Walmart store credit card: research
Can anyone with recent walmart store card approval post your fico scores as available, number of collections, number of charge offs, number of public records?

Really interested in applying but want to do some research beforehand.

Thanks!!!!

I just applied today online and was improved instantly for the store card with a $700 limit. 

 

My EQ FICO is 666.  I'm not sure about my TU, the last time I got the score a few months ago it was 600, but it's hopefully a litle higher now.

 

I don't have any collections, public records or charge-offs but I have several student loans shredding my reports.  I'm in the rehab program but they don't take off the lates and fix up the tradelines until you complete the program, so I have a ton of lates.

Did you use you card at all?  Or did they give you an increase with no activity?

Re: Walmart store credit card: research

I applied for the WalMart card on 8/18 with a TU MyFICO 577 and $21k in CO.

 

I was instantly approved for $500 limit.  I also disputed some info on my Experian report yesterday and found out that WalMart is already reporting!

Applied 8/8/12 - approved for $400.  Approved for Amazon store card same day, $600.

 

TU 662 as reported on Walmart acceptance letter.

 

BK in 2005, no baddies since then, but a relatively thin file until my app spree earlier this month.

Re: Walmart store credit card: research
My TU when i activated the card (through the free TU08 ) was 655. I had 13 inqs on TU alone and was approved for $500. At the time my highest limit reported was 600, i dont know if it would have made a difference had my cap1 been reported at the time.
