It's been a month since I opened my account.
I have my previous address on my DL so I called them and gave them my current address on the day I opened my account.
But they still sent it to my previous address.
I called them after 7 days and they said I would get it the next day but no.
After waiting 9 days I called them back and they said my card was returned because they sent it to the previous address.
So i gave them my current address one more time. And they said i would get my card in 7 to 10 business days.
Well... Today i got a mail from them more

if you shop at walmart supercenters, there are much much better cards. RBC Mastercard offers 2% cashback while shopping at walmart. Walmart only gives you 1.25% with no extended warranty, purchase protection. The Canadian PC World Mastercard offers 2% back at their own stores while walmart doesn't. Really $25 sign up bonus? Too little too little. Plus that $25 that walmart offers has lots of tiny print conditions attached. No thanks for such little rewards. $100, might be interested. MBNA smart cash, used to offer 3% now 2% at walmart supercenters. Plus the mbna emall used to offer a combined 5% return rate though the mbna emall portal to walmart.ca. more

I have never been late on my payments ever with the 3 years and one day my reoccuring payment was cancelled and I was not notified in any way. I contacted customer service and what a joke it was. My concern was not addressed and made to feel that I purposely avoid payment. I would not recommend this card to anyone due to their lack of customer service and scams to obtain late fees. Closed my card on the spot.

I'm not a big Wal-Mart shopper, so this card doesn't appeal to me. It seems like it has some decent deferred interest deals going on right now, so that's a positive. Of course that means you have to spend a lot of money in their stores, so that may get you into trouble later on. The late fee isn't terrible, and there's no max penalty APR, so that's appealing. But, the standard APR on this card is outrageous! I can't imagine paying 22.9% on balances; that's crazy! Not only that, but the "perks" of the card are so terrible. You get $5 back when you spend $500. That's 1% reward more

I will be canceling this credit card soon for two main reasons. First, the APR is extremely high compared to other instruments. Second, Synchrony Bank will not send you an electronic statement nor due payments warnings . Consequently, you will be charge $35 each time that you miss a payment.

The Wal-Mart Credit Card is one of the best store owned credit cards you can get, but only when you're a frequent shopper at Wal-Mart but lets be honest, not many normal human beings care to go into Wal-Mart these days. But regardless the card offers very good rewards for making purchases and even gives you rewards when using Wal-Mart gas stations which is usually rather cheap to begin with, now I can't attest to quality but it's likely one of those " get what you pay for " scenarios.

I had this card for two years now and if you pay your complete balance off online they will put a hold on your account. Recommend going into Walmart and paying off your account if you want to see the funds affect your account right away. This Synchrony Bank will decrease your credit limit without you knowing it, I called customer service and they told me to dispute it with Transunion. Telling me my credit score when down. As I check because I have their credit score as a figure my credit score when up from the last time I check it. Bad business if you ask me and I more

As a Realtor for more than 25 years a word of warning to those of you that are cancelling your cards when you are angry at the credit card company---pay the balance that is on your card or transfer it to another , but don't ever cancel a credit card as it will adversely affect your credit score----you don't ever have to use it again cut it up and throw it away, but just leave it there on your report---- it makes no sense , but whenever you cancel a card your credit score goes down.

What people really need to look out for with the Walmart Credit Card is the introductory rate of 0%, but then a regular APR that is through the roof, which will also be applied to anything purchased during the introductory period if it isn't paid down. Use it for its bonus, but then switch to a card with a better rate after the introductory period.

Trying to sign up for auto pay was a pain. By the time I enter all the security questions and answers it'd log me out for inactivity. It took me four tries going as fast as I could.

Then I finally did it and the next month they hit me with a $25 late fee, even though I signed up for the auto pay as soon as I got my first bill. This is my first late payment in 30 years and my credit score took a 20 point hit.

Not only did I NOT get the $25 sign-up bonus, I got a late fee...

Beware rude customer service. I like the credit card but not customer service. If you lack customer service skills, you should not be working with customers. I receive horrible customer service from a rep and supervisor.The way how the supervisor was talking to me it was so unprofessional I had to hang up and file a complaint. When I filed the complaint and spoke with Kelly she sounded so unconcern. So when I pay this card off I am going to close it immediately. Customers should feel value and appreciated. That is what customer service is all about. WALMART DID NOT DELIVER THAT MESSAGE.

I opened a Walmart Credit Card in order to take advantage of the $25 bonus credit and the additional $10 bonus for making qualifying purchases of $75 twice during a specific period of time. I waited 3 months and finally called to report no bonus credits were ever given to me. Took me nearly an hour on the phone to get them to credit my account. Sad news is, they said it would be done but it wasn't. Took another call and a request to speak to a supervisor to get the credits posted to my account. Something is wrong here. I doubt everyone will go to these lengths to more

I currently have the Walmart credit card and it's been a nice card. I like the fact that you can get cash out right at the register when making purchases. It does have a high interest rate, but if you use it sparingly and pay off your balance quickly, that is not an issue. You can also receive your FICO credit score if you receive electronic statements, so that's a good way to stay up on your credit. Overall, good card.

I used the Walmart Credit Card for 2-3 years without any issues. Unfortunately, my first large purchase (over $1k) was made with a service provider that did not deliver on its promises. I disputed the charge with Synchrony Bank and after 3-4 months of going back and forth with an assigned case worker, she stopped responding to my calls. Now, I sit on hold for over 25-30 minutes with their main telephone line before becoming frustrated and giving up. Synchrony Bank does not protect its customers. I will be paying my final bill, closing the account and taking my business elsewhere. Don't waste your time and open a line of more

Are these people out of their minds giving this card any stars. I have excellent credit and didn't need another card but during the holidays they had a deal to take $25.00 off your bill if you open an acct. `The problem is you have to deal with Synchrony bank. This is the worst bank I have ever had to call. They sent an e bill for the first time and the second time I used it, I was waiting for a bill but didn't get it. I got a bill next month with late fee???? I called and they were nice to remove it but it still showed on more

I recently signed up for the Walmart MasterCard after much success with the Wal-Mart store card and this card also lives up to my liking. I just love all the benefits I get when using this card. Starting with the cash back when I spend a certain amount, and money back when filling my tank at the gas station. I also love the customer service on the website and in store, they always are helpful with my questions and concerns!

Stay away from these guys, there are others cards with same benefits and better customer care. If your account balance is very low, they will not send your statement on time, so you will make late payment and interest, and forcing you to pay extra.

I am unimpressed with this credit card. They lowered my limit without advance notice, embarrassed me in front of other customers, and I have never been one day late, and always pay over the minimum. I will not EVER use this card again, it will be paid off..and discarded.

I have this credit card and I mostly love it. i pay off my statement each month and have no interest. there is a 23 day grace period which is nice. I can use it on every day items and gain rewards to my next trip. I am a frequent Walmart shopper and it is so convenient on a Wednesday before you get paid. The only problem I have had with this card is that the customer service tends to be a little on the rude side. But over all a great card to have for a just in case. I would recommend it.

I opened the card with the offer of a $25.00 credit if I spent more the $75.00. I was also told the credit would appear on my statement, but when I received it there was no credit. I called their toll free number and they applied the credit. It seems I am not the only one who had to call and ask for it... be mindful. I have not used this card enough to rate it other than this experience.

Same exact thing happened to me except they said they would apply the credit and never did. Had to call a second time and I'm hoping it will actually get applied this time. Also didn't get the additional $10 bonus credit offered for using the card for a second $75 purchase by a specific date. I patiently waited over 3 months. I doubt we are the only ones.

This card seems like it would be an okay choice, if you were just starting to build your credit. However, I don't like that there is a foreign transaction fee. With the Discover card, there are no foreign transaction fees. After the introductory grace period, the interest rate is still over 20%, so that raises a red flag. One perk of the card is the free FICO score every month. While large companies like Chase and Bank of America don't offer this feature, other companies like Discover do, so this card can hold up to the competition on that note. I like that this card has no annual fee.

We reported it immediately as soon as she recieved a statement in the amount of $3500+ mostly cash advances.A police report was filed and charges pressed or arrest warrant issued. The police report number was given to Walmart Mastercard as was the name of the user.

I have this credit card for more than 1 year. I chose this card to pay at the gas station so I can get 5 cents off, and I get $5 reward for every $500 purchase. I had some problems with the credits posted on my account. I had to call customer service more than 4 times to resolve my issue, but I still have this card.

I think that this Walmart Credit Card is good for people who shop a lot at Walmart or someone who has a large purchase to make. I used it to make a big purchase. It offers 0% apr which is an easy way to pay off a purchase. I was able to by myself a new TV and make smaller monthly payments with no interest. It also offers cash back and money off gasoline. Its a better card than others that offer no cash back and some have crazy aprs.

We were told if we applied for a Walmart Credit card in October, we would receive a $25.00 off our purchase. We purchased tires for 168.00. No credit was given at that time. The clerk said it would be on our statement. The statement came with no credit. I paid the bill and have not heard from Walmart since. When will I get my 25.00 credit?

I decided to get a Walmart MC credit card so I could get some extras around the holidays while building credit. I have an $1800 limit. After ordering online from a few different sites the card gets declined. I call and still have plenty of credit to use. Sooo I start thinking "okay, well maybe they just have good security measures and thought it was suspicious charges." I call customer service and the lady on the phone basically tells me the same thing... that they thought it was suspicious activity but she went ahead and made note and I could begin using my card again.

This card has a lot of good things going for it. The initial use bonus of $25 is better than what I have seen on other store cards and the reward bonus rate is very good. Additionally the 15% off on gas would make this card well worth using. However, due to the relatively high interest rate on purchases and advances this is a card that you would never want to carry a balance on.

Worst customer service ever. I haven't received any paper bill for 3 months so I called the customer service to find out why. The customer service is not helpful at all. They keep asking me to check my local post office which I did, but then when I call back they keep hanging up the phone. Avoid using this credit card as much as you can.

The Walmart Credit Card seems perfect for my needs- Most of my trips to Walmart are for things like diapers or shampoo. I also frequently make purchases for things like technology or furniture. I buy these things often enough that I think I could easily build up a lot of points, and actually save some money in the long run. I do get gas at Walmart often, so I like that there are gas rewards. I don't really like how they say 15 cents off per gallon, but they lower that to 5 cents later. At least it's still a good deal at five cents, but I wish that they more

The Walmart card has so far been a good card. It has a low fee ($35) which is nice. It's not my favorite though as far a rewards go. I personally perfer an airline card to this card. It's a great card if you shop at Walmart a lot, but otherwise, I prefer other cards instead of this one. The rate is also fairly high compared to most other cards I have and use.

Why did I get a bill for$81.73 when I have never used my new card. I applied for one from the WalMart clerk and received $25 off my bill. However, I paid the $81.73 with my Visa card and could not have used my Walmart card as I didn't even have it at the point. I did send a check via my bank for the $81.73 so as not to incur a late charge in case I misunderstood the clerk. Jerry Bradnick,

Credit card companies will not share the minimum credit score they require to approve an application. Without any guarantees, you can use our credit estimator here >> http://www.cardhub.com/credit-check/. If it gives you an excellent or good credit, you can try applying for the Walmart credit card.
While your credit standing is a very important factor it doesn’t guarantee acceptance. There are other variables that may play a role such as outstanding debts, your income and your job status.
