If you have installment history, that helps too. Also, citi is NOT good with recons if you haven't already come across that issue

CONGRATS!!!

What's the difference between motiva and more?

MOTIVA automatically signs you up for cashback rewards. And you get it for ALL purchases...vs Discover More where you have to sign up for each quarter and cashback is only valid for selected catagories for that quarter. I should've apped for MOTIVA. LOL

 


No, Discover More also gives you cashback on all purchases. They both have the same reward structure in that you get 0.25% cash back on your first $3,000 of purchases and all Walmart purchases, and up to 1% back after that. The only real difference is that More gives you 5% cashback on rotating categories, while Motiva gives you 5% cash back on interest when you pay your bill on time.

 

Motiva is only appealing if you're planning to pay interest often.
