On your CC portal. When you log in it'll say "View your FICO score" right under the account summary


So you access all of your credit card information (including the FICO score) through walmart.com? I just got an instant approval for walmart discover online and was issued a temporary account number so maybe that is why I can't see the link?

Yeah you have to wait until you get your card and register it. I think you need to do paperless statements in order to get your fico score. 

 

If you just go to walmart.com and scroll all the way down (or do CTRL + F : "Credit") you'll see the "Apply now" button and the "Manage online account" button, click the manage online account and then you'll be able to activate your card and create an account and get a score and everything.

@Sparkz how long have you had the WM account open?

I believe Ive had Walmart for about a year and a half. I was really surprised. i just app'd for the SAMS club discover and got the store card instead. When it comes, Ill be calling to cancel it


The card doesn't come, you visit your sam's club and they reissue your membership card with the credit card information on it.  I would advise just keeping it, and asking for CLI's every 4 months. After a couple years they will give you the discover version. You had no hope of getting the discover card at the start if your Signature scores are current. They want at least a 740 fico to get the discover version of any GE card when you AP. But they do upgrade to the discover card usually after 2+ years of good payment history even if you only have a 680 possibly less.


Cards: Chase Southwest 20k & CSP 10k & Freedom 6.6k & Amtrak 4.6k, FNBO DISC 14.9k Oregon Duck 5k, & AMEX BCP 15k & Hilton Surpass 7.5k & Zync NPSL, Sams Club MC 10k, Paypal Extras MC 6k, CapOne QS 2.5k, QS 750, Amazon 3.9k, Walmart 4.5k, Citi Simplicity 7k, HHonors Gold 1k (moved 5k CL to Simplicity), Discover IT 6.5k and a nice stack of store cards.
Last APP 4/26//2014 no plans for new credit I think I have enough.

Re: WALMART FICO IS UP (SEPT/2012)!!!!

What date is showing when you view your scores?  Mine says - As of August 31, 2012 your FICO score is _____

 

It's said that since... August 31st. I thought it would update on the 10th and the new score would be posted by now. 

 

Thanks!

Down 7 to 838.  I let 4 accounts show a small balance (< 1%) to see how this affected my score.  I was surprised that it went down so little.  

EQ FICO - EQ08 - 850 -9/2/14
TU FICO - TU08 - 850 - 7/18/14
