I applied on October 27th when I came home from work that night. They ended up pulling TU and at the time I had a score of 739 so I was approved with a decent CL for someone with my income (1.5k) at first I got worried they denied me but when I checked on Monday morning, I had seen that I have been approved and was ecstatic, when I called in to activate, I was going to ask for a bigger CL, but I decided to keep my mouth shut. But yeah, Discover can be a tough company to become a member, just show your credit is getting better or is decent and they will hopefully approve you. Keep in mind that I had a little bit over 6 months of history with one card and an income of 12,000. Just show Discover (or any other creditor) you are responsible, and in no time you will become a Discover member.
