I had bad credit forever from when I was in college and even though I straightened up after all I could get was crap store credit cards. Then finally I got a discover card with a $13k limit!!
Do you think it's easier to get Discover cards if you don't have the best credit?
Since they're not as popular as Visa and Mastercard I'm guessing they give more wiggle room to people that apply to get them approved. if they're doing that it's a good move because it will help them stand out even though they're the underdog. I love them now that I have a credit card with a high credit limit!!!
