Barclay recon sucess - Thank you all

I am new to myFico but have been trying to restablish my credit for about a year now.  I have a couple capital one cards and the nfl barclay card.  I applied for their other barclay card after reading all the suggestions in this forum.  I was denied online the following day.  I called the backdoor number and after a few minutes and a few questions was approved for $500 to get started with.  It was painless and quick but I would not have thought to call had I not found this forum.  I just wanted to say thank you to all the members here who post and share their wealth of knowledge and experience with the rest of us.

 

Transunion is 658  - Equifax is 634...slowly making improvements.

Which Barclay card, may I ask? They have many.

 

I just recently applied for their Sallie Mae 5% card, with 5% back on groceries, gas, and bookstores (aka Amazon). I was denied and was approved after a couple minute phone call.

 

Congrats! Barclay is great with recons.

It was with their rewards MC.  I have their NFL card and the lady I spoke with said I had been doing a good job with that card so she didn't see a reason not to approve me for this one.

Congrats Smiley Wink keep up the good work!

Before you app think...
Have you done your research of the CC?
Does it fit your spending?
Do you have a plan for the bonus w/o going into debt?
Can you afford the AF?
Do you know the cards benefits? Is it worth the HP?

How much history with the NFL card before applying for the Rewards card?
