Hi CBers,

 

I have a question for you. DW app'd for the SYNC Home Design CC w/ EX frozen, after numerous calls to finally get to the correct UW department, and getting the right UW, we had them pull TU and she was approved (and on the 2nd call got a CLI, gotta luv SYNC!!! :yahoo: ). So we wanted to each get the Barclay's US Airways CC, she app'd and was Declined. NOW NORMALLY, I'd have her recon. BUT, as she has many new accts in the last 90 days, I am weary of having her call and have an UW look at her file as I have read that Barclay's is very new acct "sensitive". I remember a comment left for me once by someone on here, something about a farm animal getting slaughtered, lol. So I am thinking of letting this one go as to not bring any unwanted attention to her that might result in AA or a CLD. Am I thinking logically? Thanks again for your input!

 

Have a great rest of your week!!!

I app'd a US Air card 31 or 32 days after I received a Barclay Rewards card...and I had 5 new accounts showing. Had to do it through recon.

 

If she doesn't have any existing Barclay cards, there is nothing they can do but say no. She's already taken the HP, I wouldn't let it go to waste. Like everything though, YMMV.

 

They are pushing that card hard, and the 40K miles for $89 is a steal.

What does Sync have to do with Barclays?

 

Always call the UW.

 

Just be aware that Barclays is very sensitive to new accounts

 

and a good chance she still won't get approved.

Just leading into why she app'd, was suppose to be in the garden.

 

Worst case they just reaffirm the "no." Definitely recon.

Thanks. I am not too worried about the decline, I just don't wanna feel the "sting" of Barclay's regarding her 2 new accts she opened with them in early September. I actually wasn't going to have her apply until sometime in January, but just like all of us have to learn the hard way, stop after the first decline. In all honesty, she really needs the CLIs on the 2 existing accts versus this new card, but obviously the approval would be nice as well.

Thanks Konrad!!! I believe you along with CV and Shifter are definitely right, call the UW.

 

Thanks to you all!!!

Oh . Well you left out the part that she has two Barclay cards that are only three months old.

 

I'd still call and try now that the pull is taken. If two of her new accounts are with them, and the new Home Design or whatever isn't showing I think (hope) she'll be ok. Just tell them how excited you are about the US Air merger and how much more you are going to fly US Air/AA in the future so you want to maximize your miles and how happy you are with Barclay services and online portal, customer service ,ficos etc.

 

You know, tell them what they want to hear.

So that being said, let me put all the cards SPECIFICALLY on the table, as I thought that when I said many new accts, that would be enough, lol. She has 15+ new accts since 8/30/14, util is 5%, no derogs, TU 735 (Nov Barclay's FICO). And I literally kinda felt a sting go throughout my body when I saw that decline, made me nervous. Just don't wanna see any AA or CLD as I mentioned.

I have a similar profile, 735 FICO, 9 new accounts since 7/19/14 and was going to apply to get those 40K. I opened an NFL extra points visa 2 months ago that I could close and move the limit if need be.

 

Anyone know when is the last day you can apply for the US Airways MC?

      Hi all.
       
      If you are looking to apply for the Barclays US Airways card and wish to help a brother or sister out by allowing them to refer you for the card, they will benefit from some bonus miles and you will benefit from 50k in miles. The offer is only good until January 18, 2015 so you would need to apply by then and get approved for the referring person to get the bonus miles. If interested, just PM the next person on the list with your email address as the thread moves along. If you are on the list and get a referral, please post and let people know who is next up for a referral. If someone has received a referral, please move to the next person on the list. I will also update the current order and other can help with that too.
       
      So if you apply, please show some love for the following people:
       
      Captivated
      nolanryan
      FromBadtoGood
      mizliz1011
      funkiehouse
       
       
      If you want to offer a referral to a specific person because they helped you with credit repair or you just want to because you want to, then that's okay too. If you want to keep it private, just do it by PM and don't worry about posting in the thread.
       
      If you received the referral email from Barclays and want to be added to the list, please let us know and I will update the order and add you.
       
      If you are not ready to apply now, it looks like the card will be around until March 31, 2015.
       
      Happy apping!!

      I made a mistake and BT into a New Barclays world master card with "0" interest for 15 months by doing the same amount twice. The 2nd BT request just popped on my Barclays transaction and showed me $2000
      over my limit. I spoke to Barclays and was told that since BT went thru, my credit line when the new statement is cut will be the amount that I am over the limit. She said there was no overlimit fee om World Master Card.
      I am a little stunned since when I got the card 7 days ago and I called back door for a higher CL they said NO!

      Noticed this on the Barclays site. Any thoughts on this? Is there a BOA US Air product I don't know about? I think there use to be a BOA US Air debit card...

      Hey Everyone. Happy holidays. Barclays gave me a credit line increase on there own for 650.00. I have had the card for 7 months. Started at 1,000. I called and asked for 10k and was declined. I have no baddies on my TU. Can I call to recon that decision? Let me know.
