You can check your Discover it® Secured credit card status online or by phone: 1-800-347-2683. You’ll need to provide at least your Social Security number (SSN) to help Discover locate your application. And your status will be one of three things: approved, denied or pending. We’ll walk you through the full process for each method below.
Here’s how to check your Discover Secured Credit Card status:
1. Online: Visit Discover’s “Check Status” page, and enter your SSN and zip code in the provided fields. Click “continue,” and Discover will take you to a page listing the status of any applications you’ve made.
2. By phone: Call Discover customer service at 1-800-347-2683 and navigate the menu until you hear “check the status of a pending application”. Currently, you want to press “#” and then “4,” but that could change. After providing your first and last name, SSN and zip code, you’ll be able to hear your application status.
These instructions apply to any Discover credit card, not just Discover it Secured. And if you find out that you’ve been rejected, you can also call Discover and ask for reconsideration. But this is unlikely to work unless there’s been an important change related to Discover’s stated reason for rejecting you.
