Lol oknhere it goes; I have gotten 3, Opened it October2010 via the wonderful backdoor # w/ $1k cl. I then received a auto cli $2k in April 2011 then another auto cli $4k in Oct 2011 a year after opening it. I have used the card and done my best to PIF every month. Right now I am carrying high balance so we will see next month after the statement closes.

Re: Barclays iTunes auto-CLI

Soooo......I got denied when applying for the Itunes Barclay card.   I called the back door and got aprooved for a $1500 dollar limit.  Bittersweet.  I curently have a card with my credit union..4k limit..HSBC-1100, Cap 1--750, Cap 1 500, and Target-200.    I wanted to get a card that would give me a great limit so I can close the other ones.  What gives?  Is this card really worth it with only a $1500 limit?

 

Thanks

I checked my mail today and noticed that to my suprise Barclays just increased my credit limit from $5K that I got in March to $6500 just.  I've basically just transferred a balance from Cap 1 to this card and then used this card sparingly and made regular payments.  Some good news for people that have just signed up for this card and are hoping for a CLI in six months.   This company rocks!!  FYI, I also had like 4 other hard inquiries around March and this didn't seem to matter!


Congrats OP!!!

Re: Barclays iTunes auto-CLI

It will depend your needs, but I can tell you that my CL has tripled since opening it.  Not only that but if you have an Itunes account you get the rewards, oh yea and I have received several offers for 0% or as low as 3.9% APR on balance transfer which has helped.
