Re: Any successful Discover More/Discover Apps lately?

I got my denial letter today :smileysad: The reasons they gave me for the denial is:

Length of time accounts have been established

% of balance to credit limit too high on revolving accounts

Too many inquiries last 12 months.

 

I will wait for a good while on all apping and just pay all bills on time then I guess try for the Discover card again. Hopefully next time they approve me, if not I guess its fate to not have the card. :smileytongue:

Hi michaels,

 

Good strategy - Waiting on apping will address the "length of time accounts have been established" and "Too many inquiries last 12 months".  Can you share what your current AAofA is?

Now, to address the "percentage of balance to credit limit too high on revolving accounts" - what's your current utilization?  If you're willing to share that info, it will be helpful to other folks who are thinking of applying. 

 

Because all three of the factors listed are under your control, it's somewhat likely that you can change your "fate."

 

This card is on my wish list for next year, so I always love to know what they consider when they look at us wishful applicants.

Just puttin' syrup on something, don't make it pancakes.

Re: Any successful Discover More/Discover Apps lately?

My currnet AAoA is just over a year. I do believe it is 1 year 2 months. My oldest account is 2 years 11 months. Im 21 so im pretty new to credit. My Uti is high as well becuase of unexpected expenses when my car broke down. It is right at 48% used. Hope this all helps for everyone, im in Florida and they pulled EQ.

Re: Any successful Discover More/Discover Apps lately?

You will get back soon enough...seems like there is hope for everyone under 700 for a Discover Card, which is pretty cool...

1/28/2015: Equifax FICO-838 (Citi Diamond Preferred)

12/14/2014: Trans Union-814 (Discover), July 25, 2014: Experian-779; Equifax-774.

FAKOS: Jan 2015: Credit Karma-778; Credit Sesame-782; Credit.com-773.

AMEX BCP-17,000; AMEX EDP-15,000; US Bank Sig Visa-9000; Discover Cashback Bonus-7200; Citi Diamond Preferred-7100; Citi Thank You Preferred-6500 Chase Freedom-6500 . Gardening until Jan 2015....or beyond.

Goals: 800's across the board; $100,000 in revolving credit. Eventually, compile enough cash to not care about credit scores.

Re: Any successful Discover More/Discover Apps lately?

I applied yesterday and was approved today for $1700. I'm not sure what they pulled but my EQ is 657 and TU is 683. I was denied for AMEX Zync a few days ago. I'm actually about to call them for a recon. Considering my credit history I'm pleased with $1700. I asked if they could go any higher but the CSR said that was all they can approve me for now but after 6 months of use I could apply for a CLI.

Re: Any successful Discover More/Discover Apps lately?

I recently applied and got approved for the Discover More card.  I had been receiving offers once a month for about 6 months now, and finally got myself in the position to apply.

 

I was given a $4K credit limit with 0% purchases 9 months and 0% BT with 4% fee (no minimum or cap) for 12 months.

 

They pulled Transunion.

 

My TU score is about 750.

 

I asked for a recon to a higher CL since I want to take advantage of the BT but I was told that was the highest they wer giving new customers and that I can apply for a CLI in 6 months.  The usual CLI is $1k-$2k.
