Re: Happy Dance Approval

Congrats OP!


Both my DH and I were approved for a Barclays rewards mc with TU scores around the same (or maybe even lower) than yours is currently, with $1.3k (DH) and $1k initial CLs. DH also has a recent (2013) charge off on his CR. I suggest trying it out, especially if you don't have too many inquiries on TU since I read they're pretty inquiry-sensitive. Barclays has been great so far, great lender to get in with IMO.

Welcome the the NFL family Smiley Wink

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?
