He was drapping on a natural high (just as dangerous as a chemical one Smiley Happy )  Grats on your new cards.  With the Barclays one, I would garden for at least the next 6 months.  No apps as they are notorious for AA's.

Keep the balances below 10% of your credit limit when the billing cycles close each month and you should see a huge improvement in scores.  I only have one Capital One card with a $500 limit, I had a balance of $493 and at the time my EQ was 585, i made a $160 payment and within a few days of the acct billing date I got an email from score watch that said the score went to 626.
