Congratz T2J !!!  I had some luck back in december(got the open roads card) with not so hot fico scores too. I think high 600's. There is hope for us non 700 club members!!


Yeah, they now have a card selector thing on their website where they ask you to estimate your credit rating.  One of the options is something like "Needs Improvement."  Before I saw this I never thought "Needs Improvement" was even an option with Discover!

Re: Just applied for and received Discover

Thanks for the kind words all.
 
For those that asked, below are my PFICO scores.
 
TU689, EX683, EQ680,
 
My actual Fico, if that is the product you get from EQ's Score Watch is 665, which is 15 points lower than it was last month. I have no idea what happened considereing my much lower utilization %age.
 
Best Regards

Does Discover still do double cycle billing? If so, yuck :-P .... has kept me from apping to them in the past. It's a nasty practice if you keep a balance...
Mostly, yes, they do. Some of their lower tier cards use average daily balance.

They don't do double-cycle billing on the Motiva, as it's set up specifically for those who want to carry balances. (That's what their entire rewards system is set up for. :smileywink: ) There's still double-cycle on the More, and I think on the others. Pretty clear indication to me that Discover encourages PIF'ing, or at least carrying comparatively low balances.

It's very useful to decide before app'ing if it will be a PIF card or a balance card.

Re: Just applied for and received Discover

I rec'd my More card with a single hard from EX.
 
Perhaps the CSR meant they would pull from any of the three CBs.  Who knows?
 
I was quite impressed recently when my Discover CSR promised me I would only get a soft inq while requesting a CLI under the condition that I did NOT want a hard inq.  She was right!
