Barclay Rewards Card

Have you been approved for a Barclays Card with a 650ish score? Looking to add a good rewards card. Love my Discover but limit isn't as high as I would like, wondering if my CL would be higher with a Barclays.

 

Thanks!

Southwest: $9k - Discover It $1,900 - Amazon $2,900 - CAP1 - $1,500 - QuickSilver (FKA Orchard) - $900 - J. Crew $1K - LOFT $1K - Nordstroms $1K - Amex BCE - $3,000
Scores: Credit Karma 687, Credit Sesame 660- EQ 643 - EX 665 (from Amex)- TQ 655 Lender Pull: 693

Re: Barclay Rewards Card

You might be approved.. but with their different cards, the criteria changes dramatically. The apple finacing card I've seen people be approved with scores barely scratching 600... other cards, it's a hit or miss. If you're worried about limit though, Barclays wouldn't be my first choice.

+1.  On the Rewards card, Barclays gave me my lowest limit in 25 years, less than 1/3rd of my next lowest.   On the other hand, they gave me decent limit on their US Airways card earlier.
