I got an apple Barclays $2200 last Nov. was hoping for auto CLI at 6 mos. but no go. I took the HP for a CLI in July. Some here have posted about getting one at a year, but it really depends. With a recent BK, you may have to request CLIs for a while.

Doesnt barclays look at recent new accounts as well? Just recently saw that high limit and is testing the waters with you at first? Either way at least you were approved! Congrats and keep us posted with what DOES happen

I had a BK 7 successfully discharged in Jan 09.
Got the Barclays I-tunes card in Nov 2011 with a starting limit of $1100 (after recon). They auto CLI in May 2012 up to $2200. Then in Nov 2012 I requested another $1500 CLI and they gave it to me. So in one year I went from $1100 to $3700 with Barclay's.
I use the card heavily.

Also, during that time period I opened no new accounts. HOWEVER, once I got the last increase last month I have since opened up 3 GE accounts (Walmart, JCP and Dillards) all with toy limits. I don't think Barclays will be inclined to give me another auto CLI in May 2013 due to the new accounts from what I have read here.

DH got this card in November 2010 with an initial CL of $3000.
Never requested an increase, just received spontaneous CLI to $5500 last month.
So, almost doubled after two years here.

I'm sorry, I had looked at the second post and was talking about the Barclaycard for Apple financing.
I don't know how the NFL one may be different.
