To start with the Discover version you need good-excellent credit,  When I got my Walmart card my TU score was 703 and still was given the store version I also had an GE Amazon card that was over 6 months old so I had an existing relationship with no late payments on any credit cards. 


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 & Delta Gold 6k & Zync NPSL, Sally Mae5k 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.

I agree with james that you should need at least 700 to get the Discover, at least 630 with no recent baddies for store.

Re: Walmart Discover vs. Store card

My WalMart TU score is 761, I still just have the store card version and have had my WalMart card since '08. No need for the Discover IMO, since I already have IT. Don't need another new tradeline floating around anyway.

what's your limit now?

 

i just saw alot of people posting them getting 2/300 dollar limits. 

 

well glad you got that. 

by the next time all my cards report i can get into the 1-7 percent. 

kohls, ae, mc, best buy, and macys all reported balances, even though they were paid. sigh. 

since then ive paid off all cards but best buy. 

still using the freedom but going to pif before statement cuts and just use debit for a little until everything reports right.

Re: Walmart Discover vs. Store card

I'm at $2,500, but have the Wmt Discover now. Store card got to $2,400. My scores now are like 670-680'ish. In order for them to approve a brand new Wmt Discover account, it seems like the applicant needs to have extensive 'bank card' experience. By bank card, I mean like current Visa, MC, Amex, Discover
