Holy Crap APPROVED for Barclay's Apple!!!!

Re: Holy Crap APPROVED for Barclay's Apple!!!!

Well, today is the day for Barclays! I app'd and got $1200. I had to call to verifiy my identity and then he told me I was approved. Whew! I was sitting in front of my laptop with my fingers crossed, holding my breath. I've seen so many declines in recent years, that it's a whole new experience to actually *be* approved for instant credit.

 

He asked me if that would be enough for my purchase and I said that I wasn't sure (tho had asked for $500 to $1000 purchase on app). He said if I needed more, to call their CS. I'm not sure if I should just be grateful for what I got or if I should call and try for a higher CL.

 

Thanks to everyone here for the invaluable information and encouragement! Smiley Happy

I'm freaking out now guys. I just was just instantly approved for Barclay's Apple on-line with a 1900CL. I'm really at a loss for words. To be honest, I'm getting choked up. I just never thought I could fix my credit. Ever. It seemed insurmountable! But my moment has finally arrived. I'm here! Thank you all SO SO MUCH for giving me a life filled with optomism.


What was your scores / bureau pulled / baddies?
