…I figured I’d post a follow up to Barclays applications. I tried more than 1 U.S. Airways application, first one was accepted, second one was flagged as “you previously applied within 30 days for this card…” so did not even process it, I assume no credit pull, or they will combine it into the same one…
I asked PedroNY if he had ever tried to reapply as soon as 31 days, he responded:
I know it works every 91 days (well at least it has for 2012), I haven’t tried it with greater frequency, being that it pulls from TransUnion, and I think you are in NJ, so that is the agency for you, maybe that should be tried out. I keep it “simple”, try to consolidate all of my hits every 3 months or so, mostly for Citi cards reasons, but it maybe worth a try.
If anyone has tried sooner than 91 days, let us know.
(Disclaimer: I link to my review of the US Airways card, which currently has a lesser ‘official’ public offer that pays me a commission, and a better ‘YMMV’ offer that has worked for me and many others, I provide links to both.)
