I applied for regular Discover student card on 5/23 was automatically denied but i was offer the secured card with deposit of 200.00 i had to reply by 5/29. So I accepted the offer I want to rebuild my credit and hopefully get unsecured Discover card in the future. I recieved an email 5/29 saying they need to verify information so i call the credit Analysit they review my application and says I was approved for secured card it will take up 14 days to processed everything. I had to send a copy of my bank statement and void check to draft funds. Credit Analysit was very nice and helpful and answer all my questions . The anaylist says they will review my account 12 months to see if i am eligilbe for unsecured if so i will recieved my 200.00 back. Just make sure I keep my account in good standing and payments up to date. I am so excited to get the DIscover secured card will help me my credit . They already draft 200.00 from my account on 6/4 The funds has cleared my account now i am waiting to recieved card. I wanted to share my story. hopefully more to come and good luck to everyone trying to get approved for Discover.
Congratulations! I went through the same thing a few months ago -- I applied for the unsecured Discover It student card, was denied and immediately offered the secured It version. I took the offer of course. Make sure that you enroll (or that you're already enrolled) in their double cashback program. I was able to enroll in it 2 days ago even though I have the secured version.
Congrats on the new card!
Two threads combined into one. Grats on your new card OP
Thank you very much. I hope everyone has luck getting approve.. I know Discover is hard card to get approved for. It really a big step for me and everyone who wants to established good credit in the future to be approved of the dream card. Good luck!
Thanks. I have contact Discover about their cash back bonus program to make they enroll me into the program . they say as of today 6/7 they have enroll me so I am all set. They told me when I get my card if i didn;t like the color I can change it. The card is silver. I guess it doesn't matter as long I have the account I am very happy. I am looking forward to getting it in my hands soon. Thanks. I am happy to see everyone went through like I did to get approve its really a blessing to all.
