Oh wow. I told myself that I wouldn't app for anything until 2014 because I was so sure I wouldn't qualify for anything until then. Yet recent events has enabled me to just... do so anyway. I figured why not. I went over to Discover It... submitted the application...and bam. Instant approval. I'm shaking. I WAS NOT EXPECTING THIS.

 

I don't know what my credit limit is but I am just shocked they APPROVED THE APPLICATION!!! AHHH I'm so excited!!! Is Discover It a good card? What can I expect?!?!? If I was approved for that, what are my chances with Chase Freedom? I'm so giddy. Ahhhh

 

edit: It was a 1,000 instant approval. Wow! It's not my highest CL ( Amazon is presently ) BUT IT'S STILL amazing! YAY!

 

edit: currently pending decision for chase freedom. guess we'll see where that goes.

 

edit: $500 conditional approval once we do the verification Monday. Could not have done it without MyFico forums. :smileyhappy: Thank you all SO MUCH!


 Do you know who Discover pulls ? I'm in FL and really want to apply but I'm thining for 630 EQ may still be too low :-(

Re: DID NOT expect a Discover It APPROVAL!!! (update pg 2)

Hmmmm, thanks for the info - my scores are in my siggy and I just added a 6k NFCU visa to the 4 store cards I have already. I would really love a Discover - and EQ  is my strongest score (635). I do have 4 inquiries in the last 2months - do you guys think I may have a shot ? Should I go with the walmart version or a different one ? 

 

BTW, my visa hasn't started reporting yet. It's my only prime card.

Re: DID NOT expect a Discover It APPROVAL!!! (update pg 2)

Welcome to the Discover Family.  It is a great card I think, I just got one too this year.  I had to recon mine and recon the Chase Freedom card too.  I got $1K on Disco and $500 on Chase, which I think seems to be the standard for most of us in the same realm! 

 

I got the 10,000 points offer on the Chase. 

 

Discover pulled my TU and I am from Florida too. 



Rethink every purchase you make, before you make it. Use the card with the best rewards. Pay in full each month. Redeem rewards often. Use the cards online shopping for more discounts. Smile, knowing that being thrifty allows you to actually get more out of the same amount of money!
