Hey, I came out of the garden and app'd 2 cards, one was Navy Fed Platinum. Ive been wanting to build with Navy so I figured Id throw a few balances I was going to PIF just to throw some stuff their way. 0% intrest 12 months and no balance transfer fee on a ne 15k card.. Anyway I also figured I would app for Disco. They approved me for 1k... I have an Amex @ 16.5k a Citi @ 15.5k and now This Navy @15k. I feel like telling Discover thanks but no thanks. Whats your guys thoughts? Will it still show as an account on my History?
The account and inquiry will show up.
With Discover, it is all about the offers. Did you get cashback match 1st year? If so, 10% on groceries (now), gas (Q2) and restaurants (Q3) can't be matched anywhere.
I believe that I got the cash match, I cant find it though in the documentation that came with the card. There also appears to be 0% intro APR on it.
Congrats on your approval !!!!!
Discover is a keeper card with SP CLI requests. Don't close it.
As @FinStar eluded egos certainly get hurt with discover and I am one of those.. Although my scores are in the 800's and have credit cards with limits up to 50k and average around 20kish Discover gave me a 5k approval last time. Does it suck yep sure does I just accept I still am not their target audience and use them for their double cashback on 5% cats only. Card is up to 10.5k now through combination, but still very low to others with what I wonder how they got say a 12k instant approval by discover, but it is just how they work. I haven't got a CLI going on 6 months now either and it truely makes me mad, but i it is just business to them and they know I won't use much of the CL that I already have when approved and now they SP me and see what kinda available credit I have and must not think I need more as the risk isn't worth the small reward to them is how i see it. Just business although they certainly do raise my blood pressure trying to figure them out
Turns out the congrats was a bit early, I took Aladdinn22 's advice and walked out with a rescinded offer by discover and an account review on my other card for "potential" fraud... So theres that, new guy looking to impress the Boss? He flipped the script on me when I asked about increasing the credit limit before I activated the card... Im so freaking p******** right now. I moght close my other even if they dont. On the bright side, I got an Amex gold offer with 50 k points on 2 k spend in 3 months.... so I dont know what the heck to do
