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.

There is a trick to book a tix up to one
Year out , and then you can cxl and redeposit
Points For IIRC $50 fee ,

Then you must use the  read deposited points within the next quarter that I am believe starts January March  and you can extend for over a year for $50 .
Call them to explain to you exactly how it is done, well worth $50 for 55,000 miles
Anybody know if this still works?

Has Lufthansa extended the expiration date for their lounge vouchers?
I am sometimes accused of overthinking things. I am still mulling over whether that accusation has merit.

Dan wrote in this post that Miles & More points expire after 36 months unless you have the CC. Once you close the card, does the 36 months start from closure date or from the date they were acquired?
You also need to use the card every month, btw
how does it work? as long as i use the card the miles do not expire or it extends it for some time period?
If it benefits even just one fellow DDFer, its worth posting it.

You need to use it every single month, never skip a month. It’ll keep extending expiration of the miles you’ve earned to another 36 months out from that usage. But if you ever miss a month, it’s over, and your 36 month clock starts ticking.

Thanks!
I have 3k points listed as expiring soon, is that over?
and what about the rest of my points will it help if i start using the card now?

You should cash them out any way you can, because they’re toast. And no. :(
