Orchard Bank Discover Card offer. Is It a Good Deal?

Received a CC offer from Orchard bank today and here are some of the highlights: 14.99 apr Typical 21.9apr for penalties 55 to start 74 yearly afterwards 300 limit to start(technically 245 for the first month) Should I toss it? Does Discover/Orchard give generous CLI's? Or can I find a better deal on my own? Thanx for the responses.

Re: Orchard Bank Discover Card offer. Is It a Good Deal?

With a 733 EQ FICO, you shouldn't even be considering that offer IMHO.

Obviously your credit profile is much more than scores.. but that is a sub-prime card aimed at people with little or no history (or bad history) who are typically in the 500's or maybe just cracked 600.  If you have income and a relatively decent history (a couple of older baddies are okay), you should be getting "normal" cards with low or no AF and a usable credit line.

 

All IMHO of course!  Good luck!

Thanks for the reply. Just wanted to know if it would have been worth the wild to put up with the crap limit. My transunion scrore got me a Visa CC through my Credit Union with the following: 1000 limit 18.9apr for any penalties 10.9 apr to start No annual fees
