Re: Discover unOfficial Data Points

Both of us tried again. Denied, the CLI links and Thank you for being a valued customer links are Junk. These links might be worse then the Discover Prequal site..

 

I can understand mine being denied because its over 20k but my DW at $1500 and over 50% utilization on that card, we are trying to beat Discover into submission...

 

DW even asked in chat what it takes, the lady said apply whenever you want... 

 

I keep telling her it takes time.

 

Were both over 6 months since Discover approving a CLI. DW's $300 auto doesn't really count in my book.

Congrats on the nice CLI, and getting the rounded number now, I like them too.  More importantly(grinning), thank you for sharing those dates with me.    My chapter 7 was discharged in 12/2011, and my Discover was denied in 10/2015 during my first rebuild spree.  My scores are much higher now though, so you've given me a strong feeling that I can be approved when I do my "round 2" stage in about 6 months. 

 

Then again, I did have a sizeable sum on the card when IIB.  Then again yet still, I did pay on it for years before deciding to file, so who knows?  Either way, you've encouraged me.  

This message is endorsed by me.  Thanks for your support.

Re: Discover unOfficial Data Points

I just asked my step daughter to request an increase. Apparently they gave her a $1000 increase already. She didn't notice. She's had the card since Aug of 2016. Started with a $1000 limit. It was $2000 when she pulled up the account today. AAoA 1 yr with a 779TU. They gave her another $1000 today for a total of $3000. This is a student Discover card. Having her to open a SSL along with adding her as an AU to a couple of my cards, has really jump started her credit!

Re: Discover unOfficial Data Points

I tried for another manual CLI last week at the 30/31-day mark from my first CLI. Denied, and the letter came in yesterday with the "insufficient experience at this credit limit" explanation, which wasn't really unexpected. I'll give it another shot next month at the 60/61-day mark.

Nice.  Hitting $5k is a good feeling.  Chase may follow suit in time, especially if your Discover limit grows some more in the upcoming months.

Re: Discover unOfficial Data Points

[ Edited ]

Thought I would share my data here today for my disco journey so far. 

 

Approved 12/2016 for 3000

No auto love at 3 months. 

5/5/2017 hit the request button ... 3000 increase to 6000. At time of increase had zero balance but that month reported 600 close. I paid it. Waited for it to post and requested. 

7/17/2017 hit the request button. Immediate decline. With a will receive mail in 3 to 5 days. This time my statement did not cut and I have about 350 in charges on it it. 

Scores ex 740 and TU 705. 

Only new account added was chase Amazon.

Not sure if my info will help any others but thought I would post. Was disappointed at the decline as I give disco all of my love. Will try again in a month or two. 

Gardening from 6/2017 to ??
