I just got off the phone with Barclays recon line and after applying online and being flat out denied for the card I called in and spoke to a super nice ENGLISH speaking rep and I told him my info and a little more employment history and what I use my current card for and what my payment habits are and told him annual income and he said I looked at your credit report and it looks like Iyou are taking all steps to build a good credit history and we would love to help you in your quest and we are going to approve you for it with 1000 cl lol I only wanted the minimum cl but beggers can not be choosers let me know if anyone wants backdoor number used
Super Congrats, yet another Barclays recon success story, surprise surprise You could have probably asked for a higher CL and they would have reconsidered that as well, not sayin you would have gotten one, but Barclays is awesome with recons.

Thank you, that number worked like a charm! :-)
When you say worked like a charm do you mean you did a recon and were successful?
Just curious to hear another Barclays recon success story.
