Will a high credit score help me get accepted for more credit?

When you make an application for credit, each lender, including Barclaycard, will score your application based on a number of factors, including:

  • the information in your credit report, which will show how you’ve managed credit in the past
  • any customer records you have with them already
  • information you may have provided on the application form, such as your income
  • their own lending policy rules

A good score provides an indicator of how well you’ve managed your borrowings, based on your credit history, which you can control and manage.
