Welcome to the forum
I would say they're about the same odds of approval

I agree with boomhower. They are really pushing the Discover It card right now. I seem to get a pre-approval notice from them once a week. I think their standards may be a bit lower than Chase although I have read on this forum that people have had great experiences with Chase on recon.

so i am trying to steer away from bad credit cards. so i just got approved for the Discover it card does anyone know if its harder to obtain the chase freedom card or the discover it card
Welcome to the forums!!!
IMO they are about the same, with Chase probably being a tad harder to get. What kind of CL did you get from Discover??

Congratulations!!! The Freedom is a tough nut to crack if you have a short credit history, but otherwise they are pretty much equivalent in underwriting standards.
