50k offer now

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.

Somehow when redeeming higher amounts, I get more then 1 penny. I can't figure out when and why. I got last month  $550.00 for 45,833 points

"Earn 20,000 award miles after your first purchase and payment of the annual fee"
Is this new?
Also is it true that till you pay the af you don't get that 20k?

Was always like that. If they waive the AF, you will still get it. All about the AF hitting your account.

How long after AF hitting the account do they credit the 20k miles?

Just received the dreaded AF reminder letter on this card today and had no luck tweeting them to waive af like they did last year.
Also tweeted them for the aviator card last week which has posted on my account already and I got goose eggs from them. They are not willing to budge. Not looking promising!

It seems like their system only allows it the first year and that's it
