points can be used for the AF.

Statement credits: If you have the exact number of points or more required to wipe away a charge, you can wipe away the entire charge.  If you have fewer than the exact number of points, you can only redeem in 2500 point/$25 increments.

Example: If you have an $87 charge, and 9000 points, you can wipe away the entire $87 charge.  If, however, you only have 8000 points, you can only wipe away $75 worth of the $87 charge (2500 point/$25 increments x 3).

+1

I'm itching already for an app-o-rama.

Did anyone ever have more success on a weekday because there are more HUCA options available?

From the T&C:

Benefits will vary depending upon the card for which you are approved. Not everyone will qualify for the World MasterCard credit card and its benefits... you may receive a Platinum card which has fewer benefits.
A typical Barclays' bait-and-switch...

Not miles. They're statement credits for travel spend.

And IMO, this is a very solid card, AF excluded

Any travel expenses. They're not literally 'miles'.

And the "major" bloggers are now blogging about it, with, of course, their own commissioned link.  Hmmm

Doesn't make it a bad deal. They all blog about the Ink and it's a great card.
Plus its the only newsworthy new card in a while.

After a closer look, it seems like it only refers to the the card's benefits, and not the sign-up bonus. Though, i could be wrong...

I'm thinking I might include this one in my next AOR. Looks pretty sweet. Hopefully it will be as churnable as Barclays' others cards.

Why is that?
Because things changed my dear. Read the Barclays US Air thread.

Errr. I haven't following that thread closely. So they are no longer easily churnable? I see you said in that thread that you got one in February?

Yes, but the time before that was 6 months prior, and i was declined for an app i did between the two. Basically, they more often than not decline you if they see too many recently opened cards. (As a matter of fact, i was already declined for this cards - despite my stellar credit score - and Barclays recon usually doesn't get you far.)

I hear ya. They look at recently opened cards from all issuers or just Barclays?
Either way, if you can get one every 6 months and get the bonus, doesn't that still make them more churnable than most other cards?

All issuers. Again, this is just my personal experience...

Lol! No!
Chase cards (most of them) can be churned as often as you want.
With Citi you might be right.
Regarding Amex, even with the new restriction, considering their variety, and the biz and personal aspect, they still beat Barclays by far.
Either way, you said you hope this card will be as churnable as the USAir card, so i just wished it'll be better...  :)

Aha. I was under the impression that Chase only gives the bonus once on most cards. I'm still trying to work my way through my first of all of their cards so I haven't yet churned any of them :)
I had heard that the USair card was the easiest to churn....
L'chaim to the Barclaycard being super churnable :)
