Auto luv @ 5 1/2 months for me there's a whole thread about Barclay data points CLI's and what they like 


Before you app think...
Have you done your research of the CC?
Does it fit your spending?
Do you have a plan for the bonus w/o going into debt?
Can you afford the AF?
Do you know the cards benefits? Is it worth the HP?

I tried their luv button after I got the card, their CSR called me back right away and told me to wait 6 months and try again.

I was able to get a CLI at activation of $1000 last Aug with my NFL card.

Re: Barclays cli before 6 months??

Barclay's would like to see 6 months of history with them before requested CLIs but I got one via HP on my Barclays Financing VISA requested at 4 months. When speaking to the analyst, was told that they prefer 6 months first.
