Barclays - Moving Credit Limits

I have a Barclays Apple card with a CL of $1400.  I don't they don't PC this particuar card.  But does anyone know if I can move that CL over to my Barclays US Air card that I also have and then just close the Apple card?  Down the road, I wouldn't mind having their rewards card, but I don't want to apply for it now since I already have two of their cards - i'm guessing three would be considered too many for them.

Barclays USAir World MC $8300 - DCU $7500 - USAA World MC $7000 - PayPal Extras MC (GE) $5500 - Chase Saphire Preferred $5000 - Discover It $5000 - Barclays Sallie May $2700 - Chase Freedom $1000 - Capital One $8500 (business) - store cards ranging from $500-$9500

Yes, you can. Call the backdoor number. I was able to move a $4000 Juniper line and get a $5000 CLI at the same time. This increased my total Ring credit line to $14,000 in one phone call.

 

Good luck!
