Barclay Card for Average Credit

Does anybody here have this card? What was your score when you app'd? I was thinking of possibly applying for this card but i think my credit may be good enough to actually obtain the barclay card for people with good credit.. especially since i am now being accepted for prime cards.. Although the lowest of all my 3 scores is TransUnion which Barclays almost always pulls

Goal: 700 and an Amex Card!

Re: Barclay Card for Average Credit

I got this card last month also during a spree. I app'd for it because of Credit Karma's recommendation that I had a good chance of approval. Barclay's pulled TU. My score was 659 at the time. I'm one year post BK7. Instantly approved for 1000. I thought about reconning for a higher limit but didnt want to get too greedy. I think I screwed myself though as I added 3 more accounts after this through NFCU. I've heard stories that Barclay's does not like you opening too many new accounts after being approved for any of their cards. Keeping my fingers crossed that they dont cancel this one.
