Want to app for US Airways

Postby TheSwarm » Fri Mar 13, 2015 11:59 pm

I really want this sign up bonus before it gets discontinued. I have gotten 2 cards from barclaycard within the last 6 months. Is it possible to get approved for another?

They might not be taking new sign ups but that's because all US Airway cards (mine included, got the notice last week) are becoming American Red Cards (as part of the airline merger), and they are offering the same bonus, so that's not going away. Thats the best of my knowledge.

As far as the second question, this was my first barclay card, and no way of predicting your chances. I think the new American cards are Citi cards anyways.

The card, it is still available to apply; however, it will be soon changed to the AA Aviator card (Red, Silver). It is my understanding that what jcarte29 stated is correct; that once the US Airways card is officially shut off for new applicants that Citibank retains the rights for all new accounts under the AA program.


I do not have any experience with Barclay's; however, a lot of banks these days no longer really have a limit to the number of cards a consumer can carry but do limit the total exposure (all credit lines added together) for each consumer. For instance, at Chase they might have your maximum credit exposure at $20,000; so that could be 2 cards at $10K each or 4 cards at $5K each or any other combination that does not exceed $20K. Maybe someone with Barclay's experience can chime in. I do know from reading these forums that Barclay's does not like to see too many new accounts. The best thing you can do is just go for it and then if declined, call them for a recon.

It's like anything else. How strong is your credit profile otherwise? Any other recent new accounts besides the two Barclays? If you don't already have a ton of inquiries you may as well try. They won't be taking new applications for much longer I'm guessing

Looks to me like the US Airways application has been officially removed from the Barclaycard website. Hope you got your application in!
