Walmart reporting odity

Is it just me or has anyone else noticed that their Wal-Mart cards seem to update to the CB around the first of the month, and also on the statement date?  It is killing me with keeping my util down.  But atleast I know now, so I can be prepared.  Just wondering if I am the only one this is happening to?

Re: Walmart reporting odity

This is the second month in a row that it has happened, I was assuming that they are updating it when the do the pull to get the FICO score, but there would be no need to updated EX and EQ to get the TU FICO but why not do it all at the same time?  Anyways I am just at a loss as to why it is happening, and everytime it reports a balance my score drops 10 points!
