I think the Discover IT card has been the best card that I've had for the first year. I started at $1,400 SL a year ago. A year later, after my 12th statement cut, I requested a CLI and went from $9,900 to $14,900! So in summary of the first year, I've gone from $1,400 to $14,900 and received my double cashback bonus on the first year of almost $700. Get this card especially if you are rebuilding if you can!
That's nice credit limit increases for one year. How many increases did you have in the year? How many were auto CLI and how many were manual requests? So hoping my card grow as well as yours.
The first CLI approval was after the third statement cut. I tried every month after the first one. I didn't always get one, and the first couple were for $500. Then they started jumping to 1-2k. The last for 5k was a nice one for me though. I'm close to 45k across the board and would like to hit 50k+ eventually. I have only done SP for my CLI's too.
Thanks for the info! Useful data points for those of us who are new to Discover.
Wow! Very nice increase and you've got a great CL! Like you said, if you can get in with Discover with some rebuilding to do, this card is tops! Enjoy your card even more!
