Back in the glory days, when credit and food were cheap, it took a mere 2-liter bottle of Pepsi to bait customers into filling out a Walmart credit card application.

Recent events have forced America’s largest retailer to resort to increasingly drastic methods to entice applicants. Filling out an application is now worth one of four different sodas, VitaminWater, or a box of candy. The way things are going, a completed Walmart credit card application will soon be worth a party-size bag of chips. The horror!
