    Anyone apply for the DISCOVER It Card?

    I have the Discover it secured card. Got it about 4 months post discharge.

    It's a pretty solid card. They rotate cashback reward which is kind of annoying, but right now (for 3 months) they are giving 5% cashback on all gas purchases. Pretty nice.

    I honest don't use it much because my other cards give better cashback. Cap1 gives 1.5% on everything.

    I think it looks good on my report to have an open Discover card. They are a prime lender and other lender see that Discover approved me, so they are more likely to approve me as well. My report does not indicate that it is secured.

          I read somewhere that Discover will approve you, with a BK, after 2 years!

            There isn't a direct application. You have to first apply for the regular Discover it and be counter-offered a Discover it secured.

            I think I may have actually applied for the student Discover it but it isn't any different.

                I have an IT for (not secured)....discharged May 2013, got it in March. Like TX said, the rotating categories are a bit irritating, but it looks good on your report.

                  Just got approved for a discover it card. $12,500 credit limit. 0% for 14 months 15.99 after that. The BK just fell off our reports in July (7 years from filing chapter 13). Credit score jumped to 769 this month.
                  Be patient... there is life after BK!

                      I'm still in Ch13, but Discover is the only credit card on my credit card reported as "open", yet the filed a proof of claim, so I wonder if they will welcome me or blacklist me when I am post-discharge, which is another 4 years from now.

                        My BK was in August of 2010, so it just turned 4 years old. I did not BK Discover. I was just approved for an IT card with a $1500 credit line and 20% apr... which I am fine with, I have not paid a dime of interest since I started rebuilding my credit.

                        She did ask me about my BK, and I gave her a pretty generic answer.

                        $1500 is my lowest credit line (my highest is 6k with Arrival), but I am fine with it. Have to start somewhere.
