I just received a Pre approval in the mail so I said what the heck. I applied and was approved for 1500. While that's decent, I would like more. Should I call in now or wait until I receive the card? I have one baddie from four years ago and my scores were close to 700s last I checked.

I just called them 2 hours ago and got approved for 8K!! Call them back! And my credit score is on my signature line if that helps, with 3 late payments on record from 6 years ago. Good luck.

Re: Discover It cli

I just called and the lady I spoke to say I can request an increase after having the card for 6 months. Is there another number I can call to talk to someone? The number I used was 800-347-9449. Also, does it matter that I listed myself as being a full time student on the app? I am working and a full time student but there wasn't an option for multiple occupations.
