Discover Application

Has anyone applied recently for a Discover card lately? If so, which card?

Scores?

Util%? (are they sensitive to high util?)

Baddies?

AAOA?

INQ?

Any idea what CB they pull in California?

Util%? (are they sensitive to high util?)

 


 

I was recently declined because I accidentally let $2,800 in balances report.  On $15,000 worth of credit lines.  

 

The lady on the phone essentially called me a dead beat and said that I was way too high of a risk with those "exceptionally high debts on my cards."

 

I was shocked, since when did $2,800 become an "exceptional" debt.

Discover has become worse then Amex when it comes to revolving balances.  They have CLD our business account 3 times now and think 1 on my moms personal

I am pretty much done trying to get a Discover card again.  I had one 3 years ago, and it was nice and all, but not an "exceptional" card.  So far I love my new Amex, so I might be sticking with them.

Re: Discover Application

Applied this AM online and was instantly approved for $7K. CSR said something weird like, "you've been approved for $7K CL. Will that meet your credit needs?"

 

I said sure. 

 

App'd Discover More. I have mid 700 scores, no baddies, etc, probably 3 or 4 new inquires.

Re: Discover Application

I applied last week and after answering security questions I was approved for $2500. Pretty cool considering I was denied for Citi Forward a month or so ago.


Scores?

dont't know I imagine between 680 to 720 judging from some of the FAKOs.


Util%? (are they sensitive to high util?)

<10%; not sure if they are sensitive


Baddies?

1 paid collections account


AAOA?

38 months; oldest account 7 years old


INQ?

3 on EX

no
