Thank to this forum I'm successfully making progess in my credit repair journey. Last night after procrastinating for weeks I decided to apply for a Barclay credit card. I was supprised they denied my approval. I was a bit shocked because I've been working like a dog repairing and removing old and obsolete information on my report for the past 2 years! Anyways, long story short. I read here we could call the reconsideration phone number and have someone manually review your report. I called, and after a 5 minute phone call and a few questions I was APPROVED for $750. It may not be much but its a start and I'll take it!
Congrats!! Barclay's is tough from what I hear... I have one with a good CL but not as high as my 2 new Chase cards.

May I ask what your scores were when you were approved?
