Barclay's Denial Recon Approval

Applied online via apple.com website on Sunday and was denied. Call this morning and asked for a manual review and after a short moment on hold and justifying my past blemishes on my credit report the nice lady approved me for a $750.00 limit. THANK YOU myFICO would have never gotten this far without the help of this website and all of its valuable members!

 

Hope this helps other in a similar situation!

Re: Barclay's Denial Recon Approval

Congrats!! I love Barcaly's!!

 

They gave me a chance last year to re-build my credit, and they've been great with CLI's without me asking. Doubt I'll ever close it.

Re: Barclay's Denial Recon Approval

Called backdoor number and the women explained to me that they are looking specifically what individuals with trouble credit history have been doing to rebuild thier credit. A  truthful explanation is all it took!

Awesome, grats.

 

Im going to have to try this tomorrow as I just got shot down on a barnes and noble card from them. TU is my best score too, 691 (0 collections/baddies on tu) as of 2 months ago. Reasons given were recently opened credit account (cu account like 6 months ago?), high debt (a little under 30% useage atm, maybe I should have waited /sigh) and by far the most annoying reason being low credit limits. I just cancelled my $300 limit orchard due to its low limit (and apr/af) since Im trying to remedy my "low limit" problem.

 

Hopefully it works, thanks for giving me hope and reminding me I should try this =) .
