I agree, its going to be a small limit but you should get approved.  May get real lucky and get the Discover version, but limit will most likely be $800 or less.

You just apply, if you qualify for the discover you get it.  Otherwise you just get the store card.

Thanks Simi...

 

Now should I apply for this or the Barclays Rewards card? I see you have both? What are your thoughts with my current trans file?

Aren't you supposed to be gardening?

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?
