I’m 22 years old and am interested in switching from debit to credit, currently starting a new job tomorrow. I’ve never had one before or paid any loans, and I’ve applied for 2 cards so far (Paypal Mastercard & Discover It) since I’ve heard they were good beginner cards. With the Discover card, I immediately got this message just after submitting the form (not even able to input my routing/account number):
*Unfortunately, we are unable to approve your application at this time. In 7-10 days, you’ll get a letter from us explaining why.*
Was pretty surprised that it happened that suddenly so for anyone who’s experienced this, I was wondering if I can do something about this or what my backup plans should be if neither card works out.
Any help is appreciated.
