Finally, my very own Blue

Postby MoMo » Sun Feb 10, 2013 11:28 am

I had my eyes on this card for quite sometime. I was crushed the first time I got denied. When I received my letter, it said;

-the my debt to income ratio was high at around 47%, (so I paid it all off)
-credit not establish long, (about 2 years)
-account not paid as agree, (my only negative, but it is 6 years old)
-my credit score was I think 732 at the time, 1 negative (mentioned above) and everything else was in the clear.

So, yesterday I decided reapply and...!!!

Also, I tried my luck with the new Discover It as well...

I'm really excited as I worked really hard to clear my report for the last 7 years and the only credit card I had was a secured one by Wells Fargo. Here's to a new year of credit responsibility!!!

Congratulations to you on both approvals!!! That's terrific, great job!

I've never seen that Discover instant approval screen personally before, so thanks for sharing what it looks like. I've gotten 3 of their cards in the last year but none were instant. So you've got me beat.

Well, I don't plan on getting any new credit/loans for the rest of the year or next for that matter, now that I received both the Discover and American Express which was what I really wanted. So 15-30 points was worth it in my opinion.
