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.

In My Wallet:
Citi Forward (12/2010) | Citi Dividend (05/2011) | Chase Freedom (11/2011) | GECRB/PayPal (05/2012)
Discover it (07/2012) | AMEX BCP (09/2012) | TD/Target REDCard (10/2012) | Chase Ink Classic (11/2012)
BofA BBR (04/2013) | FNBO/Overstock.com (02/2014) | Barclaycard Arrival (04/2014) | FIA/Fidelity AMEX (04/2014)

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
Late Payment: 0 / Collections: 0
AAOA: 6.3 Years

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.

Unsecured Credit: Amex BCP $24,900; Chase Sapphire Preferred $24,200; Discover It $12,500; Chase Ink Cash $15,000; Chase Slate $13,500; Citi TYP $12,900; Amex SPG Biz $3,000; US Bank Platinum $8,600; DCU Visa $10,000; Logix FCU $15,000; Citi Home Depot $8,800; Lowes $5,000; Care Credit $6,000; Penfed Platinum Sig $16,000; Barclay Arrival Plus WEMC $5,000; Bank of America World Points Business Visa $8,000; US Bank PLOC Overdraft $1,500; US Bank Edge Rewards Business $10,000; PenFed PLOC $5,000
