Hey I just noiced something stupid.. I got an Old Navy Card and a Gap Card ( Total of 700.00) i n Credit.. But guess by who   GEMB... But they wont give me a walmart card .... Wow this is dumb ..OMG I even got a 10000 dollar auto loan .. no money up front and a 14% intrest rate.. But no walmart card... 1500 to 2000 cl Cap one card paid perfect for 6 full months but no walmart card.. This is so crazy.. I think I will apply online at Target..

I am pretty sure my FICO is not in the 600's yet and I just got approval for a Walmart discover with an opening CL of $1700. Maybe I just got lucky and got a good rep. :smileyhappy: Highest CLI yet of any card... Target Store Card: $200 Best Buy Store Card: $400 Cap One Visa: $300 Paypal Credit: $250 Old Navy: $200 Macy's: $100

Just signed up for the "Free Trial" from ScoreWatch, says Equifax is 658... Better than I thought, considering 3 years ago it was like 519.

Re: Walmart?

Got the letter fro Walmart today.. It says to many accouts deragotory...  ( I have one derogatory that I disputed from 2004)  ( It is for 141.00) Thats it... Then it went on to say the my credit lines are too new.. They should know GEMB just gave me 2 card ( Old Navy and Gap ) My cap one card is 7 months old... hen my truck loan is on my report 10,000 paid as agreed on all cards and loan... I will make around 73,000 this year with a few new accounts and alot of old ones... My DTI is 11%..  But for some odd reason my scores went boom ( 612,613,629 ) Today...WTF.. Its got to be that high balance on my cap one .. almost maxed it out last month..but still paid as agreed..
My credit scores are killing me slowly at 640, 672 and 663 I am moving up a little bit ..

I think GEMB approval process is messed up. I think they approve every so many applicants and deny the rest.

Kind of like "you're our 10th applicant this hour, approved!"

I can't get any of their cards, a friend applied for Old Navy and got instantly approved for $200 CL. Last weekend was approved at a furniture store for their card backed by GEMB with a $6000 CL(but used hubby who has excellent credit)

Here is the funny part.......not only does said friend have 1 judgment showing unpaid, but 3 paid tax liens, and 2 defaulted GEMB accounts, one of which she is currently being sued on.

They pull EQ, I have lates and a old charge off for $78.
