Welcome to your new Barclaycard Rewards....

It has been a year since I tried applying for any type of credit. I felt my scores are finally getting decent enough to apply. FICO EQ at 669. I finally tried for the Barclaycard that I have been reading about...and to my great surprise, I was instantly approved with CL of $1500.00!!! This is my highest credit limit card now!!!

 

I am sooo excited! this gives me hope toward improvements! I plan to only use this at 1% util and this should help my overall util as well.

 

I tried for Chase Freedom and was denied w/ recon fail. no more attempts for now

 

PS

I need to relax as my rental lease ends and will be looking to apply for rental within the next 4 months

Re: Welcome to your new Barclaycard Rewards....

Congrats 

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?

Congrats.  Don't go on an App spree or you'll find yourself without a card.
