Ok, this may sound silly to many of you, but I got approved for a walmart card! Yay! After being denied in the beginning of the month I did some work and got my score from 532 to 608. Yay! Really want to TU scoring I hear they offer free...figured I needed a credit line so I can get a mortgage next year so why not with something I can use :-)

Not silly at all, I LOVE my Walmart card! Sometimes when I'm buying groceries and I run out of pocket cash ($20 or so) I just get cash back on the card because its so convenient! I always PIF though cause I just hate owing anyone money! LOL!

BTW....there's never any shame in opening a new valid account when you're building your scores from nothing to something, you should definitely be excited at the gradual climb to financial stability. Congrats hun! Smiley Wink
