I have a feeling that this will be a very good beginning to a relationship with Barclays!  I just gave them a call, it took about 5 minutes, and I was approved!  He asked about whether or not I carry balances, verified employment, and asked about school.  I was honest about everything, and he gave me a $1000 limit, my highest yet!


CONGRATS!!!

Re: Barclays Denial

Just to add a bit in case it might help anyone in the future, I applied to Barclays on 8/10 and was denied.

 

I received the denial letter today and it noted three reasons:

 

1) Low available credit on existing credit card(s) -  I had only USAA Visa w/ $3K limit as of that day

2) Insufficient credit history - My auto loan was opened 10/11 and USAA Visa opened 2/12. I closed the rebuilder cards I had before that.

3) High number of recent inquiries - Yes, they were part of my app spree between 8/7 and 8/12

 

TU FICO was 688 on 8/10 as reported in my denial letter.

 

BK in 2005, Perfect record since, though a very thin file.

[ Edited ]

They have a 20k bonus points ($200 statement credit) after your first purchase if you use the correct link to apply:

 

http://www.nflextrapoints.com/mvt25/?campaignId=1571&cellNumber=504&vanityURL=superbowl

 

Plus 15 mos 0% balance transfer (4% fee, ouch), and 1% cash back on all purchases (good for NFL Gear and statement credits). It is a Visa Signature (or World Mastercard) card (if you qualify). Not a bad bonus...if you apllied and got the 10k ($100) bonus, you should call back and give them this link, and try to get the 20k.

 

I don't have the card, but thought about it, just for the cash back...you can't apply for everything youe see, LOL


CC's: AMEX (4), Alliant Visa, PenFed AMEX, Pen Fed Promise, Citi (4), Chase (6), Nordstrom Visa,US Bank Cash+, Huntington Voice, UMB Visa, Nasa Plat Cash Visa, Barclay's Visa, Citi (5), Discover IT, Walmart Discover, Sam's MC, Cabela's Visa, Cap One QS, BOA (2), BMW Visa, Comenity Visa/MC (3), Ebates Visa Siggy, 5/3 RLR MC, Diner's Club MC; Macy's AMEX; A few store cards.
