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!

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

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

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

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!
