Walmart Discover approved but

[ Edited ]

I am supposed to be laying off applications but after 3 months of filling out the Walmart application and not submitting, today I hit submit ;( I was approved for the walmart discover, starting limit is $2000 but my APR  22.9%? Should I call recon to lower APR and maybe increase limit?

I think everyone gets the same APR, that is how its listed on the T&Cs. All store cards have high APRs

22.90% APR is for all applicants, regardless of your credit worthiness. You can't lower it.

In My Wallet:
Citi Forward (12/2010) | Citi Dividend (05/2011) | Chase Freedom (11/2011) | GECRB/PayPal (05/2012)
Discover it (07/2012) | AMEX BCP (09/2012) | TD/Target REDCard (10/2012) | Chase Ink Classic (11/2012)
BofA BBR (04/2013) | FNBO/Overstock.com (02/2014) | Barclaycard Arrival (04/2014) | FIA/Fidelity AMEX (04/2014)

Okay, I just figured the the discover version might have a lower rate. No problem, at least it has the free fico. Hopefully it will have special financing around the holiday.I have the amazon store account and I love the 6 month no interest deals.

Re: Walmart Discover approved but

I have a Wells Fargo secured card $300.00 (7-1-2012) and then in Aug. got an Applied secured card $200.00 .

With these scores

  • Experian - 613
  • Equifax - 625
  • TransUnion - 661
  • do you think I'd be approved for the Wal-Mart Discover card?
