Odd Discover Reporting

 

As many of you know, I applied and did a BT for Discover in January. My first statement generated on 2/23 and it reported today to EQ. Well, it reported my balance but not the credit limit and went into "Other" not revolving.  Does this happen when you do a BT with Discover? In the Credit Line box it says N/A. What's also interesting is that, the date opened was 1/1/2012. I opened it later in the month...mid-January (not that I'm complaining). Also, last activity was 2/1/12 but statement generated on 2/23/12. Is something wrong? Do they report data based on 1st of each month? Any insight would be great.  Heck, if they don't put my CL I'll be happy....Note below:

Not sure exactly if they have reported wrong but if it benefits you I would overlook it......

Re: Odd Discover Reporting

Well this was in the alert info when the new account came in. I'm waiting for my other card to report a $0 balance before pulling a report. I just want to double check, but I wonder if they do this for BTs. Hmm...

Is this TL factored into your overall utilization???

Re: Odd Discover Reporting

I don't think so since there is no CL reporting notated on the alert. I'm not pulling a report until the other card reports. Generally, the CLs if a card has one appears on the alert. This did not.

That would be a big + if its not factoring in your overall utilization! Guess you'll have to wait and see!
