Congrats.  I so want to pull the trigger on this card.  Which one did you get 20k bonus and no af?


I chose the one with the 40,000 bonus for $1000 spend over 90 days. The annual fee is waived the first year and I can downgrade before it renews, so it was a no-brainer.


I couldn't agree with you more.  I was asking because I saw your CL at 4k and was curious if they gave out the WMC with less than a 5k cl. 


Nope, I was issued the platinum.  I had called to ask if it was possible to be bumped up to $5k/WMC level but they said once a card has been approved, they never change levels.  So even if someone were to receive a CLI to $5k, they won't switch cardholders over to the WMC.  Kinda weird.

Re: Arrival has..arrived!

Yea Barclays is weird like that. That's why it's important to ask for a CLI right away upon approval if the CL is below 5k. They can still make the changes within the first few days of approvals, if the CLI request is approved. However sometimes they would require another separate HP for the CLI request

Depending on the value you place on the cost of an inquiry and new account, being approved initially for the Platinum is a positive.  The reason is because you could apply again for the Arrival and use "upgrading to WC" as a reason during recon.  If approved, you'll receive an additional 40K bonus.
