Yes, it reports to all 3 bureaus, balance wise.
It has the 0% APR for 9 months at first, and then I have received quite a few offers for 4.9% apr on BTs.

Let's see if my brain cells can recap.
You have 12 accounts.
Nine of them are less than a year old (and 7 of those are six months old or newer).
The other three accounts are less than a year and a half old.
And you have 13 inquiries - how many inquiries in the past year? in the past six months?
Barclay's Priceline is noted for being one of their easier Barclay's approvals; and often with decent CL's.
Some folks report that Barclay's is sensitive to new accounts and/or inquiries.
Hopefully folks with Priceline experience and lots of new accounts will chime in and help you make a decision.
My kneejerk on this is to wait until you have more age on your many new accounts - maybe six months or so.....

beamMeup: Good advice. I know once we start apping and getting approved we get itchy and want all the prime cards. Since my Zync and Discover approval I'm going to garden for like 2 to 3 years (with the exception of the mortgage that I'll soon be applying for next year). I'd just like to get one high limit credit card and I don't foresee needing any other cards ever. I'm going to baby my cards tremendously. These cards have been a long time coming.
