Applying for the Card
Barclay will usually only approve you for a card every 6 months. If you have a Barclay card, is bet to put some spend on it before applying for another card. They don’t like dormant cardholders. There’s no real limit on the number of cards you can have with Barclay.
They also have a 6/24 rule. That means that they might not approve you if you’ve had more than 6 new cards in the last 24 months. I say might because we’re not sure if it still applies, and even before it was never really a hard rule.
Barclays Arrival Plus basically earn 2.1X miles back on all purchases when you include the 5% redemption bonus. It’s great news for those who missed out on the card when it was available. Now the bonus is even better, at 60,000 miles, but you’ll have to pay the $89 annual fee. The value of the bonus is $511 (after paying annual fee) when redeemed for travel. Other redemption methods give you considerably less value.
