Quick Answer: What Does Your Credit Score Need To Be To Get A Discover Card?

There aren’t any Discover cards that flat-out require excellent credit, currently.

But we recommend a score of at least 700, which is toward the top of the good range, for the cards that require good credit for approval.

So most Discover cards may be a tough get for the average person, who has a credit score of 669.

Can I get a credit card with a 650 credit score?

Even if your FICO credit score is only 650, you can still qualify for a credit card that charges no annual fee and comes with reasonable interest rates.

How good is a 650 credit score?

A 650 FICO score is generally considered to be Fair. If you have a 650 credit score, you may still be denied some loans and credit cards — and you may be forced to pay higher interest rates for the ones you are approved for. You need at least a 700 score to have Good credit — but 650 isn’t considered Poor either.
