Just called Barclays about my app.

 

Got approved! Had to answer a simple question about my income, and a dispute that is on my CR currently.

They're starting me with a CL of 8000, which isn't high nor low, but I'm still happy I got approved Smiley Very Happy

 

Thanks a lot everyone. THIS IS MY LAST APP UNTIL NOV 2013! (not that I really have a choice......lol)

 

btw, so this card is 2% everything, and i can redeem for statement credits right? or does it have to be redeemed for travel spending only?


Congrats!!!! $8K is a good starting CL. I didn't get that  for my Barclay's Rewards World MC. It's time to stop applying. You need to save for Amex later on this year. Smiley Happy

thanks!

i tried to ask if i can get a higher initial limit but the lady (customer security dept) said i could request one or something (she wasn't exactly her herself). i told her its fine and i'm gonna settle with this CL for now. I am now worried about barclay's AA <_<

 


When my sister got approved for the barclay card they told her if she wanted higher cl she would need to call once the account was opened but i don't know if they do cli upon activation and if they HP

Don't use the card aggressively

Charge very little like little as 30-$100

Don't leave any balances on the other cards like 30% utl or nothing like that

Only after 3-6 months you could freely charge the card since is like probation with them right now

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

congrats! would also recommend to use it slowly and always pif for the next 6 months...I can tell you the feeling of any AA taken because of exceptional CL extention is not a very good one. I survived the first 3 months but with that Citi card just last month I need to fear again the next 3 months. I will never do this again in my entire life. app spre yes but mini spree and never 5 x CL again. seeing SP every two weeks does not make me feel very comfortable Smiley Sad
