I have two and DW has one (Casey's, Apple for me, B&N for DW).  But they didn't used to like joint accounts

Re: Barclays and Lowes GEMB question

Can't speak for Barclays, BUT I will be seeing how they feel about multiple accounts when I apply for the Frontier World Mastercard in October this year.

 

As for Lowe's, I was instantly approved at the cash register with a $400 purchase for a $1,200 limit.  I called them up the next morning, said I wanted to spend some more money, but didn't want to max out the card, instantly bumped to $2,000, soft pull on EQ and TU, she told me.

 

Hope this helps for the Lowe's question.

Re: Barclays and Lowes GEMB question

I received my Lowes card and online requested a CLI maybe 2 months after getting the card.  They denied it giving the reason that I haven't used the card enough...something along those lines, which was true.  I started using the card and PIF each time.  Maybe a couple months later I requested a CLI again.  This time they granted it and doubled my limit.
