The two cards that are secured are not good at all (no graduation). Applied only reports 2CRA. Matrix reports all three but highh fees start at a year. So I would like to get rid of those cards and have two that grow. I got one Paypal. I have app to barclay, sears ( wasnt thinking EQ no score) shopping cart Victoria Secret. Barclay is a decline via online app status. Sears 30 day message. VS was 7 day message. I am in need of suggestions. What should my next move be? I did my small spree and now I am done apping my goal is Auto loan and I tried very hard to keep experian Iquiry free. I called citi app line( auto prompts says no record of app) so probably have the wrong number. Do I recon?App? or just leave it a what I got (it is what it is)?

If the goal is a new car, then I would remain app free until then. Your newest account was opened this month and you'd want that to age a few months before applying for anything else.

I will be calling barclays in a less than an hour when I have a moment. Also from what I read that the 7-10 message an Vicotia Secret is prob a need to verify more info. Anyone have a nubmber I could call for that one. Also Do anyone have a number to check the status of sears card( citi application status number say no recored of application)
alot of the inquiries on my files are from late july early august when I attemted to purchase a vehicle

I was so nervos when I called Barclay card. But approved 1k limit. Only was concerned about all inq in august. This site is awesome!!! So I go and call citi/sears or VS or just leave it be? NO loss inq for VS soft pull. Citi was but very limited history only 4 months on equifax so not sure if that even warrants a call.
