whoo hoo. Barclays recon approved

I called the backdoor number after getting the online rejection, a few quick questions with a lovely lady (they really are the nicest people) about my job and BK, she approved me for a $1k limit on the rewards card :smileyhappy:

 

this is the best limit to date since BK and i will most likely be dropping the Orchard/Cap1 card next july before the AF hits (Orchard wil not budge on waiving/reducing that AF)

 

thank you to all the information on these boards .... i'm not pushing my luck with any more apps for awhile, gonna garden for a bit again 



Starting Score 12-2011: EX 640 FAKO TU 550 FAKO 6-2011
Current Score 3-2012: EX 635 TU 603 myFICO 3-2012 EQ 670 MyFICO
Goal Score: 720

Re: whoo hoo. Barclays recon approved

Was it just a Barclays card or was it one thats co-branded? I know they have an Apple one and an MTV one.



Current: Eq- 624 Ex - 631 (lender pulled) TU - 661 (lender pulled)
