Successes and Denials!

So, AmEx declined my 3X CLI, but that's because I have like 13 Inq.  

 

I App'd for a CLI w/ Citi (was at $500), requested an increase to 1K yesterday, they approved it, then requested another one today for $500 and they approved it!  So my Citi limit is $1,500.  My BofA card is at $1500, too!  I requested another $500 and they are pending review.  I also app'd for a Barclay card today and they approved me for a measly $500.  UGH.  

 

Is Barclay even worth having??!  Will they close my Acct. due to numerous Apps.?

 

Thank you my friends!

You need to lay low for the next 6 months no apps or HP's with the Barclay card in your lineup. They will do AA on accounts but its YMMV.
