I'm probably about 7-8 months out from a mortgage app and should probably be gardening, but I decided to pull the trigger on Discover to see if I would be approved. Instant approval of $8500!!! Many say that Discover is conservative, but I believe it is a YMMV situation. It looks like that limit is just above the average for my 3 highest limits (NFCU and NavChek both at $10K and Barclays at $4500). Did I mention that I burned Discover for more than $10K with a chargeoff 7 years ago? Feeling lucky.
After seeing on here that Discover was offering a secured 'it' card, I decided to apply as I like the cashback offers, purchase/travel coverages, and my parents have always had good luck with their customer service. I didn't think I'd get an unsecured one, but I knew you had to apply, get denied, get offered the secured one, etc. so I filled out the app a few days ago. Well, this morning they called and left a VM asking me to call back, and when I did, they offered me an unsecured card! I was pleasantly surprised to say the least! It's a smaller limit ($1400), and a higher APR (22% I think she said) - but i won't carry much of a balance to rack that up. I'm just looking at it as a foot in the door with them to build a good history. I don't know who they pulled, and I honestly don't know my scores right now (I guess I'll find out since they show your TU FICO =) - but I've still got old collections & stuff I'm trying to sort out that are showing. I do have a SDFCU secured card w/ $3500 limit that I carry some balance on and always pay way more than the minimum on, a car loan that's about a year old (and previous ones going back farther), etc. - so my current stuff is all positive. Anyway, not a bad start to 2014 - some signs of progress in financial recovery
Hey just , called to request a CLI on my Discover It card and the representative told me it would be a hard pull on my credit report ? Is that right ????? I've had the card for 3 months at 1k and when I got the card they told me it would be 3 month before they would consider a CLI. I'm confused ....never happens with capital one or amazon , its always a soft pull. Anyone else experience this ?
