Discover offer for 10.99% APR

Discover offer for 10.99% APR

Looking through my junk mail and saw an offer for Discover It with a 10.99% APR, 15mo 0%

Lots of good features, no penalty APR, one free late, 0 foreign exchange, etc.

Since this is a 0 AF card it looks pretty attractive!

Anyone know what sorts of CLs they give initially.

 

 


I have reestablished credit over the last couple years
so my moniker is, well, rather out of date.

Re: Discover offer for 10.99% APR

I say go for it.  I applied for IT last Friday and got my card Wednesday.  My credit is less than perfect with a FICO from Experian of 638, and I was approved for $2400.  It is my highest limit to date.  Furthermore, since my credit was not great I didn't get an attractive bonus of 0% for any amount of time and my APR is 22.9%  So if you can get it at those rates I say try it out, I'm still shocked I was approved and its my highest limit across all my cards.

Good question. I think we are still trying to figure out Discover's initial cl policy.

They do allow for cli's after 90 days which is nice and they will tell you if a hp is needed.

I started off at $2500, 3 mos later received an auto Cli to $3300 and last week received a Cli to $7300. Card was opened in Jan.

Re: Discover offer for 10.99% APR

I got my Discover in December at pretty much the same time as Amex. Discover gave me a CL of 2,5K and I used it heavily in the past and always PIF but no CLI so far. While Amex is now at 25K... so it is quite a lottery with them for starting limit Smiley Happy ...but card is very nice and customer service great...if not for CLI...LOL

Move the mouse over the cards for detailed view!

WOW, I've had mine for 5 years and I didn't know that you I could be increasing mine this quickly! I just got to 8k this year, but I've stayed at 2k for 4 out of the 5 years! LOL

 

Thanks Lexie for this input.. makes me realize that I need to be more organized and on the ball with asking for CLIs! Smiley Happy
