Barclay likes BT's and carrying a balance during the promo period. People who that usually see an auto CLI @ 6 months

I got initially approved for a 3k limit and then called and told them I wanted to BT over 6K from another card.  They bumped my limit up to 9K to accomodate the transfer.

Re: Approved for Barclaycard Rewards Aspiring Prime...have a question

use it and pay your bill ontime, they like to see use. I got the NFL rewards card in 2/13 with the same limit, they bumped me up to 2k after 6 months. I rolled the dice for the world arrival card yesterday  because of a planned trip out of country this spring and they approved me for 4k. Just do not apply for anything else in the next 6 months.

Someone help! I used the prequal link & I got his...Even though they declined me almost two months ago for the rewards mastercard. I am not sure if this is different because it is ASPIRING... Do I apply? Is this legit?

What was your credit score TU and how many inquiries in the last two years?

I may have an answer if I know how many inquiries and late payment you have in the last 2 years. Thanks.

Ive got one of these cards and have heard that they will close your account if you rack up inquiries at least within the six month period after they have issued the card to you or have too much overall available credit. So if you want to at least keep the card youd want to be aware of this. I personally dont care if they take the card for any reason and their lowball offer was down right offensive.
