Ready to app

Postby FutureBillionaire » Mon Feb 04, 2013 11:37 am

I'm due for a mini app spree. My last one was 6 months ago. My utilization is low and my score is high. I will probably only do two apps. I'm thinking about that priceline visa to get 2% on everything. If I can find a good deal or promo, I will get something else as well.

Just remember, Barclays can take offense to serial appers like us. I would be the poster child for that, though, and I got a Barclay's in December but with a 2k limit that will probably not go up anytime soon. So they may give you the card but penalize you with the limit.

The good news is they are one of the easier lenders to recon with if you're denied. But if they feel like spurned lovers, well as the saying goes hell hath no fury.....

I don't need the card enough to recon. I can get some gift cards somewhere before I do all of that. I will keep biding my time, I guess. Maybe I will look at the FIA Amex instead.
