Re: Just approved for barclay card.. what card next …??

Rumor is that Barclay frowns upon people opening up too much credit in the first 5 months after you get a card with them.  I'll find out next month because I opened 4 new cards including the barclay card back in October.  With your scores I might garden 6 months with the Barclay and hope your scores get closer to 700 before applying for a rotating card like discover or freedom or a card like BCE.

With your scores, definitely garden for at least 6 months. Barclays gets spooked with a bunch of new accounts without the credit history to back that up. But after that, I'd go for a Discover or BCE/BCP.

Congrats on your approval. I would also suggest to garden for 6 months...You do not want to spook Barclays :smileyhappy:  You might get an auto-cli on Barclays with your 6th statement if you are lucky and then you might want to app for another card at that time.

You should be good to go for capital one quicksilver and possibly a base amex charge card or amex delta credit card.

 

look, if you plan on charging up the Barclays... AND then going to apply for more credit, sure.  But if you are using the card and paying it off, don't think it will scare off Barclays.

 

i think the rumors are overblown, and we don't know what other issues other people had.

Which barclay card did you get? And what other cards do you already have?

That is accurate!

 

they lowered my limit from $2000 to $1350 (just above what was on the card; I just bought some stuff at apple store) once I opened some new account

AMEX TrueEarnings 10K | AMEX BCE 10K | AMEX Hilton Honors 10K | AMEX Hilton Surpass 2K | Bank of America 1-2-3 2K | Barclay Card 2K | Chase Southwest Premier Visa 6K | Chase Marriott Premier Visa 9K | Discover IT Card 1.5K | Merrick Bank 1.4K | Navy Federal Credit Union Visa 10K | Navy Federal Credit Union navCheck 15K | USAA Rewards 7K |+ tons of store cards (GE furniture, Amazon, Lowes, Home Depot, etc)
Total amount of available credit $100K
Scores (as of December 2013) Equifax 714 | Experian 714 | Transunion 727
Short term goal is score 750+ across the board
Long term goal is to have all scores close to 800 or 800+
