Re: Credit scores needed for Discover card aproval?

When I was approved for the More card last October my scores were similiar to yours on myFico. However when I got my card the letter with it said my score was 711. I don'tknow about Citi but I think you are probably good for Discover.

Re: Credit scores needed for Discover card aproval?

Thanks guys for all the advice and support. Will give it a-go very soon. I want about 4-5 prime cards with healthy limits and that will do it for me. At soe point i will like to also add a card that comes with a chip.Makes traveling across the pond a bit easier.

Re: Credit scores needed for Discover card aproval?

I got approved with a TU Fico score of 687 with a small recent collection. You should be ok and you can always recon. Good luck!
