What Should I Do?????

Hello,

 

I received my first college card back in March with a low CL of 300. In Aug it will be sixth month since i had the card. I have no balance, PIF, since i had the card. Should I apply for another credit card or ask for a CLI? The card is with US Bank.

 

Im a AU on my mother Discover, should i try to get my on student discover?

 

What options do you think i should do? I really want another cc.

 

Thanks in advance for your advice and thoughts!

I would ask for a CLI after 7 months with US Bank.    Then I would wait 3 more months and apply for the next card. Who did you have in mind for next card?

The cash back rewards on Discover student card would be my first choice.

Is discover student card hard to get? I was also thinking about get a CC from my credit union.

I would try the credit union first, since you are a member.   You might try them now.
