Recon sucess for barclay

Hi guys!

I applied for Barclay Carnival card and was denied!
I called for a recon and the guy approved me! But only 500CL!! Lol
But at least I did not waste a hard pull for nothing!! Smiley Happy

I want another Barclay card! The Apple card!
I need advice on this though. Do you think If I apply today and got denied, I will get approved for a Recon? Knowing that I just apply for a card an hour ago and got approved tru recon. Any opinion?

And what credit card company is good with Recon other than Barclay?

Re: Recon sucess for barclay

What baddies do you have?

What other Cards do you have?

 

$500 seems low for Barclay and you have higher TU then me... I got $1300 and I thought that was low, some other posters got 2-3k with lower score then me.

Fico Scores: EQ- 670., TU 710 Sync, EX 728 SoFi(05/04/15)

Re: Recon sucess for barclay

I dont have any baddies. Report is clean. But got 2 credit cards with 75% util. BoA has 600CL and Cap1 has 500 CL both on 75%. BoA opened 02/2010 and Cap1 opened 07/2011. Thats why I guess only $500 for barclay. I want higher though. :/

I would pay down the other cards and hold off apping for another barclays for 6 months.

Re: Recon sucess for barclay

Thanks! Now Im thinking, I should've applied for the Apple! Oh well. I guess its not time for me.
I want more CL for that barclay. 1000 would be nice. When is the best time to call for CLI?

After your util % is down to near 5% I'd try in 4 months.

Re: Recon sucess for barclay

I will try that. I know a member here got approved for Apple card with 1000CL. His util is close to 99%. And he got approved for that CL. Tru RECON though. Lucky!!!
I guess they give 1000 the lowest for Apple card.

Re: Recon sucess for barclay

No not yet. Are they good with RECON? And what CB they pull?
Do they have any CC without annual fee?
