I'm not an expert, but I do believe you will be accepted. Barclays almost always pulls TU, and your TU score is good, and -- most important -- you have no inquiries for the past 12 months there. Barclays is very sensitive to inquiries. They will like you.

 

IMHO you're good to go.

As far as I know, Barclay's doesnt work like some other banks where they will give you a lower tier version in some cases. You either get approved for the card, period, or you don't. They won't issue a non World Elite version of the card.

Re: Barclays World Elite Mastercard Approval Odds?

The reason I was asking this question because what I see in fien prints on their website

 

"Offer subject to credit approval. Not everyone will qualify for the World Elite Mastercard credit card and its benefits. If at the time of your application you do not meet the credit criteria previously established for this offer, or the income you report is insufficient based on your obligations, we may not be able to open an account for you or you may receive a Platinum card. Benefits will vary depending upon the card for which you are approved."

 

So it looks if I am not eligible for World Elite, they will give me World and if not World then Platinum?
