I haven't received my Walmart card yet, but I was worried about this exact thing also. I've had improvement the last two months and if there is a big differencee...I will be bummed too.

If it makes you feel better, not many lenders use the Walmart scoring model, which is the TU 08. You just need to find out what your TU 04 score is, which is what more lenders use Smiley Happy
