I really don't think approvals go by score but more about the content of your CR, it seems like Walmart and store cards are inconsistant on their approvals. You can be in the 500's with good history and get approve versus 600's with slow pay or baddies and get denied. So scores don't make much of a big difference as long as your content meets their standards.


There are certainly some triggers that freak out the automated system for applicants with higher scores. Those same triggers are most likely not present on the reports of applicants in the 500s.  Therefore, I somewhat agree with this statement. Though I'm not certain it's possible to have a score in the 500's with good history, per se. There has to be some sort of not-so-clean information on a CR to have a 500-599, I would imagine.

Re: Walmart Store Card

After approval does it really take the 7-10 days to receive the card?

Re: Walmart Store Card

Yea, generally if your approved and your scores are under 700 you'll get the store version. With moderate use and maintain a score over say 710 or so, there is a good chance that you will be upgraded. But it normally takes at least a year and a half at that level.

Yes. You can usually use it online before then, though.

Re: Walmart Store Card

I was approved for $300 last month with a 646 TU. I was very surprised because I burned in my bankrupcty, discharged in 2/12. My card arrived exactly 7 days after I applied for it. I like getting my TU score every month.
