Approved for Discover via new Pre-Approval site!

I have been checking the Discover Card website on a regular basis for months to see if I could land a pre-qualify message with a firm APR listed.  Always ran into a wide spread on the APR so was ready to give up for a long while.  Happened to visit the Discover site today and noticed a new pre-approval layout that required a lot more info to be entered, it almost felt like a full credit app this time around. I hit Submit and it returned a Congrats you have been pre-qualified message! The standard card and chrome card were listed and both with a single APR.

I submitted my remaining info in the application and it came back with a nice $6000 limit!  This is my highest limit on a card after my bankruptcy discharge in March and couldn’t be happier!

 

Edit to add score info: Most recent Credit Scorecard @ 657  and 7 months post Chapt 7 Discharge

 

Edited to add view of new Pre-Approval Form. I located form by:

1) Hovering over CreditCards- Find the right Credit Card Drop Down on Discover homepage

2) Select See if you're Pre-approved and the below form should load
