Pulled the trigger, Discover IT

     After surfing the boards, I decided to see if Discover had any pre-approvals for me.  Went to the website, put in my info and got my first pre-approval in over a decade.  I debated for a minute, then figure, why not.  I app'd and got an approval, but there was a problem with the site and I couldn't register.  I called CS and talked to a CSR out of Salt Lake City Utah.   She said it looks like you've been approved for a Discover It with a CL of $5500.   My next highest CL is my Barclay NFL at $2500 so this more than doubled it!

Re: Pulled the trigger, Discover IT

Congrats. This is one of 3 cards that I would really like to have, but I am not sure that I will be approved yet, so I am going to wait a few more months at least.
