no I'd wait. Having two accounts with them already, I know they are tough.They dont like Bk's at all, no matter the status and they dont like inq's. imho, hold off on them for awhile and save an inq. fwiw, the Motiva is the "easier" of their lineup to get approved for. They will also offer the HSBC card as a counter sometimes...

Re: Should I apply Discover Card?

What about FICO score of 675 (or thereabout).
No BKs
3 cards currently - $5650 total limit, $1300 utilization
3 inquiries (on each credit report)
What else would Discover look for?
FEB '08 FAKOs: TU 628 | EX 650 | EQ 584
JAN'09 FAKOs TU 686 | EX 705 | EQ 664
EQ FICO: FEB '08 646 | APR '08 678 | SEP '08 679
