Super Congrats, yet another Barclays recon success story, surprise surprise :smileyvery-happy: You could have probably asked for a higher CL and they would have reconsidered that as well, not sayin you would have gotten one, but Barclays is awesome with recons.

 

Congrats again!!

Re: Barclays recon success

The number I called is 18663691283 and I was not looking for bi cl I would of been happier than hell with 500 and my report they pulled was tu and I had 661 fico and I stated that when I called told him what was on my report and he gave me no hassle prolly helped that you only needed bad credit to get it and my score was decent compared to who they usually approve

When you say worked like a charm do you mean you did a recon and were successful?

 

Just curious to hear another Barclays recon success story.

Also worked for me. $2000 credit limit with a 698 tu score. I have a judgement due off my record in feb.
