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.

Saw 5k M&M posted to my account and my daughter's account without explanation last week. Received a letter on both accounts explaining that I was eligible for 35k for spending $5k in 90 days from account opening and they only credited me with 30k M&M. I know i signed up with 50k links, so no clue where this came from. Check your Barclaycard account to see if you were credited with the extra 5k.

Weird but nice!
Side note the 30k number isn't way off as the 50k offer is really 20k after one swipe and 30k after 5k spend.
I hope I get this too on my M&M card that I just got.
I'll tell you later

Same here. In the T&C's of the card it says the bonus is 20k + 35k. I even called them out on it a year ago, though I never got the extra points then. Guess they figured it out themselves now.

Now its coming back...I remember having some argument over the 35k and they said, yeah, you get 30 plus the 5k you spent thats 35k.

It's not like that anymore. I guess I won't be getting the extra 5k.
I'll tell you later
