Thank to this forum I'm successfully making progess in my credit repair journey.  Last night after procrastinating for weeks I decided to apply for a Barclay credit card.  I was supprised they denied my approval.  I was a bit shocked because I've been working like a dog repairing and removing old and obsolete information on my report for the past 2 years!  Anyways,  long story short.  I read here we could call the reconsideration phone number and have someone manually review your report.  I called,  and after a 5 minute phone call and a few questions I was APPROVED for $750. It may not be much but its a start and I'll take it! 

 

Thanks everyone!

way to go though, to not take "no" as the final answer.  Pays off :smileyhappy:

Re: Barclay APPROVED

I got the same card, and was also approved for 750. It's been a great card, and they have been cool with me making multiple payments per month. I've already gotten 150+ in cash back. I'm about to hit six months with them.
