Credit score needed for Discover card balance transfer?

Postby Hanuko » Sun Feb 27, 2011 4:52 pm

I was looking at the Discover balance transfer offer that I found here:

Are the credit requirements tough to meet? Do you think I'll get approved with a 689 credit score?

Please answer as soon as possible as that offer expires tomorrow.

Thanks in advance!

Getting approved with a 689 is unlikely. From what I have seen on this forum the credit score needed to be approved for a Discover card is around 700 and up. Everyone thinks American Express is the hardest to qualify for but I don't agree with that. You may want to try a different issuer with your current credit score.
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
