I just got my first Discover, so Idk how they are with CLIs, but I have both a Paypal MC (same as Ebay MC) and the Walmart Disc... and GECRB can be great with clis every four months... so I bet you can build those up in the next 6 months to a year to prob a couple thousand each. Just NEVER miss a payment :-)
