If you have read our review on the regular Walmart credit card, you could see that we are not big fans. We decided to go ahead and take a look at the Walmart Discover to see if it was any better than its sibling.

Credit Card Review

Do You Recommend This Card
Yes
Why?
Previously we didn't recommend this credit card, however the reward options have improved dramatically over the years. Now you would be hard-pressed to find a card that offers the same range of benefits, including its excellent gas discount combined with it's average cash back and zero interest offer.

A note of caution; as with all GE Capital Retail Bank issued accounts, if you fail to pay off your entire balance before the end of the financing offer, you will be charged interest for each month that carried a balance.
Who Will Get the Most Out of This Credit Card
The person that is looking for an above average gas reward that they can use everywhere, and it comes with a cash back rewards program.

Interest Rate (APR)

Is the Interest Rate Competitive
The offered interest rate is above average where other store cards are concerned. Where as other issuers will give you a range of rates, this is only one offered through Walmart.

Rewards

How Do You Like the Rewards?
One of the biggest advantages is the gas reward, which currently gives customers $0.05 off per gallon.

Cash Back Rewards

At first we thought the rewards program sounded average at one percent cash back, but then we dug a little deeper and found that it's not a flat one percent on all purchases. Let's break it down to see how much you actually save.
Spent in a YearPercent of Cash Back
Up to $1,500.00.25
$1,500.01 to $3,000.00.50
Over $30001.00
Only if you spend more that three thousand dollars in a year will you earn one percent. Plus this rate resets every year on your accounts anniversary. After you accrue ten dollars in cash back you will receive a check in the mail.
