Barclays Recon SUCCESS!

As I type this from my brand new MacBook, I am happy to report than thanks to this forum I called the Barclay's recon number after being flat out denied online. Answered a few questions about my income and one question about an old CO and in less than five minutes went from denial to a $2,000 CL! This forum is full of great info!! I never would have thought to call about a reconsideration before. I just thought no meant no.

Starting: EQ 498
Current: EQ 652 (4/24/13) TU 662 (4/22/13) EX 630 (4/12/13)
Goal: over 700 across the board!

Congrats on the approval and new MAC

Before you app think...
Have you done your research of the CC?
Does it fit your spending?
Do you have a plan for the bonus w/o going into debt?
Can you afford the AF?
Do you know the cards benefits? Is it worth the HP?

Re: Barclays Recon SUCCESS!

Same happened to me but for a different barclays card. Reconning wasnt as hard as it seemed.  Congrats on both the Mac and the approval

Re: Barclays Recon SUCCESS!

I tried to recon for a Barclays NFL card but was still denied...for too many inquires. I only had 6. I'll try again in a year. Glad I'm getting denied for inquires now instead of more serious baddies!
