Was just approved for the Discover More Card.  Initial limit is 1000.00.  Was hoping for at least 3000.00.  Is 1000.00 normal?



While I'm truly sorry that you're disappointed, let me offer you another view point...

 

My score is roughly equal to yours... (EQ=664) and Discover gave you $1,000 more credit than they'll give me.  :smileysad:

 

No baddies on any of my cra's...but lots of inquiries. 

 

(Is 33 a lot?  :smileytongue:)

Current Scores: EX 706 (FCR) TU08: 660 Wally. 01/03/2015.

$1,000 is very good starting limit. I think $3,000 might be pushing it a little. I do believe the 2 30 day late payments in the last 2 years may have hurt you a little. i doubt the ones from 4 years ago did much damage.

Re: Approved from Discovery More - iniitial limit disappointing

I understand that the 30 days late may be contributing, but I have a 15 year credit history, no collections, no public records, many, many accounts listed as paid as agreed and very few inquiries. Also, no late mortgages. Over a 15 year period, these are the only flaws I have on my credit report. Still not understanding.

Sounds like they're treating you like the new kid on the block.

I had the same 1k approval (back in '96). It'll grow if you don't carry a balance.

Re: Approved from Discovery More - iniitial limit disappointing

I have only got 1K with 693 (EQ). No baddies. I called them to get approved. Mine is thin file with 1 year of credit history,  I had 4 cards (1 Visa, 2MC, 1 Store card) while applying, overall util was under 25% and AAoA was 8 months.  Credit Analyst was very much concerned about my thin file and only approved 1K. I tried negoatiate with him for 2K but he denied my request and asked me to wait for CLI after 6 months. 

 

I love my discover card, I am using that for all small purchases and planning to pif every month only to get decent CLI after 6 months.

Re: Approved from Discovery More - iniitial limit disappointing

The Good:

 

You're in with Discover and they are very conservative. But they will grow

 

The Bad:

 

A $1K CL is disappointing

 

 

 

It goes to show how YMMV. I had a similar credit profile as you. Discover was the first prime I got last year and back then my total revolving credit was $1900 on 3 cards. They gave me $6500. I was hoping back then for at least a $2K CL.

 

So dont be too disapppointed. Just use them well and they will be good to you. It pays to Discover :smileyhappy:

Discover will certainly grow with you though. My Discover More started out at $500.

It sure will

 

When did you get your Discover and what is your current CL if I may ask?
