Just got approved for 1000 limit the other day from barclays...I had to recon to get to 1000 but the guy mentioned about a lot of accounts opened since 2011. However before I opened this card I opened 3 other accounts that haven't reported yet... Will I get AA'd? Im afraid I will lol.

Re: Barclays

Congrats on your approval!!!!


No you won't get AA'd now because they approved you already knowing you had new accounts.  I hear the magic number is 6 months with Barclays before you apply for new accounts.  I guess that means you are out of the woods after that.  However this a a YMMV situation.


I have opened at least 8 different cards since I've had Barclays since Sept and nothing has happened yet.....crossing my fingers because this is my 6th month now :smileyhappy:.  But they have been sp'ing me so they do know about the cards.


But i have gotten other cards 4 times the limit of my Barclays so if they shut me down then oh well.
