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.

"The credit pull won't show to chase and amex, correct?"
If where you're from Barclays pulls TU and Chase and Amex don't, then yes, correct.

Hi.  I need some advice about applying for this card. 

I got the Barclays US Airways Card and the US Airways Business Card doing a 2bm a few months ago.  I had to call recon to get the business card approved by shifting half of the credit from the approved consumer card to the business card.  The guy I spoke to told me they didn't instantly approve me for the business card because they gave me all available credit on the consumer card.   How long should I wait before applying for more Barclays credit cards?  I like this Luftansa one and might also consider the Virgin America one as a future 2bm.

Thanks in advance.

What do you do after your dreams come true?

I was not using either card.  However, I recently received the targeted 15k bonus mile offer and switched my kids yeshiva tuition to the US Airways consumer card. 

If I start using the US Airways cards, how long should I wait before doing another 2bm with Barclays to get the Luftansa card?

Thanks.

3 months if consistent charges to the card , as well as payments in full shoud be roughly 6 months from when opens the card , which should be enough

Has anyone succeeded in cancelling the Lufthansa Premier and getting their annual fee refunded?

I'm guessing it would need to be within 60 days?

Is there anyway they can claw-back the miles?

Thanks  ;D

Barclays Miles & More Card
« Reply #56 on: August 14, 2013, 10:17:28 AM »
Didn't see a topic for this card so figured I'll get it going.

Does anyone know if i have to pay the balance to get the bonus points or just spend it?

IIRC there's an existing thread for this card.
