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

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

Oh God LOL....so I registered my account on Barclay's official website only to discover my CL is $1,190.00 -- not $1,900.00. Haha wow I was freaking out so badly when I saw I was approved that I mis-read it. Well, that makes a lot of more sense to me now. Seeing as how people on here with better credit profiles weren't even getting $1,900.00. Not to mention I said my expected purchase was $500-$1000.

 

Anyways I don't care. I'm not recon'ing. I'm just soooo happy to have this card. I'll build a good relationship with them and see what happens. Thank you MyFico and thank you Barclays!

Haha I did call and recon my CLI. They upped it to 2K! They have amazingly friendly customer service. I'm looking forward to developing a long standing relationship with Barclay's. They've really extended me quite the olive branch. In turn, I will show them tremendous loyalty.

Poo, my poor measly $1000 limit. That's ok, with strong payments and loyalty I'm sure this card has potential until Cap1 Smiley Happy

Everyone who's reconed successfully this morning or yesterday, did you call the "cust care" number or the "credit analyst" number?

 

Thanks! Smiley Happy

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

What is everyone telling them to get the CLI? I'm *so* afraid that if I call them, they're going to realize their mistake and CLD or something. I know I'm just being paranoid because of my credit past.

 

Is everyone saying you want a Mac Book Pro? Or are you just asking for a CLI?

 

Just would like to know what's working for others before I call. Smiley Happy

 

Thanks!
