Question about the walmart card

I applied last week for the store Walmart card. I got the usual 7-10 day thing. I just looked at Equifax and they did a soft pull. Does anyone know why? Not that I am complaining! Lol

Did they pull TU?

This point should be stressed more here an app spree should not be encouraged because its not for every profile
A thick file will support more apps at one time while a thin file may see negative reaction to this process

IMHO 4+ at one time is to many for a new file and it should be kept to 1-3 a year but we get caught up sometimes in seeing the little wheel spin and the words approved

Re: Question about the walmart card

Reason I ask is because they usually pull TU and if they did another pull perhaps you were borderline so they pulled again 

Have you called?
