What does her TU report look like in terms of score, and inquiries? Is she a member of any credit union?

 

I think she has a good chance of getting at least three new cards. Barclays, another capitalone card (tripple pull) and a GE card. If she lives near a walmart, the walmart card could be a great option for GE otherwise, paypal or a store card could work as well.

My first thought is to say wait. Barclays and GE are both TU pullers. Can she wait until the 2012 inquiries hit 12 months? At that point, they won't count towards fico scoring and should give a 10-20 pt bump. I think GE will approve but Barclays will require recon. It seems like a lot of INQs spread across CBs as well. Discover will pull EQ so even that is somewhat shaky. If it was me, I'd likely go with barclays and GE together as long as I've had 6 mos reporting and wait a bit longer for EQ to develop before discover. 

 

Any idea how long current lines have reported? I'm a bit gun shy on her because I know Barclays will likely complain. One more thing, is she ballin income wise?

I had to recon my both my barclays cards. It took some selling but I had only 1 INQ the first time and 2 the 2nd time. I think its possible but likely will need to recon instantly and be prepared to work the analyst. Best bet is to wait a bit and let some inqs fade and get a score bump.
