In the current economic conditions dont expect too much from any card. Keep your expectations low so you wont be disappointed.

Don't expect a huge CL with Discover.:smileywink:

What are your two FICO scores? Also, apping for any credit before shopping for a house can make some potential lenders nervous. The same goes for moving around balances.

Credit Profile -
FICO 08 Scores (11-08-2014): EQ 818, EX 817, TU 822
All three scores were 850. Lost points for not having an open installment TL. So, BE WARNED!!!!!
Credit History: 26+ years ~ AAoA: 12 years ~ Util: 1% ~ Inqs: EX 1

here's my thoghts

 

Movita pay five months of interest to one month back? paying to get "rewarded?

with open road the 5% was limited $60 return each year your requied spend $100/month on gas and auto to get the full $60.

 

miles isn't to  bad  the double points first $2k so 4,000 exlcsive of  double points earned from shopdiscover

 

More the 5% offers are caped to any where  from $200 t0 $800, which downside to the card

People say "Only apply for credit you NEED"

I say "apply for credit you have PRATICAL use of"

I don't have AMEX card because I don't want a card that suffers from PMS
