Barclays Arrival+ Approved!

Earlier I saw the bonus was increased from 40k to 50k points and AF waived, so decided to give it a try.  Instantly approved for $5k and 23.24% APR (yikes!).  I have 7 TU inquiries in the last 6 months, clean file, 3 years AAOA and 6% util.  I also received the Hawaiian Airlines card in April which has a $20k limit.

Congrats B335is you should definitely call recon and ask for a higher limit + lower rate. I imagine your scores are probably better than mine when I got approved back in March. They actually declined me and I called recon and was able to get an approval for $5k, called again about 10 days later and got them to up the limit to $10k.
