Re: Barclays flat out denied me!

You ALWYAS recon with Barclays.  Whether it's for approval on a denial or a higher CL on an approval.  Always call them.

Re: Barclays flat out denied me!

UPDATE: i recon with them twice and got the same answer from two different CSR's. I need to establish two years on all my credit cards, before they approve me, because of the baddies that i have.

Re: Barclays flat out denied me!

I know this is a bit delayed, but my DH suddenly expressed strong interest in an iPad (sigh) so now I'm thinking about apping for their Apple card... Would you mind expanding a bit on the baddies you have?

 

Did they deny you for any branded card they have, or specifically for the regular Visa that you mentioned?
