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.
Now they also added the following language:
In addition, you may not be eligible for this offer if, at any time during our relationship with you, we have cause, as determined by us in our sole discretion, to suspect that the account is being obtained or will be used for abusive or gaming activity (such as, but not limited to, obtaining or using the account to maximize rewards earned in a manner that is not consistent with typical consumer activity and/or multiple credit card account applications/openings).
Barclays Arrival Plus basically earn 2.1X miles back on all purchases when you include the 5% redemption bonus. 70,000 miles are worth $700 and now you don’t have to pay the annual fee. This is 10,000 more miles than the previous best bonus that was available until today. It’s worth asking to get matched to this offer, if you recently applied for e lesser bonus.
