It is a store card. But as you will see from the reviews below, this is also a card for those who do not have stellar credit. It appears that it is relatively easy to get. Bear in mind that a lot of the folks who write a review here have had their credit line increased.

Had a 589 score when I got approved. At the same time, I also had the Credit One and a Cap One secured ($300 CL). My CR has a couple of baddies which happened 5 years ago. Am glad I got this card as I can now take baby steps to rebuild my score.

TU score was 632. Income was 55k. Applied and got approved. I already have the First Premier and Credit One. Now that this card comes with no annual fee, I'll slowly get rid of the other two after I get another no annual fee card.

Score was 645 with EQ. Have a Cap One and FP. I had tried getting a Discover and Citi but was not approved for either. Anyway, am glad I got this card. I'll be targeting the Walmart Discover after a year or so.

EQ score was 625. Got approved for $500 CL. A year later, with on time payments (most of them in full), I got my CLI to $1000.

I was thrilled to get the CL that I got with my score. This is my 4th year with this card now. For the first year or two, I've had the occasionally $100 CL increase. The during the last year, I had a couple of $500 increases. This allows me to buy more fancy electronics with the card!

Score was 730 (TU I think). CL given was $800. This was great and I have used close to the full limit for a flat screen TV and washer dryer. A year later, got a CLI and it is now $1500.

Applied for this card once and was declined. 6 months later with hardly a change in my score (674 EQ), I was approved for a $500 CL. This is my first no annual fee card since my credit took a nose dive. Before this, I have Credit One and Cap One secured ($300 CL each).

Am a student and shop at Walmart near my campus. Got this card with a $1k CL. I always pay in full and am very happy with this card. Will probably try for the Discover version soon.

I am sort of in the rebuilding since coming out of BK. Have a Credit One before I applied and got approved for this card. I plan to stay way before my CL and see how this card works out in terms of helping me with my credit score.

Got a pre approval letter from GE Bank. Applied and got $500 CL with a 587 TU score. I thought the limit was a little low. After reading the comments here and some other forums, it looks like that is a normal starter limit. I am some other store cards and just want to have some diversity in my credit profile.

Got this card a couple of years ago. I shop quite a bit at Walmart so I do use this card quite a bit. I once maxed out on a lcd TV but other than that, I go nowhere close to my CL. Then after a year, I got my lines increased to $1000. After about another 6 months, it increased to $1700. Now, my limit is $2500. I am pretty pleased with this.
