Just called in to try to downgrade; got the whole shtick with losing miles and that I can't so I said I guess I'm going to have to close the card. I spent $1 and I'm supposed to be getting the $25 for paperless coming in the mail. After 5 min. Being put on hold, he came back and said we are putting an alert on you. How bad is that? And can I cash the check when it comes even though I closed the account?

no but I kinda said I understand that I shouldn't deposit it because I don't have the card anymore. But what is this alert that he Told me? Are they on the look out for me every time I apply now?

Two Questions for this card:

My wife got the Mile and More and Barclays Arrival about a month ago, is there any point in trying for this card - Should i close one first and transfer credit to the other and then apply for the card and offer to transfer credit to the new card or should i keep both open and then when applying offer to close one down - does it make any difference? Or will i get rejected either way and i shouldnt even try.

Number two:

I got the US airways card for myself about three weeks ago, is it worth waiting for the points to clear, transfer the miles and then close the card down (transferring the credit to my Arrival card)? how long after i close it down should i wait or am i also probably not going to get accepted?

TIA - I am not a churner but I am trying to complete an itinerary and i need AA points!

There certainly is a point. A) Card is going away B) Big bonus and all you need to do is make a 1st purchase. How you do it I dont think matters as from my experience with Barclays they don't care how many products you have. Especially if its just 2-3. If they do reject her she can always use her current cards to try and move CL around.

Wait for points to be in the account and then feel free to close it. Lots of mixed comments on how fast you'd be able to get approved again for it. (Sounds like your question is how long after closing it can you reapply). You can always try and then go from there.

Really? They dont care if my wife already has two of the cards and not wants a third? Cool! Question how long should I wait, as most probablyt I will not have time to churn this card for her, so you think i should just wait as long as possible and hten right beofore they discontinue it i should apply (you think it will help my chances or with Barclays it wont make a difference) Thansk!

It is very unclear when the card will discontinue. In theory it could go away any day now. So even though you might not be able to churn it, the sooner you apply the higher the chances of actually getting it.

You should def be prepared to answer why you do need it in case they ask but having 2 or 3 diff Barclays cards is very common in the community.

This card is US miles not AA, and US miles won't be merged into AA until March.
