I was declined for a discover it card, reasons being:

% of balance to credit limit too high on revolving accounts

Length of time accounts have been established

Proportion of loan balances to loan amounts is too high

 

What is the best course of action to get an approval?

What are discovers requirements?

What is the best course of action to get an approval? The red reason above is the real one, pay down your balances you want 1 card reporting 1 to 9 percent of its individual CL reporting to the CRA and the rest at 0.

What are discovers requirements? They vary from person to person nothing is set in stone..

Discover is not really known for recon success, you can attempt it since you have already taken the HP but if its no then I would just get your CRs in order then re apply.

+1

 

Always make sure your reports are ideal before an app. It doesn't matter what the balance is if it is reporting something different.

+2 in light of the balances not yet updated on your CRs.... The recon will not be successful at this point.

      So when I was 18, I had a bank account with Wells Fargo for school, that my Grant went into. I was young and careless, and I spent beyond my means. Overdrafting several times. When I stopped going to school I never made another payment and now I'm stuck. I have this Wells fargo account in collections, it's been that way for 4 years, I have a Victoria's secret account that I've made a payment on in the past but can't find the information for seeing as I've moved since that's been there for 4 years as well, and as of 2013 I've got a 12k medical bill from being sent to the hospital and held there to see how I reacted. They didn't do anything at all for me or to me so I don't know why it was so much, but I didn't have insurance then, so it ended up being high. However, I just signed up for insurance, is there anyway to use that to cover the past expense? Helppp I really want to buy the house I'm currently renting but I need the credit to do so, and I'd like the opportunity to go back to school as well...I'm 21 years old now, what do I do?

      Hello All,
       
      As is said by many, this site is truly a godsend. I cannot commend you all enough for taking the time out of your schedules to assist people with rebuilding and understanding their credit. Thank you so much.
       
      I've been reading for awhile now and thought i'd take a stab at my first post in hopes of reaffirming the direction I think i should head. I get a bit overwhelmed when trying to figure out where to start.
       
      1.) I've opted out
      2.) I've sent letters to all CRA to remove old address.
       
      Below i've put on an excel spreadsheet the baddies on my account. I'm really hoping its possible to get some of these removed as certain searches on this site have given me less hope. I am currently in the middle of a streamline refinance of my home so I assume thats why the mortgage is listed twice below.
       
      My question is where is the smartest place to begin after the address situation is taken care of. I was assuming i would begin by calling the collection account for Express and demand a PTD, but I'm not sure if thats the best place to start.
       
      Theres also the credit one issue, i assume its in collections with them but I haven't received any calls.
       
      I also have the mortgage late issue which I'm not sure how to approach. I am current now but in 2012 had a few 30 and 60 days.
       
      Anyway, any help or direction would be great. I hope I've read up enough to post this, if not feel free to direct on something i should follow back up on. Thanks again everyone!

      Say what you want about Discover, but this is a solid rebuilding option that starts at $200.
