The Walmart store card is accepted ONLY at Walmart and Sams Club.

The Walmart Discover card is accepted whereever Discover cards are accepted. For that reason (wider acceptance), I chose the Walmart Discover card.


CS = Credit Sesame

It gives you a monthly FAKO, not FICO. Experian National Equivalency Score (360-840). There are no daily updates, nor much detail about what's on your report. So people basically log in every month to check the EX FAKO. I guess it's ok for tracking trends but not much else. The monthly updates normally happen early in the month, 4-6th. My December update came out today... down 34 Smiley Sad
