Discover IT Approved!!

I decided to try again for Discover as my last Collection fell off from all of my reports this past month (Officially Collection Free!), I was not expecting much since i was denied for the Discover More just 2 months ago.

 

After clicking on the Submit Application button it asked me for additional employment information, I took this as good news because at least i was not denied immediately, After clicking on Submit Applicaton again i got the message "We are unable to approve you for the terms you requested", my sadness quickly turned into joy when it also said that i was Approved but with different terms, all i had to do was accept the new terms and i was instantly approved!.

 

Basically the only difference was that  the APR is 6% for the first 6 months (Instead of 0%) and 22% thereafer (Instead of 11%), I don't really care much for this since i usually PIF anyway.

 

I am so happy since the discover was one of my goal cards and i did not think i would get it so soon, I only have one negative left on my report but it is a big one: a 3 year old charge off, My Equifax score 2 months ago was 645 but this was before the collection fell off, I am guessing that going from having a collection to being collection free must have given me a nice boost.

 

I still don't know what my limit is but all of my cards (Freedom, Cap One Cash Rewards) only have a $500 limit, hopefully Discover gives me my first 4 digit limit!.
