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. Smiley Happy

 

 


I also find it strange that this card has no mention of Apple on it like the other Barclay Cards do (example LL Bean)

 

It's a visa and can be used anywhere visa is accepted.

Truer words have never been spoken! I have to fight the urge to app daily. 

 

Congrats to all those who got in with Barclays! I have their NFL card with a low limit, but this was after calling for a recon twice after being denied, so I decided not to complain about the limit and just enjoy my card. They said to call back in a few months and they'll try and get it raised! They have by far the friendliest reps I've ever talked to; they're real and personable...not reading from a script or computer prompts.

Yay! Big day for MyFico'ers with Barclay's. Looks like Christmas came a little early. And yes, Bichon, I've basically only known denials so it was a bit shocking seeing "Approved!" on my computer screen.


Today was a very good day. One of the best I've had in a long time.


 

I'm really happy for the both of you! Smiley Very Happy

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

I'm with John.  I decided to pull the trigger on a Barclays Apple card on account of new laptop purchase coming up in about a month and got approved for $1,290.  Should I call to recon the CLI?  My overall util is < 5% and PIF everything.
