Talk me out of responding to the Discover pre-app.

[ Edited ]

Tell me how lousy their initial CLs can be, often just $1K. 

 

Tell me I should garden until my woeful BK drops off in 2014, if I'm still alive. 


 

Tell me I just have to wait 34 days and the temptation will be over, b/c the pre-approval offer expires on Nov. 30. 

 

AND Tell me I already have THREE new accts. in 2012 and not to tempt fate by going for a fourth! 


 

OK, no need to reply, those four points convinced me!


No apps/new accts since 2011

I will tell you none of those things! It is a great card! They have been generous with me 5490 - 10390 in a few years. Not as high as my others, but great nonetheless.

Wait until your last 30 days late passes the 12 month mark. Once you're in the 13th month since your last 30 days, go for it if your scores are up there.

You have three new accounts in 2012.  Do not tempt fate by going for a fourth.
