Anyone have more than 3 INQ and 4+ new accounts in last 6 months and got approved for the card?

Instant or Recon?

Limit approved? Is that more/less than most of your others?


I had 7 new accounts in past year (about 5 of them in past 6-7 months) and about 4/5 inquiries on TU when I applied.  I was initially denied (not instant) for too many accounts when I talked to rep.  I reconed and was approved.  TU was about 720's.

Current Score: EQ 710 TU 727 EX 704 CK 719(FAKO-EX 697, EQ 697, TU 697)

Yup.  Got the World MC with them with 5k CL.  My other cards are as follows: (In order I acquired them)

1. Cap1 Secured - 2k CL

2. WF Secured - 1k CL

3. AMEX Zync - NPSL

4. AMEX Delta - 6k CL

5. Walmart Discover - 5.4k CL

6. Chase Amazon Visa - 2.3k CL

7. Chase Freedom Visa - 1.5k CL

8. NFCU Flagship Siggy Visa - 25k CL

9. Discover IT - 6k CL

10. BCP - 8.6k CL

11. Barclay Arrival (AF) World MC - 5k CL

 

With Chase being so low on my CL list and me wanting CSP, I decided to get the Arrival and farm my other cards for a while before I go for another Chase card.  I want at least a 10k CL on CSP.

Re: Applied for Barclaycard Arrival World MC - Pending! :(

Thanks a lot everyone!!!

 

I will definitely call. I have no luck with instant approvals. The only instant approvals I've ever gotten was for Freedom, where I already had CSP and Chase Amazon and prior banking relationship with Chase, and Discover, where I had 0 inquiries on my EQ and everything was nice and pristine. 

I am not sure if it's due to the fact that I'm self employed or I'm just not that trustworthy to the computer/bank :smileysad:

Please make sure to call the BackDoor number on Monday to expedite the app process. Barclays is very good about that!
I just pulled the trigger on this card and was approved 20K CL. When you get your approval- would you mind sharing if it's the World product or the World Elite? I'd great appreciate it. Best of Luck!!!
Edit: forgot- they pulled TU for me and almost always pull (99.9%) TU. if they need a 2nd- it's (99.9%) EX next.

Should I call this: Barclays: 866-408-4064 (Credit Analyst) or  18663691283?

Were you approved instantly? 
I am hoping they didn't touch my EX at all. That will put me at 12 inquiries :smileylol:

I have 2 inquiries in the recent 2 years, though both were made around end of march 2013, and 1 new auto loan account reporting at 100% owed of orginal balance that was opened in Feb'13. Guess I need to recon and explain that as well.

Hopefully I get approved!

Which Citi card has the world mastercard elite? The Prestige?

 

If I am approved for this card, what are the requirements to get it switched to world elite MC? To be honest the only reason why I chose this card was that it is a 2% MC. I was tempted to go with Priceline which gives 2% but it's a visa, and Ron told me they might be downgrading the program soon.

 

Thanks a lot once again everyone!!!

I had Citi Dividend World MC for over 10 years and I called to request for Elite World MC upgrade. It took 45 days to complete the upgrade.

Re: Applied for Barclaycard Arrival World MC - Pending! :(

Damn they're really removing it :smileysad:

 

https://www.pricelinevisa.com/ still reflects the 2% cashback.

 

Hopefully I get approved for the Arrival then :/
