Just approved for Discover More (11.5k CL). What to do now?

[ Edited ]

Hey guys was just approved Discover More. After recieving three pre-approval letters within a month, and a lack of better judgement I decided to apply.

 

I started my credit card journey just three months ago. I was approved for a $500 card through local CU, and a Zync with $500 limit w/ autopay in May. My actual credit score is much lower than that now, but I haven't run a report since I was denied for a BCE in May at the same time I applied for Zync. The experian score I recieved was about 689 I think?

 

My question now is what do I do. Do I call up Discover now, and see what CL I was approved for, and try to get more? Or wait?

 

Should I try to apply for more cards? Or wait?

 

The card I really want is the Freedom, but didn't apply because I felt I had a better chance with Discover and I wanted to wait for $300 offer. You may consider my decision poor becuase I have a Chase Checking account... Maybe apply for Freedom as well? Can I finagle the $300 offer?

IT (11500 CL), Freedom (5000 CL), Zync (500 CL), PFCU (500 CL)

Starting Score: 699 EQ (4/11/12)
Current Score: 761 EQ (8/15/12)
Goal Score: 800+ EQ

Wonder if I can get this card changed to the Discover IT?

 

Kind of worried about calling up because I don't want them to lower my CL LOL...
