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.

There is an m and m card with no AF. Downgrade to that
I assume that card earns 1 points per $2 spent ?

Will having the no-fee m&m hurt my chances for approval for m&m with fee?
I am sometimes accused of overthinking things. I am still mulling over whether that accusation has merit.

If so I'd rather avoid that. Would the let me downgrade to different family of cards? Ie. No fee arrival or nfl?

Should be an easy phone call to explain to them you don't have that card anymore. That was my experience.

Does that mean they won't let me convert to arrival (no-fee) or NFL?

"Welcome bonus miles are available to new cardmembers only."  is this quote in the Miles and More application terms and conditions enforced?

Downgrade to the barclaycard rewards card, no AF. I actually got a 10k bonus for 1k spend on the downgraded card.

Wouldn't the CashForward be the best option for no-fee?
CashForward 1.5% on everything
Barclay Rewards 1% (2% gas grocery)
Arrival no-fee 1% (2% on Dining & Travel)

They offered 5k for spending 1k. Worth HUCAing further? I can always get the 5k, do the great BT offer and then downgrade within 60 days...?

Lufthansa sent me a message with a business lounge certificate. Is that a benefit from my CC? Will I loose it if I cancel my CC? Can it be sold?
