Re: Discover more approvals

Anyone know if I can call and get the Discover IT card? Is it just an instant PC? Or do I have to wait?

Re: Discover more approvals

If your scores were > 650 I would reccomend you apply, but your < 650 score combined with the recent baddy is a recipe for a denial.

For Discover More?  Isn't it 640 + 1 year of clean revolving history?

Re: Discover more approvals

I was approved last month

CS was 708 on Experian

AAoA was right about 6 years

Limit $10,000

15 Mos. 0%

 

My highest limit at the time was $1,900 from merrick.  I had to call in and verify information because we just moved that weekend before applying.  Answered some questions, she said "what I can do right now is offer an approval at $10,000 if that is OK."  I didn't want to push my luck at the time and ask for more than that!

Never take credit personally

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; DCU Visa $10,000; Logix FCU $15,000; Citi Home Depot $8,800; Lowes $8,000; Care Credit $6,000; Penfed Platinum Sig $16,000; Barclay Arrival Plus WEMC $15,000; US Bank PLOC Overdraft $1,500; US Bank Perks+ Visa Signature $8,600; US Bank Edge Rewards Business $10,000; PenFed PLOC $5,000
