Chances of Discover Secured?

So when my BK7 is discharged could I get a Discover Secured card even though they were included in the bk7?

They may not let you back in for a bit, but they will.

It may take up to a yr. If Cap 1 wasnt burned. Give the pre qual a check 30-60 days after DC and your scores might get a score boost. Good Luck!

Re: Chances of Discover Secured?

And your point is? Yes some do get a card sooner. Mostly because they cant wait and need a card yesterday. I've been saying it on here for over 3 yrs. It is best to wait after DC and the score rebound after being legally out of debt. Which in turn could lead to a higher SL. Your $300 could have been higher of you waited it out after DC. Every single move I made after filing and learning on here was to wait after DC I did. And it worked. My lowest and 1st approval was $2500 with the Plat. Highest 2 years later were the 3 Cap1's below all at $10,000. Every move I made I researched on here over and over. I didn't go 10 and O from a lucky streak. So this is why I keep repeating myself to wait it out. Some wont listen which is fine. But why shoot yourself in the foot. Start higher which leads to higher SL's. Or Start low and lower it will be for in the same timeframe. Good things come to those who wait I say.
