Discover Requirements

I was wondering if I had a chance of getting approved for a Discover Card.

 

My reports are CLEAN except for TWO medical collections from October of 2011.  I've attempted to PFD but haven't gotten any response yet (I gave them a month to respond), and the amount are $450 and $150.  So I can easily pay them. 

 

If I tried for a Discover, would I be able to explain these?

 

My Transunion doesn't report them, and my Experian only reports the larger collection, while Equifax reports both.

 

 

Thanks!

09/2013: TU FICO 692, EQ FICO 698, EX PLUS 709. No apps until December 2014!

Re: Discover Requirements

Discover either pulls EQ or TU. Since the amount is small a simple phone call should do the trick.

This is a hard one

 

As discover pulls exquifax or transuion so it's hard because because 683 and 616 is not a great comfort level to app discover . Personally I would wait until you hear back with the PFD before apping 

 

 

Current Score: 771 - 11/21/2012/ Amex Pull

I agree with this.  Even if you did get approved it would likely be a small limit.  Work on getting those collections off and then make the jump.

Re: Discover Requirements

I applied last week for a Discover which was approved with a $5,000 limit.  I have a judgment which I have not been able to settle from Chase Bank credit card from 6 years ago.  I explained to the representative about the situation and was still approved.
