Approved with CL of $1500. Kept my $1300 limit on the Apple card. I have no problem with this in that it's my last card and going into Garden mode for the next few years.
I called in the app but that didn't make any difference since I could have done everything online much quicker. Right after I hung up with her (she didn't tell me I was denied--just gave me the 30 day routine) I called the recon number. Answered the usual questions and was approved.
Got a lecture about them wanting to see some 6 - 12 month history on my Apple card before raising my limit (which I didn't ask for anyway).
I did preface my phone app by asking if they would have issue with an existing new card with them and they stated that they didn't (but I don't know how much a CSR would know about that). I got the impression with her usage of the word "them" and "they" that Barclaycard utilizes a vendor to take their phone apps.
That's it. I'm done! Wheww!
