Current Links:
30k + 10k anniversary + no annual fee for the first year (now says "Offer expired"); terms and conditions include offer specifics

There is a separate thread for a 40k+10k offer with $89 annual fee, no anniversary bonus: USAirways CC special Offer 40K + 10K BT Bonus; AF not waived

Newer 35K Link (click on terms and conditions to see 35K bonus after first purchase, first year fee waived, and 10K anniversary bonus)


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 what i thought i knew 300 bucks you transfer wasnt going to be enough for the 10k.I dont think the 10 k makes much of a difference if you have to do a bt.Im happy i got the no af card and the nfl card that's 400 dollars more after 2500 spend which i can do in a 10 minute walk.

Despite my concerns I submitted an App today. Got 10 day notice, then immediately checked app status online - denied. Might call reconsideration later.

Denied due to too many new/young accounts. He really grilled me on why I had so many new accounts and unfortunately I had not prepared a good answer. Analyst wouldn't budge when I offered to transfer credit from an existing card. Oh well.

I applied for the card in mid/end of Nov and got approved for the plat (i had a high balance on one card for the month so i got downgraded despite having high 7's score).

What are the chances if I reapply for the premier world MC or is it too soon? TU score is still high and balances are low this time.

Like several others I just tried this and it said pending within 10 days etc. But when I check online and when I call Barclays, there is no record of me ever applying.

Update: I got email notice of approval within an hour.

I tried the same thing, 35k link then 40k link, got pending within 10 days, and now there is no record of me applying.

I think the 35k link is a safer bet, I think I'm going to try that one too. Only one credit inquiry if done on the same day, and the worst they can do is deny one or both.

I got instant approval on the 35k link, after the pending/no record of applying from the 40k link.

Most complex reconsideration call I've ever had on this card. The representative asked a ton of questions. Nature of work, employment history, amount of invested assets, percentage of income from work vs. investment, etc etc. In the end I was able to get approved with a sufficient credit line, and he confirmed the 35k on first purchase.

Surprisingly, he did not ask at all about other credit inquiries.

Time to take it easy for a while . . .
