They claim you can apply without affecting your credit score, so I did and was pre-approved pending employment and income verification. So I accept and allow them to post a hard inquiry because I know I can verify my employment and income reported. They pulled 2 hard inquiries! After forwarding them proof of income, proof of employment and last years tax returns I hear nothing for 1 week after being told I would hear within 48 hours, I follow up with them and they tell me they cannot do my loan. Their reason given was due to my current monthly obligations. I have a 90 day personal loan for $5000 that is a 1 time payment which they included in my monthly obligation. My credit score is 676...

Hi. Bear with me through my story to explain why I will never use a Discover product again (I will be cancelling my card soon). I am a soon-to-be college graduate. I just accepted a job offer for 72.5k with a 10k signing bonus. Then my car broke down and needed an engine swap. The signing bonus wouldn't come in until a month after I signed (three weeks after my car broke down). But I need my car to get to class. So I applied for a loan. I was approved initially but they needed to confirm my job. So, I uploaded my offer letter and received an email stating that I should wait up to 2 business days for them to call back with more information. I waited 4 business days and no call. I... Read More
This is the worst company ever. I received a statement in May after I paid Discover $6400.00, which was the payoff balance and 3 months later I received another bill from Discover with a balance of $515.90. I truly believe, Discover has lost it. They are only interested in keeping people in bondage. If you are vacillating whether to obtain a loan from discover, please do not. It is not worth the headache.
I had an excellent experience with Discover Loans. I'd been receiving the pre-approved letters for awhile but only recently decided to contact them to see what they could offer - and I was pleasantly surprised how easy the process was. I received a better rate than I expected and the application was very straightforward. I'd done a Prosper loan in the past, which was also relatively straightforward, and my experience with Discover was slightly better in terms of simplicity in the process, but both were great. I'm not certain why others have had negative experiences, but mine was excellent (I don't have perfect credit, but I've never had a late payment and have a long credit history, so... Read More
Quick and easy process auto-pay and no surprises works good for me
I was quickly approved for a loan that I will be using to consolidate of a couple of credit cards. Process went very smoothly! I will be able to make one payment at a much lower interest rate now! Very happy with that. For those that are not getting approved, it is not the company....it is more than likely your credit history. If you are someone who pays your bills on time and have a decent income to debt ratio you should be just fine. If you have a crappy credit score.....good luck.
