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

that was my problem. that when i apped (mostly instore obviously.) was only offered store versions. 

walmart i did on line and did not recon since i would just let my parents use the card to get stuff at walmart. 

i really apped for the tu score. but might go there more often now. (before maybe once every 3-4 months)

Discover More and IT cards are much easier to get, though from what I have read the GE versions will grow much faster unless you have an 800 fico score

Re: Walmart Discover vs. Store card

I got a Walmart store card back in 2008 with scores in the high 500s, so I guess I was pretty lucky.  I started with a $300 limit and it grew to $1500 and then they upgraded me to a Walmart Discover with a CL of $2000.  No CLIs since then, but I use it very sparingly since my Discover More has much better rewards.  The Walmart Discover may get some action during the holidays, if I decide I want to use their 0% financing for gifts.


Starting Score: TU: 566
Current Score: TU: 741 (Discover FICO); EQ: 755 (MyFico) EX: 774 (FAKO)
Goal Score: 800

Re: Walmart Discover vs. Store card

Does anyone know if the Walmart Discover CLIs are like the Walmart Store Card CLIs, as in...do they occur often? With my Wmt Store, I got CLIs every four months! :-)
