Re: Getting multiple barclays cards!!

So they want at least 6 months in between cards then? or longer?

I might be interested in another Barclays card, but having to deal with them sounds a little too troublesome for what it's worth.

I app'ed for the Arrival (my 4th, and likely my last Barclay) about 2 months after the NFL card.  It was pending review for about 10 days before finally being approved.  Prior to that, I had called recon for my NFL card, which was eventful enough that I'm sure they have extensive notes on the call.  I seem to get better results with Barclay without reconning.  


This is really YMMV, since my friend who applied for the Arrival at around the same time under almost indentical circumstances was declined.
