Chances for approval on Arrival card?

Ok, so I have stayed away from Barclay because of all the negative things I have read on here about cld's and closures. The arrival card is very much tempting me. I've been moving more towards the travel cards and was just approved about 2 weeks ago for the Southwest Premier. I want to get in on this signup bonus but I want to make sure I have a chance of approval. I really want it to be the world mastercard. So what do ya'll think? My info in my sig is correct. My total utilization is 14%. It will lower by mid March. My oldest cc account is about 18 month's old. No installment account, no negatives. So what do y'all think? Will this bonus probably be around a while? Thanks for your time input.

How is your TU inquiries? Was it pulled for your Southwest Premier? If your TU is clean of inquiries for the past 6mo I think you have a good chance depending on your income. What is your income?

WALLET: Amex BCP 25K | Barclay Arrival Plus WEM 19K | Ink Plus 25K

SOCKS DRAWER: Slate 10K | CrapOne 1.7K

I see that you said you oldest CC is 18 months old. How many cards did you apply for in the last 6 months? And how many INQs do you have for each CB?

OP said about 10 on TU... but only last 12 months count and really only last 6 months I think Barclay would care about... so any then?

Yea I saw that, I was trying to figure how many in a 6 month frame. I think that may be the determining factor in their approval. If it's under 3, I would say yes, otherwords, I would strongly say no as Barclays is really sensitive to INQs.

Re: Chances for approval on Arrival card?

Ok, I just looked. I have 12 inquiries on TU. Only one in the past 6 months. But I have added the SW card which is not showing up yet and the CSP and BOA travel cards in the past 6 months. All at 5k limits.
