When does Discover report to the credit bureaus?

Postby MemberSince99 » Tue May 29, 2012 4:13 pm

When did your More report to the credit reporting agencies? I got mine over a month ago, first statement posted about 3 weeks ago but nothing on the CRAs yet. About how long does it take for it to show up, does anyone know?

You know that's actually kind of weird. It should've reported by the first of May if you got it in April. My BofA card reported only 3 days after opening the account!

Wow. Mine still hasn't reported. I don't know maybe that's good for now so I don't freak Amex out. But it would be nice to have the tradeline report....

Same here. With both Discovers I had in the past it took about 2 to 3 months for them to report, and the new one I just got isn't reporting and will likely report by February would be my guess at the latest.

It can take a while with Discover. On the plus side if you transfer a balance that you pay off pretty quickly, it's effectively invisible then if you know about this.

I'm kind of wondering if I should apply for another card before or after it posts to my credit report. I would assume after, since I don't have a lot of available credit compared to my income.

Probably best to do it after it reports. I mean, having a new account report will have a small negative effect by lowering your average age of account, but in your situation having a new credit limit report will more than likely have enough positive effect to cancel the negative out and then some.
