points can be used for the AF.

Statement credits: If you have the exact number of points or more required to wipe away a charge, you can wipe away the entire charge.  If you have fewer than the exact number of points, you can only redeem in 2500 point/$25 increments.

Example: If you have an $87 charge, and 9000 points, you can wipe away the entire $87 charge.  If, however, you only have 8000 points, you can only wipe away $75 worth of the $87 charge (2500 point/$25 increments x 3).

I don't believe so but please review my plan and cmiiw:

I have 56,096 points, and booked a business select flight for $568.55. When it posts in a few days I will get 1,173 points pushing me up to 57,269. I will then redeem 56,855 points for $568.55 statement credit, dropping me to 414 points. I will get a 5% bonus on that redemption, 2,843, bringing me up to 3,257. I will then have my 1,173 clawed back, dropping me to 2,084 which is still a positive balance. I will close my card with this balance.
try getting a different one for $20 more. Otherwise you are just leaving those on the table.

He was saying that you should have tried to find a flight for $588 instead of 568. That way you can redeem all your points

how long do you have to wait in order to get approved after closing the card?

Great question.

Any data points on this?

How is Barclays with churning the CL a few times per month?
What are the typical CL they give for s/o with good credit.

I am having a super tough time getting approved for another Arrival + and not sure if I should keep trying. Here are my details:
1) I cancelled my first A+ more than 6 months ago
2) I am being declined because of opening too many cards (with other banks) in the past few months and they "want to see more usage on my other cards
3) I was declined twice with two recons all for the same reason.

I'll also add that I have one other Barclay Lufthansa card - they refuse to transfer credit from that card to open a new Arrival+ too. In other words, they are being a huge PITA, but is it worth it to keep trying nonetheless, maybe speak to a manager or something?

with barclays its very hard to get approved for a card with them if you already have a barclays  card, especially if you dont have high usage on the one you already have.

Are you saying it's easier to close your cards, wait a little and then apply?
