Got Approved for Barclays Rewards World Mastercard!!!

[ Edited ]

I got pre-selected offers for Barclays Rewards World Mastercard from the mail last weeks. The terms are pretty good.  0% purchases on APR for 12 months , 14.99% APR after that.  Earn 10,000 points after first purchase or balance transfer and earn extra 10,000 points after spending $750 within 90 days. Earn 2 points per $1 on gas, groceries and utilities. I applied online on Sunday and I didn't get instant approved. I called the backdoor number and I talked to a nice credit analyst. He told me he could process my application right away. He asked me the annual income, and my occupation. He also asked why I have so many cards within 2 years and it's for rewards. I told him I usually pay my card in full. He put me on hold for a minute. He told me I was approved for $5K.  I thought they were going to deny my appication because of the inquiries.

Thanks. I have 11  inquiries within 2 years. I haven't checked my score lately. I think it's around 740-750. They pulled TU.

I also have Travelocity Amex. I didn't think I was going to get approve. I got denied for iTunes card last year.  I heard they don't like too many new accounts.

Thanks!!I think it's almost the same and some extra benefits for World Mastercard. The World MC has no pre-spending limit and extra perks.By the way, I still couldn't get approved for BBVA Compass Clearpoints MC. It still told me I got a negative from EWS.  I already called EWS and they told me I don't have any negative. I called BBVA Compass and they told me they couldn't do anything to override.
