Got 5k on Apple.  Then declined for NFL after like 45-60 days.  I would wait.  They are not the easiest nut to crack.

I think people have said 90 days or something is minimum but they are really weird about having a 2nd card.

Typically they want 6 months between your first and second card, but have seen as little as 4 months.

Is this true for regardless of what your CS is? Or is it only for certain products?

They told me my TU Fico was over 720 (A no brainer for most) and they did not care.  No 2nd card for me.  Plently of income in relation to available CL

Re: Getting multiple barclays cards!!

Yes, you can have 2 Barclay cards. 

 

I got my Priceline card in February and then, without thinking, applied for the Sallie Mae card in May and got the 7-10 day message.

 

I just knew they were going to deny me for the Sallie Mae because it had been too soon since I had gotten the Priceline. I immediately called for recon even though I hadn't gotten a decision yet. Backdoor rep manually approved it for me though, but said I should've waited at least 6 months. I got lucky big time. 

 

Don't make my mistake, wait for at least 6 months!
