Get Out Your Crystal Balls

Ok, no one knows for sure, this I know. However, do you think it is worth applying for a Discover It CC with a score around 665 (should be when lower utilization reports).

I have 1 unpaid CO from 5 years ago and 1 collection from the same time ago. From my research it seems to be a 50 / 50 proposition but those posts were from a while ago.

I am just on the fence of what to do.


Starting Score: 583 EQ, 612 EX, 569 TU
Current Score: 658 EQ, 648 EX, 618 TU
Goal Score: 720 EQ, 720 EX, 720 TU

Re: Get Out Your Crystal Balls

Take the shot after everything updates, it will most likely be a TU pull. Good luck Smiley Happy

"If there's a lack of money in your life, understand that feeling worried, envious, jealous, disappointed, discouraged, doubtful or fearful about money can never bring more money to you, because those feelings come from a lack of gratitude for the money you have."

"Reactions are powerful creators because they contain every element needed to manifest—they're a combination of thought, belief, and feeling in action. Positive reactions create more positive things, and negative reactions create more negative things. If you can respond to negative situations calmly and lightly, instead of with emotional turbulence, what happens next in your life will be so much better."

My brother got a $1,000 limit with a score of 668 in November, 2013 so it is definitely possible. The best of luck to you.

Re: Get Out Your Crystal Balls

TU?  On the site which I cannot name (google search credit pull database) it seems Discover pulls EQ or EX.  Man, I hope they do not pull TU.

Re: Get Out Your Crystal Balls

For me everything is done on TU, am in ID. Have seen quite a few TU pulls in approval comments around the forums lately.

I see more info needed 

INQ's in the last year? 

Other cards and limits and how long you've had?

UTL?

Before you app think...
Have you done your research of the CC?
Does it fit your spending?
Do you have a plan for the bonus w/o going into debt?
Can you afford the AF?
Do you know the cards benefits? Is it worth the HP?
