No magic score but I recommend 650 or above, if not closer to 700+

Also, the oft repeated suggestion for AMEX is 12 months of history on another card.

With Discover the better you score better your odds but they are such an odd duck that there are people with lower scores, thin files or just out of bk who score really great limits while there are some with well established files and score are lucky to just get in.
