Decided to app for a couple of cards this evening since it had been 13 months since I apped for anything.


Was approved for Slate for............... $500  Smiley Sad

Approved for Barclay Rewards MC for.........$3,000       with 0% for 12 months and 14.99% after that. I think this is going to be a great rewards card and I needed a MC too since I closed my Cap1 Secured last week.


Anyway, the Slate is kind of a sad story with failed recon and 2 HP's etc. I thought maybe my 13 months of perfect PIF with the Freedom would help me on this one, but evidently my internal score hasn't increased much over the last year. Smiley Tongue


Anyway, yipee!!!


BTW: My EX score (Slate)  is somewhere around 680ish and my TU (Barclay) is approx 700


EX showing 1 medical collection

TU is clean no baddies


AAoA approx 6 years oldest accounts 11 years. Utilization is around 12%

Congrats on your approval's Smiley Happy

Re: Chase and Barclay Approved!

Congrats x2

"If there's a lack of money in your life, understand that feeling worried, envious, jealous, disappointed, discouraged, doubtful or fearful about money can never bring more money to you, because those feelings come from a lack of gratitude for the money you have."

"Reactions are powerful creators because they contain every element needed to manifest—they're a combination of thought, belief, and feeling in action. Positive reactions create more positive things, and negative reactions create more negative things. If you can respond to negative situations calmly and lightly, instead of with emotional turbulence, what happens next in your life will be so much better."

Re: Chase and Barclay Approved!

Congrats!!! I truly wonder how they assign the lowest or highest APR!! I have a 720 FICO, got a $5k world arrival mc(later upped to 12.7k) but STILL got the HIGHEST apr of 18.99% ugh
Congrats again though!!! Barclay's is good with that first auto cli after 6-7 months.
Also, Id keep calling Chase recon to get that Slate limit upped. If I got a 500 cl, I'd close it immediately. LOL

Re: Chase and Barclay Approved!

just so you are aware, barclays card will put a hold on your payment for 7-10 before they make the funds available to you as credit so if you are hoping for a quick turnaround of the creidt to be on your card, dont hold your breath. i made a 700 payment on 6-13. they are telling me those funds wont be available until 6-24.  when i called to argue about it, they went off on some lame excuse how with the credit card act that was signed, consumers have 7 days to request the money refunded back to your checking acount. i think its bull because when i make a payment on my us bank card,merrick bank., capitol one cards, etc, the funds are available the next day
