So happy I bit the bullet and applied and was approved for a Discover It card!

[ Edited ]

It wasn't long ago my credit was horrid, high 500's(18 months ago) high utilization, lates. But since joining myfico.com, steadfastly getting my utilization down to 0-1% and on time payments for two years, I managed to get my ficos up to the high 690's. Rather than wait till the baddies fall off in a year and needing a rewards card now--I applied for a Discover IT card. I had to talk to a specialist becuase I'm self employed and the income stated (72k) But after the online app and calling the specialist, after a minute she said everything looks good and I was approved for 5k!

 

Happy becuase that's a good sign...my first credit limit over the highest card I have now, 2.4k, and even the 4k limit of the amex (lost that card due to too many lates 5 years ago)

 

I heard many of the top tier cards  like to see a credit limit of at least 5k, so after gardening for awhile I'll apply to those.

Congrats nice rebuild also

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?
