I got approved for a Walmart Store Card around 1 hour ago, I applied online and it's say "pre-approved" for $500 CL Store Card, I filled the application, but it didn't ask for mi DL/ID number, income, and this stuff, I submitted the applicaton and got the 7-10 days message.
Reading forums through internet, I seen that when you got this message for Walmart Credit Cards, you need to call Credit Customer Service, and I did it.
I talked with a CSR and she verified my name, address, SSN, and asked me a few things, like my income, and 3 multiple option questions to verify my identity.
1. Car associated with me.
2. Address associated with me.
3. Address associated with me.
After that, she inmediately said me: congratulations you've been approved for a Walmart Credit Card with $500 CL.
So, as a tip, if you've applied online and got the message 7-10 days call the Credit Customer Service Number: 1-877-969-3668 and check if it works for you.
By the way I only know my Credit Karma FAKO Score: 652.
This is my 3th credit card.
My credit history is 4 months, all payments on time. My oldest account is a Wells Fargo Platinium Credit Card, 4 months obviously.
I got a Capital One for Newcomers with Rewards on November 2, that is not reported to my records yet.
And now I got this one, Walmart Credit Card.
I'll wait 2 months and after that, ask for a CLI since I saw that is it really easy lol.
Greetings and I hope my information is helpful for someone.

I got the Walmart Discover 2 weeks ago for the sole purpose of getting the free monthly TU08 FICO scores.
In my case, the CK Transrisk score (695) and Walmart TU08 FICO (698) are very close, at least for November.
It'll be very interesting to track these 2 scores in the coming months because my credit profile will be all over the place, with more cards yet to report, from 1 to 6 cards reporting a balance at any given time, and individual card utilization ranging from 1% to 35%.
Eventually, I'll settle back into my usual routine (all zero balances except for one reporting 1%).
Enjoy your new card! And don't forget to sign up for paperless billing to get your free monthly TU08 FICO.

What's the process for walmart preapproval? Is it similar to WFNNB check-out method?
Which CRA do they usually run?
As far as I can tell, I just had a walmart.com account and while logged in I went to apply for the card. Upon clicking Apply it gave me the pre-approval with my name/address filled out, instead of the entire application. It just asked for DOB/Social and a phone number.
They usually pull TU. Although they have yet to HP me and I got approved on monday.
