Here is the promo if anyone is interested. Get $400 in either NFL gear or statement credit if you spend $1K in 90 days. Basically 40% Cash back on everything and you can get a cool looking card depending who your favorite team is LOL...I think this might be the best offer I've seen in a while even better than $300 Chase Freedom offer last year.

Anyone have any idea what scores might qualify? In the fine print it talks about offering other cards (with different benefits) if you don't qualify for the World MasterCard.
Which CRA does Barclay's check?
In other words, I'd love to hear opinions on how tough this card might be to get. Thanks...

Does anyone know if Barclays will do a PC? I want get this card, cash out, then PC to the priceline card. Anyone know if this is possible?

No PC with Barclay in most cases. Rare reports of PC seem to involve end of life products (I.e. a discontinued card).
They are good with reallocation, though. If you leave this card open and app for the Priceline when you are ready -- if they aren't prepared to give you additional credit, they will allow you to move the line to the Priceline and close this one. You'll get a new tradeline though. Or if they approve you for another card without requiring closing, you could still move this limit to that one when closing.
Thats one of the easier ways to get a big limit out of Barclay. Don't close old cards, reallocate to new ones.

Barclays pulls TU. The NFL cards are Signature/World MC (5k limits), but if you don't qualify for that, the may approve you for the platinum version, with a lower limit. Barclays also does not do PC, if you want to change to a Priceline card later, you will prob have to apply for one, then move the Credit line over. Barclays is sensitive to too many new accounts, and if you have a lot, you may have to recon to get approved.
