Wal mart credit card question

My fiancé is looking at getting a wal Mart credit card. She has care credit charge card, and from what I understand they are ran both by the same company. What do they look for when applying for wal mart cards. Are they inquiry sensitive, or focused on score and history?

Re: Wal mart credit card question

Without knowing her scores or credit history, it is difficult  to say whether she might get approved for Walmart. It is one of the easier to get starter cards because they will approve with a lower CL. Since they  issue both a store card and a Discover version it can grow with you. GE is good about CLI's as well.

They pulled TU for me in New York. You don't choose which to apply for, they will first consider you for the Walmart Discover card then the regular Walmart card if you don't qualify.

I'm from Florida, and all of the GE backed cards that either I or my DH have received have been the result of TU pulls.

I think for the most part GE will pull TU. As for them being inquiry sensitive, I wouldn't say they are, but ymmv. I got approved for most of their GE backed cards with a few recent inquiries.

Re: Wal mart credit card question

Although a long shot.. While signed in to my walmart.com account I went to the card application and it showed I was pre-approved for a certain amount. I went ahead and filled in my last 4 of social, dob and phone number and was approved for the store card with no HP.
May be worth to see if pre-approved.
