I call the number on the letter and the lady i spoke too after i gave her the pre approved number on the lettet told me that i was approved for the card. And that i will received it within 7-10 business days. She would not tell me my credit limit. Is this a decent card to have?

It'll get you a FREE TU FICO score every month, so I say yes no matter your limit or whether you use it or not. There's no annua fee. GEMB is pretty good with CLI's. And if I recall correctly, purchased over a certain amount can qulaify for 0% interest promotions. And did I mention the FREE TU FICO score?

and don't forget the up to $40 cash back at checkout that is treated as part of your purchase vs cash advance or anything the bank will frown on... and of course use at Sams Club also.

I love the card cash advance feature it saves me an ATM fee on my debit card. It is treated as a regular purchase though listed separate on the account. On my account I can get up to $60 per day up to $140 per month. I believe the Walmart Discover card is up to $100 per day and I don't know the monthly limit on it. On My Walmart card it appears to be $20 per $100 of available credit as my limit is $700 for purchases. The free FiCo each month is just frosting on the cake.

Hmm, I received the same offer yesterday in the mail. Though, I shredded it. I figured it would be another $300-900ish card that wouldn't help that much overall. Maybe I jumped the gun a bit, and shoulda checked into it more.
The TU FICO mighta been worth it alone, oh well.

I just called and gave my approval # to the lady and she said the same thing "congrats, you'll get your card in 7-10 days".
When I asked for the CL, she said 600. I don't know if that's good or bad, but I'm happy she told me.
I've been wanting a Walmart card, but I shouldn't because I'm paying down my card that have a high utilization, so I just want to sock drawer this after using it for gas and pay it off each month. GEMB has been very good to me with various card (Gap , Chevron, Care Credit).
BURNING QUESTION: How do I use it for a free TU credit report? Is it really a TRUE FICO TU report?
Thanks for your help. This forum has helped me since 2007 and I'm forever grateful.
