Re: Barclay CC let's put our heads together

Approved: February 2012 after a long spree of applying. Inititally declined for inquires but the gentleman overturned it and approved for 2500.

Increase: August 2012 after using it up to the limit multiple times and keeping a 0% balance for about 2 months before deciding I didn't want to have it maxed out. Increased to 3400

Spree: opened five cards in November and December 2012

Increase: March 2013 to 4600. I didn't use the card as much and only charged it up to the max about twice during the time since the last increase. Inquiries on TransUnion were about 2 to 4 at all times.

Re: Barclay CC let's put our heads together

Hmmmm... this could be interesting.  Of course, I won't know for sure for the next 4-8 months so we'll see if anything comes about on my Barclays accounts.
