My CreditKarma's Vantage score is always the same as Wal-Mart TU08 score, when it updates.

This must be coincidental because the VantageScore range is 501-990 and Walmart's TU08 range (a FICO score) is 300-850. 

11/02/2012 Peak - EQ 790 (ScoreWatch EQ FICO)
12/08/2014 Current - TU 823 (Walmart MasterCard TU FICO 08 Classic)
GOAL - 800! - App free since 09/07/2014

Don't even bother with Credit Karma.  They aren't even close to being right.  Their score is about a hundred points off from my FICO score and it hasn't changed in about a year, despite massive changes in my credit situation.  They aren't even worth what you pay for it and it's free.
