Re: Pre approved for discover it now?!!!

Part of me wants to say to you "what if it isn't there when you are out of the garden" and the other part of me wants to say "stay in the garden, you can do it!"

 

Listen to whichever part suits you best LOL

If it fits into your plans then by all means do it, if it doesn't and you have no use for it, don't let the pre-approval pull you out of the garden earlier then you wanted to. Credit is just a tool, don't let alter your plans just because it shows up.

Re: Pre approved for discover it now?!!!

I'd like it just because it's a prime and a reason to stick it to cap one.. I've wanted a discover ever since I was 18 and was never pre approved...it's been my goal,since rebuilding to be approved for one..I don't need it I want it...it'd most likely become my primary card and probably my highest limit. But as I said I'll be sticking to my guns and passing on it because I know I won't get approved.

Stay in the garden, the offer will probably still be there.  I have been receving pre-approved mailersfrom  Discover It for months.  Finally pulled the trigger tonight.  It was worth the wait.

I agree- stay I the garden. Who wants a toy limit? When in a few short months you can have a 'real' limit!
