Re: Discover More

716 EQ at the time of application. Approved for $1,500 instantly. My highest limit until Chase Freedom came into my life. Lol.

The truth is out there...
FICO scores: 764 (EQ) 732 (EX) 757 (TU) 9/14 | Goal score: 750+ (all 3)
Tradelines: Capital One QS NPSL (5.0k) | Discover IT (6.0k) | Walmart Mastercard (5.0k) | Chase Freedom NPSL (7.3k) | Citi Simplicity (9.3k)

I was sent pre-approvals weekly for a few months. I finally gave in and applied.

I had three Amex cards and a secured Cap1 card at the time of application.

It took a 15 minute phone interview and I was only approved for a 750 CL.

I already had the HP from EQ so I accepted the low CL.

The customer Service was so nice I could not turn down the card.

 

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)

DAMN! 800 FICO and only approved for $750? Did they give you a reason as to why the limit was so low?

Re: Discover More

Mustangfrank, I'm really surprised at your low limit on the card...  At least it will grow with you but still surprised nevertheless.

Re: Discover More

The paperwork I received from Discover said my score was 699. I called to recon because I was too anxious to wait for an answer. I was approved for 13K!! I had their card in 1997 but was closed for nonuse which I assume the reason for my high CL.

Whoa!!! 13k is an excellent initial credit limit for Discover.

Re: Discover More

I just noticed Discover got rid of the credit score tracker...I was going to enroll today too. Damn.

I read from last week that Discover is paying $214 mil for court fines and stuff for "misleading" users to register for the ScoreTracker. Looks like they will hold on to it for a while to make some changes, or they will simply drop it.

 

Anyway, back to the original topic: I got approved for $1000 with 3.99 APR. Got 7-10 message. Called Analyst and talked to about 15 minutes. Finally he said "it looks like you're rebuilding your credit, right?" I said yes. Then he gave me $1000. That was Oct 2012. Since then I've been using it a lot by putting 2-3K through it already and paid like 5 times. Have not seen an Auto yet. Also I tried calling numerous numbers to ask for CLI but received message "You have to wait 6 months".

 

I would like to hear from folks who receive auto CLI from Discover before 6th month. Thanks
