Re: Barclays World Elite Mastercard Approval Odds?

I have a datapoint from one my colleague - Opened Arrival+ 19 months back, closed it 7 months back (with Annual Fee refunded), applied yesterday again and was instantly approved. Hope this helps.

Re: Barclays World Elite Mastercard Approval Odds?

I know Barclays is inquiry sensitive but how long between inquiries should someone wait?

I am not sure but as far as I know anything more than 3 or 4 on TU within last 12 months is not a good sign for Barclay..
