Q: App Timing for Best Results

Re: Q: App Timing for Best Results

I REALLY thought about applying for the Duck card. I can't think of one reason to apply for it. Thankfully I somehow have self control and more then enough credit not to.Smiley Sad

@Credit-hoarder

Derogs, paid or unpaid are counted the same but on manual review it does look better.

@coldnmn

I agree. other than a high CL I don't see the appeal. PLUS they would literally rip up my Bruin Alumni Card ESP after last nights thumping.

To each is own. Smiley Sad

Nothing wrong with self control-keeps you out of trouble in the long run. I didn't really need the credit either. I just got caught up in the thread and was one of a few people who offered themselves up as a "lab rat" so-to-speak to see how fair credit would stack up on application. But was also hoping deep-down to hit it big with a high initial CL.

I know the feeling that's how I applied for the ring. Glad I did after I had unexpected pickup repairs had to carry a balance 8% not bad.

Re: Q: App Timing for Best Results

@coldnmn: Is the CL in your signature the one Barclays's gave you when you were approved or have you had a CLI since you've had it?

Re: Q: App Timing for Best Results

I've had two Cl I have gotten an auto CLI every 6 months since I've had it. It will be 18 months next month, they softed me 10/10 so hoping for an increase to $5000. I won't do a hard pull to get it. It took 2 hard pulls to get it. I have 5 total right now with all but 2 to fall off first half 2014.
