Did you just get the 20K first spend miles so far, or the entire 50K+ first spend plus min spnd miles? Because I think the T/Cs are pretty clear everyone gets the first spend 20K. It's the min spnd additional 30K miles that are in question.

I will be most happy to know when your entire 50K bonus miles have posted to LH.

20 K first spend plus annual fee bonus only . Was hesitant to continue spending
on card till I was 100 % sure proper promotion was noted on account

Points never showed as pending at Barclays or in last statement , but just showed up in LH account

CSR are nice enough , but not too bright and did not have much faith in them

Will post when I finish spend and get points

It seems Barclays is now tracking the card history for prior cardmembers.
I just applied for this card a 2nd time. Had my 1st M&M card open for a year and closed it a few months ago (June, I think). After hitting submit on the app Barclays pulled my credit and I got the following message:

"Unfortunately, we are not able to provide you with an immediate decision on the application you just submitted. Your application requires further review, which can take up to 10 days."

Uh oh. Decided to go for it and called up recon since this 50k offer supposedly expires on August 31st. Exchanged pleasantries with the CSR then she put me on hold to review things, came back after 5 minutes, congratulated me on having "pristine credit by Barclays' standard" then approved me for $10k (a little low compared to my other cards, by whatever). No mention of my previous M&M card that I closed just a few months ago.

My application landing page did have the following language: "This offer is available to first-time cardmembers only." I'll report back if/when the bonus miles actually post.

That language has been there for a long time. It was there when I applied for my second card some months ago, (my first card having been closed for @ a year) and I did in fact get the sign up bonus.

From the wiki:

"This is a recurring offer."

It comes and goes on a regular basis.

I have churn this card 3 times around the June to August time frame from 2012 through 2014. Each time I would close the card around the anniversary date, wait a month, and reapply. Haven't applied this year because I am working on doing the spend on other cards that may take me through the end of October.

Yes, although unlike the OP above my first one was closed for 6 months before reapplying.

I feel like I got dealt a pair of Aces.. One Lufthansa card for me, one for Mr. SD, nearly 50K in new credit lines, and 100K points. We have 3 open Aviator cards between us.

I'm having a good morning! Now, off to Citiland...
