To signup for credit cards you can click here or on the “other credit cards” tab on top of the DansDeals logo banner to view links for card offers. Then just click on the link to “View all card offers by issuing bank” and scroll down to view all card offers from the bank of your choice.

Pulls from TU in NJ, NY , FL , PA

Recon 866 408 4064 (might pull from Experian)

For those who want to churn and/or want to get the bonus without paying the annual fee: Wait until the A/F gets charged, pay it off with the rest of the bill, and the sign-up bonus will post (at the end of that billing cycle). Then call to close the account and ask to be refunded. They can't charge an A/F for a card you aren't using. You will not lose the miles once they are in your US Airways account.

It seems that if after you use the card you just let it sit unused for a couple months, they will then email you with a targeted offer for 15,000 more points for spending $750 a month for three months.

Sorry for being so dense. This has nothing to do with any sign up bonus or the miles you earn for purchases. It is a special offer (if you want to call it that) that will give you 10k miles for doing a 10k BT in the first 90 days. What am I missing?

Nothing, that is correct

I called Barclays and tried to get a 2nd card approved. They wouldn't budge. AND I first had my mother call ( it was her application) and I guess they asked if they could pull her credit and she said yes- and they had already pulled it twice. I was pretty annoyed at that.
I called back after that and they still wouldn't budge and then the guy tells me he's the same one we just spoke to.


 They want me to build a credit history with them.

 How many times should I try calling? I don't have much experience with Barclays.

           I'm going to wait until tomorrow to try again. Hopefully won't get the same person.


Did you have a good reason to explain why you were applying for a second card?   ---- This is my first applicatoin/contact/relationship I have ever had with Barclays and after explaining why I wanted 2 of the exact same cards they approved me on the spot...

I sure did. I called a few times. They told me there's nothing they can do. They wouldn't move over the credit line from the card I got approved.

How many hard pulls did you wind up getting?

The recon associate told me that he wasn't sure why some people get there credit pulled a second time and some don;t but did tell me that a few things would definitely cause that to happen

1. When you call up recon and claim you have paid down some debt that showed on your first pull they will confirm by pulling again from ex.
2. He stated that Transunion system reads addresses different then ex and eq. For example he told me that if you live in a condo/apartment and list the apt # in the 1st address line instead of the 2nd  (and its listed on your credit report as a 2nd line- which it should be) that transunion system will not be able to match it up and you will be declined..when you call recon they will pull from ex to confirm the address matches one listed on your report.....

not sure if it helps but I found it interesting

Did they give you specific reasoning...ex. not credit worthy , they don't allow 2 of the same cards , anything?

He mentioned a few times they don't give out two of the same card but he basically said to use the first one and first build some history with them. I asked him to move over some of the credit but nada.

They have a US Air biz as well (should be similar signup bonus), but you might get 2 pulls.

Darn. I'm about to book a flight with US Air (I accidentally booked a flight on SW for Aug. 1 instead of 2 and I don't want to miss the Siyum Hashas - So I am dropping the SW reservation (for free - Yay!) and looking for new flight to LAX - US Air is coming cheapest) but don't want to pay for baggage.

What other ways are there to get a free bag with US Air?

I'm about to get the Barclays USAir card - (they are giving me $75 off booking the ticket and a 25k offer - which i prefer to 30k and nothing off).

Is there a second barclays card that is worth trying to do simultaneously in a diff. browser?

I am referring to 25k vs. 30k besides for the 10k for transferring credit - I don't bother with that.

That was the same situation I was in.  I didn't want any of the other cards so I applied for 2 of the US air cards at 40k signup bonus.  I had 2 call recon but got approved for both cards. 1 pull 2 uses = 80k points.

Keep in mind..some people stated that when they call recon they got a second pull...i didn;t but you never know.

So you applied for two of the same exact card?  Did you fill in the ff number, or you left it blank?
