Barclays Carnival Sea Miles and Discover More Cards

I want to start by saying this forum rocks. Three years ago I filed BK and felt like there was no hope. I found this forum and with it came hope. I was never approved for A Discover Card when I had great credit. On 05/31/2011 I applied for the Barclays card was was approved for $2200. So I said lets try the Discover More Card. Got a message to call customer service number. After the verified some info they said I was approved for a $1000. Not alot but its a start. Now back to gardening.

Starting Score 01/01/2010: EQ(607), Trans(590)
Current Score ----------------->: EQ(689), Trans(705), EX(617)
Goal Score 12/31/2013--->: EQ(680), Trans(680), EX(680)

Re: Barclays Carnival Sea Miles and Discover More Cards

Congratulations on the approvals and great limits!!  Would you mind confirming which CRA's were pulled for both applications?  I filed BK in 2006 and I am very interested in applying for Carnival Card but I was nervous up until I saw this post.  My EQ score is 652 and I am waiting for Sallie to correct their reporting on my TU before I repull score.  I have heard that Barclay's pulls TU but I wanted to confirm for Discover as well. 

Thank you!
