Ouch! I've been lucky, whenever they have done a mid cycle update I've had a fairly low balance. Any reason why they did one on you? CLI Button?

I called in for a CLI and got declined, tryed online and it said im not eligible at this time. That shouldnt mean report again.

SIMILAR PROBLEM HERE! I don't like how Discover reports at all! I had already paid my balance down to zero. After the fact...it reported on my CR during mid cycle! Luckily I had only a 10 dollar balance but it was 0 by the time they reported my previous balance...LOL. And get this! There was NO statement generated for the month b/c I had a ZERO balance..WTH Discover?? Most CCCs generate statements even if there is no balance only if you've had activity for the period...why is Discover different?

The truth is out there...

Don't they have to legally generate a statement if you had activity? Say I run 2k through card and when statement was about to cut I just login and pay in full (say im in airport and just login on mobile app). When I get statement in mail/email I notice that I had a charge for $100 that wasn't mine.

Don't you need a statement to check these things? (I know with bank statements you typically have 30 days after you receive statement to contest a charge). When would this period start if u never receive a statement?

Lol this seems like good advice - the fact that Disc mid cycle reports.

We should complain to the CFPB. :-)

Mid cycle reporting paired with .25% CB until $3000 spend makes this card seem lame. XD

I love Discover as well, but they do have some shady practices. It does make me reconsider using their card extensively.

Well, I'm not as observant about the mid-cycle reporting part  :smileyembarrassed:

 

However, it was about a month after I was declined for a CLI that they called and offered me most of what I requested....    over half anyway.

 

Just thought I'd share the info.  It was also close to maxed at the time (0% that I use the omph out of...).
