Thanks

Re: Score needed for Discover IT Card?

I would say 660 at least no recent baddies or unpaid COs. Some payment history with a CC at least 6 months. YMMV of course.

All other things being good, that score should qualify her as long as she has a decent profile with no recent baddies.

From the Discover website, it's pretty much IT or nothing!  The IT card has replaced the More card, the only other personal card would be the IT for students.  There are several business cards offered, but that's about IT! Smiley Happy 

 

While they formerly had other cards that customers still hold, I don't think anything else is available to apply for, at least not from their website.

They also have a "Miles by Discover" credit card you can apply for on their website. Its located on the very bottom of their website under "credit cards". Its not very prominent probably because they're pushing their IT product.

I believe if you call in and apply over the phone, you can apply for the Discover More card. Also make sure to ask for the $200 cash back welcome bonus after spending $1500 in first three months. And then if you really wanted the IT card, you can PC the More card to the IT card.

That's what I did in January. Smiley Happy
