Not sure...Do they have an odd way of billing cycles?
At one time some of their cards used two-cycle billing. I'm not sure if they still do, but I do know my Discover More card started out w/ it. I think it's based on your credit tiers w/ Discover.
I cold app'd online and rec'd a 1.1k limit. I had an old Discover card in the early 90s and I didn't treat it very well and they STILL took me. After 6 months and no auto cli, I called and agreed to a hard inq to bump the limit to 3.5k.
I love my Discover More card. I was getting ready to buy some furniture (roughly 2.5k) thru the Shop Discover site for the bonus 5%. I asked if I could have my APR reduced and they took it down to 3.9 for 6 months. In less than a year I earned about 300 in cash back.

700's should do the trick.
More seems to be the easier one to get and higher limits.

Whirled, I was offered the More card is that the best card?
Do you think my scores will make the grade with them?
The More card was the best fit for me! You might be attracted to a different card based on your needs. Their website is great at explaining the pros and cons of each card.
In this economy I can't even begin to fathom what works with creditors these days. I app'd back in Feb w/ scores in the mid 600s, a few lates/collections/CO from 2005 and earlier, along with about 50k for income.
Please let us know if you decide to go for it!

I actually was surprised I got it because I have a high debt to income ratio with my kids cars (cosigned) and a couple of cards with high util% (once again because of my lovely children in college LMAO then I start to cry LOL). All that said my score is around 695 +/-
I'm just going to use it for cash back and PIF on this one with my CU debt card and harvest another .5% cash back
