1) I applied for this card but got the message
We apologize for the inconvenience, but our website is experiencing technical issues.
Please contact us at 1-866-419-6437 or try again later.
What does this mean? What should I do?


Check your application status by visiting http://www.myapplicationstatus.com/

At Barclays, if you already have an online account, the card can also show up there before you get a notification from them. Obviously, that won't work if you don't yet have an online Barclays account from another card. But if it's not your first US card, you presumably do have an online account already.

2) What's the reconsideration line number?

866-408-4064. Only open M>F, 8am>5pm, Eastern.

3) How long after my first purchase does it take for the bonus miles to post in my account?

Miles for the first-purchase bonus post with the statement showing the initial purchase.

4) For those people who got the targeted offer, how long after spending $750 in each of the 3 months does it take for the bonus miles to post in my account?

Miles posts two months after the end of the promotion period. For example, if your promo was to spend in June, July and August, the 15k bonus would post with October statement.

5) How can I get the anniversary 10K bonus points without paying the annual fee?

The annual bonus posts on the statement date of the month of anniversary. No need to "kick out" a statement. But if you are worried, you can put a few bucks on the card during that cycle thus generate a statement but it is NOT necessary.

AF is billed the last business day of the month of the anniversary (much better than Chase practice which is on the 1st day of the month). You have 60 days to cancel the card for the AF to be reversed. You also can use SM to cancel card and no need to call.

Note: I called to cancel the card (June, 2014), told them it was because the AF was too high, and they waived it. Still got the 10,000 points and the Companion Certs!!

Just got instant approved for 7.5K credit line on my 2nd US Air card. Opened first in May 2012, same size credit line. Initially I spent $10 on the first card, but the last week or so I've spent ~$200 in preparation for calling Barclay's recon line. Guess I won't have to do that!

If you have a card open already and get a second will you get the sign up bonus? It seems the answer is yes but the wording in the T&C seems to indicate otherwise.

Based on the experience of many here, including myself, you will get the bonus for a second card. The catch is that the second card must receive instant approval if you still have the first one open. Barclay's recon is generally unwilling to give you a second of the same card.

Hi,
I applied for Barclays bestwestern and wyndham cards in the last 3 months. Do you think I can apply for a US air card now or should I wait for the 6 months period to happen with respect to the last barclays application?
Please help.
Thanks.

How many TU pulls do you have, and how much would it bother you if you got rejected?

I was able to get a 3rd Barclays card (I have 2 open US Air cards, just got the $400 cash back NFL card). But I had to call reconsideration. I think I got lucky. But I was willing to take the risk because my score is over 800 on Transunion, and I don't have many pulls there.

The worst they can say is no. And hearing no is not the end of the world.

Whoa.... then why should anyone bother getting the card the second time and carrying two cards at the same time? Nobody said anything about having to be auto approved. If that is the case, then there is no point calling the "recon" number and saying "need to separate expenses" if the bonus isn't gonna come. I went ahead and got the second card using the recon line, based on info here, and what I'm understanding from your text is that I WONT be getting the bonus again???????????

Applied for the card yesterday using the link on the first page and got instant approval for World Premiere! This will be my first Barclays/USAir card. From reading the other posts, am I correct in understanding that I should wait 6 months to apply again and get a 2nd card for another 40K bonus?

I think what he/she was saying was that it was unusual to get approved for a second card if you have to call in - not that you would not get a bonus.

Right, there are multiple reports of Barclay's recon refusing to approve a second card of the same variety despite people's best efforts. The most common result is that Barclay's pulls all 3 credit bureaus and still denies the second card. If you were fortunate enough to get a CSR to approve the second card, then I wouldn't anticipate any problems with the bonus.

You should wait however long necessary for you to be confident that you'll receive instant approval. I waited 3 months and was approved for a second card, but I've seen approval reports as low as 61 days. I'm not sure there is a hard and fast wait time for this card (or at least we haven't figured it out yet).
