injustifiiable's review: Callout Comment Thought I'd bite on a pre-approved offer at the end of a small app spree.

Since I already had an open Barclaycard, my app was automatically tagged for review. I called the backdoor number right away and was connected to a credit analyst.

After answering questions about my employment, income, and a couple of baddies on my TU report, the analyst told me he was able to approve me for $800. That was okay for my needs so I thanked him and hung up.

Fast forward a few days later....I get the Welcome email from Barclays and the new account was added to my existing online profile...with a credit limit of $1,050! 12 months 0% APR then 24.99 after. Have only had the Barclaycard Rewards account barely a month now.

Wow! Wasn't expecting that at all...thanks Barclays!

Remarks Give Barclays some time, they do auto cli's, usually every 6 months to a year. They are pretty good, and reward you, if you treat them well
