DISCOVER IT (FIRST MONTH)

SO I HAVE A DISCOVER IT AND THE STATEMENT CUTS TOMORROW. ITS AT A ZERO BALANCE, BUT I DID USE IT ALL MONTH AND THEN JUST PAID IT OFF. WHAT I WAS WONDERING SHOULD I HAVE A BALANCE REPORT SINCE IT IS NEW? I ALREADY ONLY HAVE 1 CARD REPORTING A BALANCE EVERY MONTH (ITS CARRYING A BALANCE BUT IM PAYING IT DOWN) SO IS IT FINE TO JUST HAVE IT REPORT 0 ALL THE TIME OR LET SOMETHING REPORT SINCE ITS NEW?? THANKS IN ADVANCE.

Jumped out the Garden! But I'm running back with Roses!

have you gotten any auto cli's? we all know discover is very much YMMV, but there have been some recent threads on here debating if its more about usuage or balance activity. i do both but usually let it cut w/ some balance and have gotten 2 auto cli's over 9 months

Re: DISCOVER IT (FIRST MONTH)

Discover likes to see balances reporting. If you want CLI's from Discover, then always let a balance report.

Re: DISCOVER IT (FIRST MONTH)

I receive auto CLIs even though I don't carry a balance and I PIF before the statement cuts.

Re: DISCOVER IT (FIRST MONTH)

I'm cringing at the all caps lol. I've read that discover likes to see a reported balance and then PIF for good CLIs.
