50k offer now
https://www.barclaycardus.com/apply/Landing.action?campaignId=2257&cellNumber=2&referrerid=PTRBAMMProdPg

Intro APR for 15 months on balance transfers made within 45 days of account opening

Barclays doesn't approve a second card in almost all circumstances.
Iv'e got my wife this card and 3 weeks later applied for US Airways got approved as well without closing first one although only $600 credit line. so YMMV
The way to go is to close your card, wait a week (I can only vouch for a week, might be less), apply for a new card (I can only vouch for a different card, it might not matter. Try it out!) and bam! get approved instantly! (that's what almost all Barclays approvals are)

The evidence is still only from a small number of cases, but it works.

P.S. I don't take responsibility and you can't sue me if it doesn't work.

P.P.S. This is called the SFGM. It's named after the person who helped me discover it.

There are many, many reports of success churning the card without needing a new FFN.

Ask for the annual fee to be waived. It will be. Don't give up after 1 no. The first responders are "relationship managers." They are often unhelpful with the fee. Just ask specifically to speak to "an account specialist." They can waive the fee. If you have trouble getting to an account specialist, you can tell the relationship manager who answers the phone that you were on the line with an account specialist and got disconnected. They should be more than happy to "reconnect" you.

And he didn't take into consideration YQ.
Maybe they don't charge YQ on UA/US?
+1 and they don't charge YQ on lot too.
There is another benefit in miles and more program they constantly have great promos

Not sure we all can get the bonus in time, but if you book by June 30 all NY or Chicago to Poland routes on LOT are on sale for 55,000 miles ROUNDTRIP in BUSINESS class with no fuel surcharge.

These are the active promos

another great use of Miles & More is that if you make your home adress in Israel
you can fly from TLV to ZRH/FRA for 15k if it's booked les than two weeks in advance and your travelling
for atleast 1 week, the cheapest way to go from Israel to Europe RT!
plus IIRC there are no blackout dates in this case there's always availabilty!!

Just to point out another bonus of the m&m program they have a cheaper price for children between 2-11

does the 5k offer not contain that language?
this is a standard Barclay's bait n switch, but some apps don't contain it.
