Re: Easiest Barclays CC to get??

+1 Apple Financing.  A lot of the approvals come on recon, so call them up after you apply if it's not an instant approval.

 

Don't be afraid to ask for a larger limit than anything you currently have.  When I apped for mine I told the credit analyst I was planning to buy the latest top of the line Macbook Pro and asked for $5000.  They gave me $2000, but considering my highest limit at the time was $500, I considered that a solid win.

 

So they're pretty generous with credit lines, even if you don't get exactly what you ask for.
