  1. Madison, you never mention that Barclays is the hardest bank to get CC from . My wife and I both have CS of 788-802 (after many AOR’s) and they are the only ones to turn us down for other cards. We both have the PL and NFL cards and received offers for the NFL card for add’l 20 or 40k points, but can not get Club Carlson or Arrival cards. Both got letters stating “too many inquiries”, this is 4 months after our AOR. But all the other issuers have no problem with us. This bank is the worst!!


    • Barry,
      Interesting that you find Barclays the most difficult. I haven’t had any problems with approvals from them.

      I went through my notes from the last few application sprees and I found Capital One and US Bank to consistently be the most difficult for me.

      The only thing I see that stands out as different is that I see you wait 4 months between AORs. I try to wait 6 months between each one. I wonder if that matters?

      Also, I canceled my NFL card before applying for the Arrival card. I wonder if that makes a difference too?

      Thanks for sharing your data points. Did you call for a reconsideration?
