Barclays Apple financing visa recon success!

I really should be in gardening mode, but I read that a new Apple Macbook Pro was coming out in early June.  So I applied for the Barclays card online, and was declined.  Called the recon number right away, and a nice man went over the application with me.  He wasn't too worried about my 2 baddies, but more of the recent inquiries.  I told I was trying to rebuild credit fast.  He put me on hold for 3-5 minutes, and asked if I could fax in my paycheck stubs.  I did so right away.  He told me it would take up to 2 business days to do the recon.  I checked online 2 hours after faxing, and I found that I was approved for what I asked for.  3.5k.  I'm happy, but damn, I should have asked for more.

What is your current scores? and baddies. I am just wondering if being an AU on those good acconts helped you with your current amex. I plan on doing the same for a family member.

I'm pretty sure being an AU on prime cards helps.  How much it helps remains unknown.  My (real) fico score is 665, with fako's between 620 and 680.  I've got an unpaid collection from 2007 for $1700 reporting on all three bureaus, and a paid collection that still reports.  Hope this helps.

Vonmann,

 

May I ask what limit they started you with?  And what were your scores when you applied?

I was recently approved for an apple/Barclay cc. Bought an iPad thru website and was instantly approved for $1200. Plan to pay off in 90 days..wait 6 months and ask for cli to purchase a Mac pro... Question.... My fako exp is 656, the even more fako CK(tu) 720. Atm I have 2 cc(750 & 300), 25% utilz with Barclay card(2250 total credit). So I ask, what kind of credit score increase I can expect when the Barclay card hits my report in June. Btw. It's been 3 weeks and I don't see a HP on my exp for the Barclays card. Thanks, Aloha
