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

I knew I should have taken the number with me!! I got in the car and was dying to call them back and ask for more... I don't know why my advice to others in the past would not be the same for myself now especially with Barlay! but they are already closed:smileysad:

 

How about thoughts on a 2nd Barclay Card, Thinking Travelocity or AirTran... we had seen it a few months back but not sure if that was a little out of norm or not.

But that person I think not only got approved for both but was able to get increases on both with calls back in.

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

i have the thought of spreading out, sure i have 2 amex cards, but 1 is a charge card and other is credit card, why have multi cards with 1 player? when they should give u 1 card and raise the CL?

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

Seems people have luck with Barclay. I remember applying one couple months ago with no such luck.

 

When I tried the recon number they simply declined my application without me having a chance to appeal.Maybe I'll give it another go next year or so.

 

Congrats people for getting in with Barclay.

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

trumpet, sometimes there is no rhyme or reason for approvals/denials. I mean, after all they put it in a computer and 30 seconds later give you an answer (or at least they did for me). And as far as recons, who knows maybe you got a grumpy Barclay's rep.

 

Your scores are better than mine. Hopefully Barclay's will give me my updated TU FICO when they send me the card. But if you want, I'd just try again. Your scores should make you a shoe-in.

Transunion: 713 FICO (5/13/2014) MyFico
Experian: 789 FICO (4/10/12) Lender Pull
Equifax: 695 FICO (1/10/14) MyFico

My cards: Chase United Mileage Plus 7000CL (3/12), CITI Simplicity 1800CL (9/12), Cap1 Platinum 1000CL (2/10), Cap1 Cash back 1500CL (11/11), Apple Barclay's 2500CL (11/11), Discover IT 6000CL (5/13)

My Primary Financial Goal is to put down my utl%.

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

I had to run some errands this afternoon, so I'll call tomorrow and see if I can get a CLI. I'll post the results tomorrow.

 

I know this may be a silly question, but can the Apple card only be used for Apple products, or anywhere since it's a visa? It's a little confusing to me because there are no benefits related to Apple. So, if it can be used anywhere, I wonder why they call it an Apple card. :smileyhappy:

It's accepted wherever VISA is accepted.
