The HP is unfortunate, but perhaps if I find some time on Friday morning I will give them a call to see what can happen with a soft pull. If its a no go, I can wait for CLis or re-evaluate and ask for an HP in 6 months. I have more than enough credit available right now to achieve my FICO goals, and I don't actually use the CLs anyway haha. I always pay my balances to zero by the due date because I refuse to live in anything but a cash-only financial position. The difference between what i do now and what I did 12 months ago is that I gain rewards now. Smiley Happy

Thanks to all of you for continuing to provide a wealth of knowledge for my use!

Very big congrats to keeping your finances in control! Smiley Very Happy

@SnackTrader
You will have a far better chance at no HP CL recon if you call early in the morning as opposed to waiting a few days. Just my thoughts. Smiley Happy

Re: Barclaycard Arrival Approval!

For the purposes of easily tracking information, here are the updates from this application:

Got home today from a few nights on the road and found my new Arrival card waiting for me. Nothing special looking, but the documentation included my APR (18.99%) and credit bureau information. Barclays pulled Transunion as expected, and my FICO was reported as 752.

I never called to get a CLI, I figured I would use this card a lot and might see some auto CLIs anyway. I'm in no rush.

Thanks for stopping by, everyone. If you have questions, ask away!

In My Wallet: Amex BCP (12/12) $50,000, Chase Freedom (12/12) $16,500, Cap1 Quicksilver (6/12) $14,000, Barclaycard Rewards (5/13) $10,500, Citi Prestige (4/16) $30,000

Re: Barclaycard Arrival Approval!

WTG a nice pcs of mail to come home to

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?

Thanks for posting this and including your score. I have my eyes on this card for Sept or more likely Dec 2013.

 

I'm surprised they gave you 18.99% with a TU 752. I would've thought a score like that would qualify for 14.99%.

My score was around 750ish as well when I got approved and they gave me 14.99%.

I am guessing it was mostly due to the fact that I had 0 inquiries on my TU report.

I wish I knew how they determine which APR bracket applicants fall under. I got the lowest APR terms for all of my cards except Discover. They gave me 18% when I had 0 inquiries on my EQ as well. Score on EQ was around 750ish too Smiley Mad

Re: Barclaycard Arrival Approval!

GRRR to them! This is good info, though.

 

I have an old inquiry (from 12/2011) falling off TU in December and then I will have none on TU. I'm thinking best time to app is after that.

 

Plus, by then, my three recent TL (opened this month) will have 6 months under their belts.
