Well that blows a hole in the "6 months" that Barclays supposedly keeps an eye on you after approval. You're well over 6 mos, almost a year. Guess they don't really have a timeframe.
15 accts in 3 mos is a lot! At least they called you instead if your just getting AA'd.

You're lucky. Most people got shut down without warning. I'm glad they didn't close my Barclays Travelocity Amex when I got approved too many accounts last year. They asked me why I opened so many accounts last year when they approved my Barclays Rewards MC. I told them it's for rewards. They're sensitive for inquiries, utilization and new accounts. By the way, they closed my Visa account when they were Juniper.

guess what? I just got home to find a letter from hsbc that they have closed my bestbuy store card. But its ok it was my only cap1 card i had and it had a 400cl so i dont care and hadnt even used it at all since i got it 06/15. Heck it hadnt even reported yet.
hope others don't follow suit. For sure keep your util low and PIF before any stmts cut so bals don't report, except maybe on one cc. Stay under the radar for a good 6 mos and don't even CLI with anyone.
