Pre-Approved for Walmart Store Card

Imagine my surprise when signing on to the Walmart website to so a little shopping for some Headphones for the hubby and when I went to check out found out I was pre-approved for the Walmart credit card!!!:smileyhappy:  I was very surprised because back in late January I was denied TWICE ( I applied- instant denial and then recon-denied).  The application had most of my information already filled in and all I had to do was hit the button.  I did and was approved!:smileyhappy:

 

Happy! This card will get a lot of use because they just opened a Super Walmart in my area!!!! Yay!!! Plus I'm happy to get the free TU Fico Score each month! No longer have to pay for it here on MyFIco for $19.99!!

Re: Pre-Approved for Walmart Store Card

It should be a hard pull.  I have not gotten a peep from SW or QM for the DM card I apped on Feb 23.  Did 2 BT's already. TU got the HP, yet here I sit, waiting for SW or QM to let me know about a new account.... Or a HP. Or a FICO change from a HP.

Re: Pre-Approved for Walmart Store Card

Would love to know if there's a way to see about pre approval without buying something.

myFICO is the consumer division of FICO. Since its introduction 20 years ago, the FICO® Score has become a global standard for measuring credit risk in the banking, mortgage, credit card, auto and retail industries. 90 of the top 100 largest U.S. financial institutions use the FICO Score to make consumer credit decisions.
