Approved for discover!

I told myself I would wait til next year to app for anything but I was alittle tipsy last night and figure why not LOL. Not instant, said they were processing and I called a few hours ago. They had me verify addy, income, and some questions regarding my CRs.

It was a discover more card, 1000 CL. Just real glad and feel blessed that I got in with Amex and discover in 1 year. Less than a 2 years ago I had low 500 scores ad no credit cards until last year.

Don't be discouraged people, just stay on track, there is light at the end of the tunnel!

Re: Approved for discover!

When do people typically ask for a CL with discover? Or do they at all?

Re: Approved for discover!

Congrats! There have been a lot of these types of approvals reported on this forum lately. My DH was approved last week, for the same CL and with similar scores. It's great to see so many folks moving forward in a positive direction with their credit!

 

So I guess this puts me in the Discover family as an in-law! :smileyvery-happy:

Re: Approved for discover!

I was approved for the same credit line and simlar (a little higher) scores a few weeks ago.  It was the card I'd always wanted!  A few years ago, I was in the low 500's, because of some lates and high balances.  Now I'm down to 4 30's that are 3 years old, and under 20% utilization and scores tipping 700.  It's time to sit back and watch it grow!

Amex Gold, Capital One VentureOne & Platium Cards, AAA BoA Signature Visa, Barclays Airtran & Frontier Airlines Cards, Paypal MC, Best Buy RewardZone Mastercard and Chase Speedway Mastercard....and I FINALLY Welcome to Discover...thank you and have a great day!!!!
