Discover credit card application status?

Postby Faygo » Sun Feb 13, 2011 3:33 am

I applied for a Discover card and the screen said my application was pending review. How can I check the application status and is this a bad sign? Will it mean I am likely to get my application denied because an instant approval wasn't given?

I had that happen about a week ago with my online application for an American Express card. I did get approved but the update took a while and your Discover card's application status I doubt will change until a live person has evaluated it.

You can check a Discover card application status using this link-

When a credit card is pending approval most will make a decision within a few days. If in doubt you can always call customer support directly and find out what's up with it at 1-800-DISCOVER.
Disclosure: I am a moderator/paid staff of this site, which does have advertising relationships with some credit cards that are discussed and linked to. Regardless, anything I say is my honest opinion.

Current Cards:
American Express: Blue Cash, Simply Cash Bank of America: WorldPoints Platinum Plus Chase: Amazon, British Airways, Cash Plus Rewards, Freedom, Ink Cash Citi: Thank You Premier, Dividend Platinum Select Discover: More
Primary Everyday Card: American Express Blue Cash
Primary Travel Card: Chase Sapphire Preferred

FYI I applied for the More credit card and didnt get instant approval but I called after and she was able to speed things along. Give them a call if you think you might be denied and you might be able to talk them into approving you!!
