I'm pretty sure it's the fact that you have 10 credit cards so they see the likelihood of you using there's as slim to none. When I was accepted everything on my report except student loans (which are about 6 years old and all in good standing, never late) was at least 5-7 years old and has since been removed. I also had no credit cards at the time.

In my wallet: Discover More $11,300 11/2/12 | Chase Freedom $500 11/8/12

Initial 10/14/12 (Free Score): TU 621 /EQ 621 /EX 618
Current: 1/13/13 (Free Score): TU 708 /EQ 677 /EX 698
Initial EQ FICO: 670 11/2/12
Current EQ FICO: 698 1/13/13

Very Clean. 

12 open accounts in excellent standing! . 10 CC's and two cars



2x paid off 6 year old verizon lates!  

1x 30 day late car payment from 6 years ago 

1x  6-year old citibank settled cc 


rest is all good. Never late.  Total 27 accounts and a 10 year history.  

Those baddies are still on the report right? Perhaps it's a combination of that and the number of accounts. Still doesn't make much sense though, since your recent history looks really good.

Re: Discover Card

Well I just was approved and the customer Rep asked a lot of questions and after all that only gave me a $750 CL.

And I have scores in the low 800's and some pretty healthy credit Lines.


Go figure.


The woman interviewing me (and it WAS and interview) told me that because of the Economy (yes she actually said that) and my short history of credit reporting

they would only give me a $750 CL.





Amex Zync NPSL 9/12, Amex CostcoTrue Earnings $10K 9/12
Amex BCE $3K 9/12 (Amex Back Dated to 1983)
Chase Sapphire Preferred $17K 11/12, Chase Freedom $7K 11/12
Discover More $750 11/12
CapitalOne Platinum Secured Card 2K 2/12 (Closed 12/12)
FICO: EQ = 804 EX = 802(Amex) TU = 801(Discover)

Did you apply in response to a pre-approved/selected offer? Or, did you just do a "cold" application?

Re: Discover Card

I can relate, Discover kept sending me invitations to apply. I was very reluctant, but i finally decided to apply. I never would have imagined i would get a credit line as high as $11,500. My credit scores was around 710, but i still never expected that. I was thinking the most would be $2500.00. I have to say i was very surprised with Discover.
