You keep talking about discover being 'tight with limits" when it isn't even true in your case. You opened a Discover More in 2012 with a 5.5k limit. That's higher than your AMEX BCP, closed Chase Freedom, current Chase Sapphire Preferred, a Barclaycard account you closed, and probably others. True, Discover didn't give you the high limits of FNBO or Associated, but it seems odd to single Discover out for "tightness" when Discover actually did better, limit wise, than around half your cards.
Its true your limit went from 5.5 k on Discover to 3k on your last. But within a bit over 1 year you opened and closed Discover 3 times! You never kept an account open long enough to get a substantial CLI (auto, soft pull or otherwise). The decreased limits are probably caused by that.
Anyway, perhaps Discover may be less likely to give large limits than other lenders. But these repeated insinuations that Discover gives only "toy limits" are simply false.
