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.

Not sure if its mentioned elsewhere but I recently applied for a Barclays US Airway Card with 40k bonus after first purchase. I wanted to do a 2/3/ browser method if I was going to have the inquiry anyway but could not find any other card that I would want. I ended up applying for the same card using 2 browser method. Got 2 letters in the mail saying I was declined ( High balances on credit report),called reconsideration line, spent a few minutes explaining the balances and was approved for 1 card (didn't mention 2nd app)..called back 2 days later and was approved for 2nd app (same exact card) and bonus confirmed.  2 first purchases will be 80k miles with 1 credit pull.

Did you put in two different FFN's?

I have done US Air in past in space of 6 months (not 2BM). I had put same FFN both times and have received both times on same FF account. with US Air mastercard, you donot need to create separate FFN account for each application.

Did you have to close your existing account to (re)apply?

No. I didnt close any existing account to get it approved. But I keep all my Barclay credit on Choice Priviledge VISA, which is no annual fee credit card. with Barclay we have limited choice of cards. so I keep all existing credit line on Choice Priviledge. So to get this approved, I had to move some of the CL from that card to get this one approved.

866-369-1283. Connects directly to analyst. It works same as any major card. Answer few questions. Be prepared to move CL, if you have open cards. Be prepared to close as well. Good luck.

My wife and I have each done recons in the last few months; no second pull, only TU.  In each case, we used the same FFNs that we used previously; received the 40K bonus miles again.

How soon after receiving denial letter did you call in? Maybe it has something to do with the elapsed time between app and recon?

I just did a 2BM for 2 USairways cards-  one was automatically approved.

   It seems like it would almost be better if it hadn't been because now if I call up won't they deny it because of applying for the same card I have already?

 Will telling them I need 2 separate cards work with Barclays?

Did anyone do the balance transfer for 10000 miles?  Can you do it if you don't have debt?
