The downside of the Walmart Discover is the rewards structure (pitiful at best) but the card is great overall (decent financing offers)... that is, if you like bright orange as a color scheme.

Hi, guys, I just wonder why many folks get the Wally cards? Any special for this hard compare to Discover it? 


I only app'ed for the Walmart card to get the free TU FICO score. Now that Discover it gives a TU too, it doesn't seem so good now, even though I've read here that the versions of TU are different for both cards.

My TU Fico is the same between Walmart, Barclays and Discover. To OP, if I already had Discover IT, I wouldnt get a walmart card personally. I only got Walmart for the free Fico and to say the orange is horrendous is a gross understatement. Ugliest card I have.

Well I got it the card because it was one of the easiest to get for rebuilding. Plus they offer special interest free financing on select purchases. Works great this time of year when I picked up an X1 and iPad air.

The other benefit of the WallyWorld card is the ability to get quick cash on purchases, buy a pack of gum pay with your walmart card get the option of $20-$60 in cash back no special fees, no imediate interest on the charge, PIF with in 25 days, and it free cash in your pocket good if you don't cary a debit card any more and live/work near a walmart. The Cash over Limit on the store card is 10% of CL or $200 which ever is more.

 

the discover version gets up to $100 in cash back, and the cash over limit is 10% of your CL with no limit.

Re: Why Wally GOOD?

I have the walmart discover and while the rewards are pitiful, they always run 0% financing deals for 6, 12, or 18 months depending on how much you spend. Also, I get a discount on gas with the card.

Re: Why Wally GOOD?

I got the Walmart Discover card primarily for the TU score. I don't use the card at all.

My brother (Authorized User) is the main user of the card. His main benefit is the 5 cent discount/gallon of gas. Previously, he was using a Walmart prepaid gift card to get the discount. I told him to use my card instead. The payback for me... his cashback earned comes to me Smiley Happy
