Sallie Mae Barclaycard

Postby JMR » Sat Mar 22, 2014 12:24 am

I am looking into the Sallie Mae card, I understand that it is a student card but I've read it's somewhat hard to get? I have 2 months of Credit history with my Discover IT and have payed on time and under 10% utilization. Also I recently (2 weeks ago) just was approved for a car loan (co-sign with Dad) so I'm not sure if that would be too much new credit in a short amount of time for a Barclaycard. Do you think around the 6 month mark I will have a shot at getting this card. 5% cash back on gas up to $250 a month which is good for me because $1000 a year on diesel and having that 5% off would be nice.
Citi AAdvantage Platinum Select- $5000 (3/15)
American Express Gold- NPSL (3/15)
Chase Freedom- $1200 (3/15)
Nordstrom- $1500 (9/14)
Discover IT- $1000 (2/14)

TCL: $8700

FICO (TU)- 716 (3/15)

Barclay does like to see 6 months of credit card history before they will approve, Give them six months of good history with the Discover It and you should be good to go...
