Should I Recon a 2nd time??

I got declined for a Barclay's reward cc & got declined =(, to high balances & low credit limits.  I called to recon & told them I just paid 1/2 down this week & it didn't show up on the report they pulled.  The analyst said he could'nt do anything at this time & that I would have to apply in 3 months, Boo!! Should I recon again? what are my chances??

Re: Should I Recon a 2nd time??

I would call again.  There's been many instances where people have needed to call two or three times to over turn a decision.

 

Barclays seems to be very reasonable, just give them a call and keep us posted :smileyhappy:   (make use of that inquiry!!!!)

Your score is 640 AFTER you paid them down?  What else on your report is keeping your score down?

Hi Clocktick,

 

my score of 640 is before I paid them down, just paid it on Monday of this week, so I'm going to do another credit pull next month, hopefully this will boost it up.
