Best BT card for me - UPDATED

Re: Best BT card for me??

Called recon

 

They approved me for $1000 .. not quite enough to do my BT , it will at least cover some of it.. 

 

Do you think i should call and ask for a CLI on my Freedom card? if so should i call the back door number to do this? or normal CSR?

 

hold tight on the barclays?

If your freedom isn't being used much, maybe you can transfer some of the limit to slate.

Re: Best BT card for me??

I have $1500 limit on my freedom that was opened in March of this year & I was shocked to hear they approved me . she asked me questions about my INQ's which i explained my auto situation and she went away and came back told me i was approved for $1000 .. You thinking i should of asked for more to cover my BT?

Re: Best BT card for me??

Oh well... Since it has been six months, maybe you can increase freedom... Assuming no missed payments....or transfer $1000 of the freedom limit to slate limit. Haha. This all has to be done through the backdoor haha

Re: Best BT card for me??

Its already showing up in my Chase account online. that was quick. gives me offer for BT too.. Shame its only $1000

 

One last quick question.. should i do barclays while ive had HP for today? or not worth the risk? I have a feeling i will need to explain all my INQ's again and why i have a few balances?

 

Thanks

Re: Best BT card for me??

If you feel like they may give you a higher limit, but they typically only match limits, so if your highest is $1500, you may only get a $1500 cl with them...up to you. I like Barclay's, but they can be tricky, or so Ive read on this forum lol
