Love it! I'm a senior in college.

So when I applied for this card, my score was near the 700's and I was approved for a $1000 CL over the phone (October 2016). It is 6 months later (April 2017) and I recieved a $1000 increase in my credit line. Now I am at a $2000 credit line. The cash back rewards are great. I reccommend this card to everyone.

It's my first credit card and I wasn't expecting to get approved because I had no credit history at all. I had recently purchased a car and thought I'd use it for gas but it has been so much help for small emergencies. I was approved a $500 credit limit and I can't really complain. I pay it well before it's due because it's best not to spend money you don't have. After seeing most of the reviews I'm definitely wishing that I was approved a higher credit limit but I'll have to see how to request it. Even if I don't get approved the credit line increase , it's still a great card to have. My credit score has been going up when I don't use more than the recommended 10%.

First card, only card
JojoBisous Cardholder

I was approved with absolutely zero credit history for CL 1750, and after 5 months of paying my full balance I was bumped up to CL 2000. I'm 10 months in and it's still my only card, and I love it.

The BEST Credit Card in my wallet
truth401 Cardholder

You need a good score to get a discover card so don't think the a Fico of 640 or 650 is going to get you one and Credit Karma is always 20 points or more higher than your real score. Their Customer Service is the BEST in the Credit Card industry and thier reward are phenominal!
