Applying for the CardBarclaycard Arrival Plus® World Elite Mastercard®
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. 60,000 miles are worth $600 and now you don’t have to pay the annual fee. You can read my review here.
