Embarrassing is probably the wrong word. Now that I think about it, that’s insensitive to what many others here on the forums experience. More like hurt pride. I felt invincible, thinking that Capital One was my only Krypton.

Well Capital One and Barclays have something in common... two idiot banks in my book.


Not really idiot banks, just strict underwriting trying to prevent bonus churning. On a business level, I can't blame them. It still sucks getting denied though if you really want the card.


They're idiots to us, the ones applying, but yeah I understand it's simply business.  The card doesn't appeal to me outside of the SUB, so it's a fair explanation.

I forgot about that and now i feel absolutely terrible

 

So, when will you be below 6/24? 


No need to feel terrible at all!  LOL

 

I'll be down to 5/24 in October and below 5/24 in November.  May as well hold out for some Chase goodness if I don't get a green checkmark first, or if something else tempting doesn't come first (like a visit to City National Bank in Manhattan with check stubs and bank statements in hand for a Crystal Visa Infinite).


I'll be down to 2/24  in November (8/24 now Smiley Sad. ) I'll never make it unscathed. 

 

I still feel terrible. You want me to apply for Amex as an act of contrition?

Can use Amex if you go through PayPal. Just make sure payer and payee are unrelated and have different addresses. Otherwise Amex will shut you down.

You guys know what will happen to me for stealing the spotlight? 

 

Yeah, I thought so.

 

Sorry again, K. I marked November on my calendar for you.

I think the next dinner party might be a little awkward. But if you want to find a 100,000 MR offer for a Platinum, you’d really be doing yourself a favor, not me. Smiley Wink

Edited for reply that posted while I was typing: You ARE the spotlight. Again, no need for apologies! Now I wonder how much the wager was.

Re: Barclaycard Arrival Plus denied with 816

Ouch that really stinks, I'm sorry! With your scores like yours my pride would take a hit too. Although missing out on that $700 would hurt me more I think lol
I somehow snuck in with Barclays with 7 new accounts in less than a year and a score not even close to 816. I think I caught them on a good day or day drinking lol But I'm not getting to attached to my card in case they sober up and see the error of their waysSmiley Very Happy
