Approved for Barclays Apple card

It is a great feeling today. I am at 2 years post BK7 and have been working diligently to clean up my credit. A few weeks ago I managed to work with capital one's executive office  to increase my card from 750 to 1500 and add rewards to the card.  Decided to give Barclays Apple card a shot since I plan on picking up a few items from them....it was a nervy 30 seconds while my application was being processed and what would you know......I had a real nice smile on my face when I got the message saying approved for 2700. This is my highest credit limit. I must say I am quite enjoying this life after BK...I could not have done this without the help of those on this forum.

CONGRATS! I guess Barclay is BK friendly!

As of 2017, rebuilding...

Re: Approved for Barclays Apple card

Barclays is BK friendly, I spaced my applications out and made sure I did not apply for any credit I did not need as well as make sure I make all my payments ontime. Successfully brought my credit scores very close to 700. I have been reading about how sensitive Barclays is to additional credit lines being opened. I really do have no other credit lines I want to open except discover (fingers crossed they'll let me in).
