Am I Pre-approved (discover) or just a glitch??

I just went to check pre-approved offers in the discover website and I got this message 

Congratulations AlbotoYou are pre-approved3 for these offers.


am I really pre-approved or is it just glitch?? can someone else go and check?

 

I had 3 pre-approval offers for the more in the mail, but it was weird that I could not see any online until today.

If you used the "cardbuilder" app then I think you are good to go.

 

From what I understand, if you scroll to the bottom and see "opt out", that means you're in their system (or something like that, dont totally take my word for it).

I dont plan on getting a discover card even though its nice to see pre-approval offers. I want to get a BCE, but Im waiting for my reports to update at the end of the month.

 

My scores as of august 14th was 675 EQ from (chase Freedom) Util. was 78% back then. right now its in 23% and it will be in 2% when the other cards update in my report. I will get my score by then and see where Im at.

Well at least it said "Congratulations".  Sometimes it'll say something like "Good News we found a recommended card for you!"
