Mid cycle reporting paired with .25% CB until $3000 spend makes this card seem lame. XD



It's a subprime approval, until the recent changes circa June from other lenders it was a reasonable card I think.  Now I have to agree I don't know if it really makes any sense, that may be a part of the reason Discover is reportedly phasing it out in favor of the IT?  Wouldn't surprise me if the reward structure changes a little too.

 

AFAIK there's nothing illegal with reporting mid-cycle, a non-trivial number of lenders do this for various reasons.  I don't know about that statement generation bit though, that does seem unique to them and it's not exactly a huge cost savings not to generate an electronic statement at least.  I think most people have gone paperless at this point on their credit cards?

Re: Thank you Discover....

I just think that it is funny that lenders always mid cycle update when you have a balance, but if you pay off a large balance and request a mid cycle update to report a $0 balance, the answer is always "no."

Re: Thank you Discover....

Discover didn't even report for me yet for August! Smiley Mad  They usually report a day or two after my billing statement closes like clock work, and here it is the 7th of October and they still haven't reported.  SMH!
