Re: impulse.

Also bear in mind that this is a DISCOVER card.  For some of us, this is a difficult card to acquire.  I cant get one right now and I had one way back in college that I screwed up.  That one was paid off by my mom.  Please, keep this card clean.  In all seriousness.

I am glad you mentioned this actually. There is so much talk about how to treat your Amex, but do similar rules apply to Discover?  I am waiting to get mine in the mail and I don't carry a balance on any of my cards unless one accidentally reports before I am able to PIF, but I still want to treat this badboy with as much care as possible. Anything that they look for? Or frown upon?

Re: impulse.

I know this.  I applied for one last year and what they offered me was the HSBC Direct Rewards (Discover Network) card with a 1400 dollar limit which is essentially a "poor man's" Discover card.  I took it since I am credit rebuilding mode.

Hey, I would have taken it, too!  It sounds much better than a lot of the rebuilder cards that are out there, so having that one, is great!
