Holy Fico

[ Edited ]

So I just received my Discover It card in the mail. It came in fancy packaging and I like the look and feel of the actual card, although it does seem a little flimsy. The thing that shocked me was that Discover pulled my Fico from Equifax and it had me at 768! When I apped for the card, myfico here on Experian said my score was 719! What a big difference! Now I'm thinking I could probably get the freedom and bce for sure....

 

Also, my APR for the Discover is 18.99%. The range on their website is 10.99-22.99 so it's kind of high. My Citi card I got 13.99% which is the lowest on their website so I'm pleased about that. I should get that card in a few days :smileyvery-happy:

BoA 123 $2.5k (11/12) // Discover It $3.9k (7/13) // Citi Forward Student $3.8k (7/13) // Chase Freedom 5k (12/13) // Amex Blue Cash 6k (1/15)

Starting Score: No Credit History (11/12)
Current Score: MyFico 761
Goal Score: 800+

Guess I'm showing my age....

Re: Holy Fico

Freedom is not CS driven. Chase really likes rev cr card history. You may get approved cause you are +6 mos.
also, I want to remind you that once these cc's post, your CS will drop some - so if you are thinking about apping and don't mind the inq...go for it.

Thanks guys! You think they would accept me espicially since I just apped for 2 new cards + a cli? Also, I got an "you've been selected to apply" mail from Amex for their green card. Don't think it's any special offer or pre-approval or anything right?

Re: Holy Fico

IMO, Chase is more inq/new acct sensitive. I'd hate for your approval to be a $500 CL with HP's required to obtain a nice CL.

Re: Holy Fico

Actually I just realized the score used here comes from equifax as well....so why the HUGE difference in scores from the same report?? 719 on here vs 768 pulled by Discover??
