I usually don't emulate fico members (at least not B&T or FMC or any of the garden cultists), but Nixon posts here too (and 09 likes him about as much as she liked me which is a plus), so decided to apply.
So I got a denial- 7 to 10 day message, but definite denial on status page. Damn! I thought... wasted HP. Or maybe not because a week later, it still hasn't shown upon any of my CR's (they usually pull TU but have checked all three). So did I just get an Amex style soft pull? For those who don't know, for current cardholders, Amex will check their most recent soft pull and will only hard pull you if they approve.I'm assuming Barclay used their soft pull they got when updating my FICO score a week earlier, but I'm not sure.
If so... this is the first time I've ever seen this.
When was the last time you apped for a Barclay card? Maybe that may have something to do with it or you're at your max with them with credit. i'd call their 24/7 recon line to see.
