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.

Is it worth applying if I did an AOR last week?

-My AOR did not include any Barclays cards or known TU pullers.
-I currently have Arrival and US.
-They denied me for this card the last time this offer came around due to it being my third recent barclays card with no history.
I remember when a coke was a nickel, and you could buy VRs in OD.

No need to downgrade or cancel, just ask a rep to waive the fee.
@meshugener if I got the  card in july then could I still get fee waived?

If the new accounts haven't shown up on your CR yet, I'd say it's worth a shot.

No need to downgrade or cancel, just ask a rep to waive the fee.

same for arrival? if i were to churn instead to get another bonus, do i need to wait a certain amount of time? ( ill prob downgrade the card just to keep the CL and not hurt my CS too much)
