Re: Walmart Love!!

No I didn't initiate it. Each time I hit the 'Luv' button it said it was not eligible at the time. I even hit it the day before the increase. Go figure haha.

I know a way to get your Walmart TU FICO multiple times per month. Of course I don't think we're allowed to talk about how.

You can't say that and not tell us! :smileyhappy: 


Do you think getting cash back when making a purchase at Walmart has any negative effect on getting a CLIs from them?  When I applied for one of my cards (don't remember which one), they asked if I take cash advances. I usually never do but I have got $60.00 from Walmart twice. Just wanted to see how it works and if the limit is $60.00 per month or just $60.00 per transaction (It's per transaction). My card will be PIF montly. 

If you look at your statement they will list your cash advance limit, its $60 per day. Mine is $200 I don't think it grows normally. 


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.

Re: Walmart Love!!

I got shot down when I tried for a CLI after receiving my new card. Tried the # on the back of the card and the back door #.  I received my denial letter today. The reason listed is -


Insufficient experience at your current credit limit.  


So... I'll put the card to use, PIF each month and maybe I'll see some love from there in 4-5 months.
