You mind sharing a bit more about your credit profile? I have 2 inqs. right now (09/12 and 01/13), AAoA is 4 years, and just 3 baddies (2 student loan collections from '07/08ish, and an auto loan late payment in '07 which is reporting wrong), and 9% util as of 01/13, which is now down to 3% (I PIF every month anyways). I don't see any pre-approvals on their website, so it makes me hesitant to apply...

Re: Pulled the trigger, Discover IT

If you look back over the Discover approval threads you will notice my continual disbelief at these CLs. This thread will continue that trend. I am amazed at their generosity and I am seriously considering getting in while they are so generous. I need to pay my balances down before my next statement date to show low util, but then I might go for this thing.

Congrats, Shogun!

Re: Pulled the trigger, Discover IT

congratsSmiley Happy

Before you app think...
Have you done your research of the CC?
Does it fit your spending?
Do you have a plan for the bonus w/o going into debt?
Can you afford the AF?
Do you know the cards benefits? Is it worth the HP?

Re: Pulled the trigger, Discover IT

I want a Discover so bad but they would't even approve me for a student card when I tried 2 months ago Smiley Sad

 

I PIF and have no other debts, not even student loans (woo hoo!!!) so I really dont understand why they hate me Smiley Tongue

Re: Pulled the trigger, Discover IT

What other cards do you have, snowsurf? A lack of credit history could be hurting you, since you have what we call a thin file and lenders won't be able to determine how well you have manged credit in the past. This is a major indicator of future credit performance, and is generally helpful for getting new credit cards.
