[ Edited ]

Month ago I was getting mails pre approvals . 12.99 - 15.99 APR . This month my report has been updated FICO EQ 723. I went to Discover IT pre-approval site. GOT 9.99% That's is minimum  I think. 0%par for 14 month pr and 0% for 14 Balance tr. + 9.99% after.  Even web site states 10.99 - something . So here you go 9.99% =) I have clear History just 1 year 2 month something =) If this help someone also after pre-approval I clicked apply now > redirected all what I can see is my name, social , info about product and submit button. Even there is no space for Annual income LOL ?= )) I am holding my hands and will apply for PENFED, Then AMEX 250$ sign in bonus via creditcard match, then DIcover IT =) . Thanks everyone on this Forums.
