so in my case at least it was not necessary to cancel the old nfl card to get the new one. the CL did suffer i'm sure, since most of my cards are ~10K.

Has anyone who has done two cards without canceling the first one had them charge back the second $400?

I also signed up for a new NFL card while I still have the old one. It linked to my existing online account. There are now two tabs on the web site, one for each credit card.

Any way to close old NFL card online or must I call? Sorry for the simple question, but I can't find anything on their website.

Thanx OP

aaronl said:   Instantly approved for a 40,000 point / $1k spend offer. Thanks to those who contributed the URLs, this is a quick and easy signup bonus.

As a data point, I already have a US Airways card from Barclays. The NFL card showed up in my account right away.

Sounds like the points are redeemable for a statement credit against any recent purchase of at least $25. Does anyone know the full details on the redemption process?
Yea, after the points are credited, you start using the card for 25.00 increments, then when it's statement time, you go the the "redeem rewards" page and click on each purchase that is more then 25.00 and click redeem points and then you use up the 40k points. My wife and I had the 20k points bonus on 2 cards(her's and mine) and finaly figured how it works. I got screwed on 2 different charges because one charge was for 9.00 and the other was for14.40. They itemize all the charges and they are redeemed that way. Had to send a check to pay for these. So just make sure your individual charges are at least 25.00 each. I don't think I can apply for this card since I got the 20k offers on my wife and my card, I also got another 20k bonus offer in NOv. if I spent 500.00 in Nov/Dec/Jan. which I did so Im waiting for the bonus to be credited. Good luck

THANKS

Can someone make it clear that if you have an existing card from within the past year, that you can get another of the opposite cc company and still get another bonus? I have a a vikings Visa from last year ($200 bonus), now I want to know if I can apply for a AMEX packers card and get the $400 bonus.

I have a a vikings Visa from last year ($200 bonus), now I want to know if I can apply for a AMEX packers card and get the $400 bonus.The Green Bay Packers APPLICATION PAGE lists it as a Master Card, not AMEX. As far as the answer to your Q, the Wiki section of the SD thread (equivalent to the FW "Quick Summary" section) contains the following:

Most popular FAQ:
1. Already a NFL Visa Signature Card Holder - Can I apply?
No
2. Already a NFL Master Card Holder - Can I apply?
Yes
3. Once I was a NFL Credit Card Holder and closed the acccount - Can I apply?
Yes.
4. I have poor or normal credit - Can I apply?
No. Usually Visa Signature will be approved only for better and best credit customers

#1 & #2 above make it sound like existing MC cardholders can apply for a Visa card but not vice versa, although #3 above may offer a loophole. I consider all of the info quoted above to be YMMV.

I have the mastercard which is still open. I applied for this card and was accepted. The Rewards -> Program Overview section does not say anything about the 40k points. I emailed customer service to see if they would qualify me, and they replied:

...
Forty thousand (40,000) Bonus Points will be awarded after at least $2,500.00 in Net Purchases (that are not later returned or rescinded) in the first 90 days after account opening. Bonus Points will be posted at the close of your first billing statement after an initial qualifying purchase or balance transfer is made. Balance Transfer Checks do not qualify for bonus points.
...

The Rewards -> Program Overview section still does not say anything about the 40k points. So I am more confused than ever. I suspect customer service just typed in the brochure without actually looking at the account.

Have a MC from last time. No go for Raiders, Eagles, or Dolphins. Which other cards might work?

my old (still open) and new nfl cards are both visa

OK Guys because I did not find anywhere if a existing NFL VISA user can apply for the card, you CANT.
Not to either VISA or MC card for new one. IT will be denied. Do not waste a hit on score.

You didn't look 1 post and 4 posts up???

woot! just applied for a Ravens card.. got 7500 CL instant. got the 400/1000 promo.

edit.
This pulled on TU btw.

Got Visa last time and got immediate approval this time with Green Bay Packers MC.

Applied for Lions. 3,500 CL instant and 400/1000 listed in the rewards center and TOS.

Not sure if this question has been asked earlier..
I applied for the MC/2500/400 earlier (as soon as I seen it - thanks OP) and then realized that there was a better one - the VISA/1000/400
Has anyone applied for both? Is there a way to cancel the earlier one (that was approved) and apply for the latter ones posted?
I understand that there may be a possibility of a hard credit hit once again.
TIA

Approved for 2nd card, but like others, only see the 10,000 bonus points listed in the TOS.

Wow, instant approval for $7k and saw 40000/$1000 in TOS. By the way, i still have the nfl visa card from last year.

VerbalK said:   Approved for 2nd card, but like others, only see the 10,000 bonus points listed in the TOS.

Did your first card show the 40,000 point bonus?

First time to this reward structure.

From my reading on the old thread, I should make a SINGLE $410 purchase, then purchase a $590.

My questions are:

1) does it matter which transaction I do first? $410 or $590??

2) I know the $410 is a single purchase... But is the $590 a single charge.? Or can I do my daily activities (incremental charges) to accrue $590

3) the other thread says to purchase $600 in month 1 and $410 in month two.. Can I do everything in one single month?

590 doesn't need to be a single purchase. You can do them in the same cycle, in fact, I think that's preferred. Order doesn't matter other than the fact that you are going to use the 41k points to pay off the $410 charge, so you need to spend $1000 to earn the 41k points prior to the payment of the $410 charge being due.

Thanks, another question is.

In the old thread, the first topic on the wiki says to spend $600 first month, pay it off, then spend $410 in second month - - -

Why is there discrepancy with the $600 or $590?

Which is it? $600 or $590 in purchases.?

.

Total needs to be >= 1000. I assume 600 is just rounding.

Approved and started setting up online access, but got an error message and can't continue. Guess I'll just wait for the card in the mail. Thanks to lillazyfats81 for the info from the other thread, didn't know about that.

Edit: Went to barclaycardus.com and was able to log in and finish setting up the online account.

Uh-oh, looks like we're entering Phase 2, where the grappling with Barclays' convoluted reward cashout system begins. Green to Lillazyfats81 for reviewing the (extensive) discussion of this in the old thread.

Bottom line is, you don't just get a check or statement credit at a straight 1 cent per point. Instead Barclays has you offset individual purchases that you've made, using your points, at about a 1 cpp rate (they round up, so a $802.57 purchase requires 80.3k points, or something like that). But all you really need to know is, if you're not too concerned about leaving $10 or so in potential rewards on the table, just spend $1k or more. If you want to get every last stinking dime out of them without spending a penny more than you have to, spend $410 and $590 (same cycle or different cycles, and only the $410 needs to be in a single purchase) and use you're 41,000 points (40k bonus points + 1k from actual spending) to offset the $410 purchase.

RTOT, link, for (a lot) more detail and discussion.

Anyone been approved for 2 differnt Barclay cards in a single day? I have a offer I got in the mail for a differnt card.. wondering if I should try applying for the NFL and it.

bobley said:   Have a MC from last time. No go for Raiders, Eagles, or Dolphins. Which other cards might work?
My attempt:

1. Kept MC open, applied, denied before credit pull
2. Closed MC, applied, denied before credit pull

I might try again later this week. No credit pull until it passes their quick checks.

Another data point: I have a Travelocity card opened with them as well, because they gave me an invite-only offer. I'm guessing the credit limits and recent card closing are what flagged me for review and denial.

Approved for a Lions card, wife's app for a Saints card is on hold. Might call them up after work today.

When I did this last time, it was easy to break up all the points to use up the whole amount without doing large purchases.
It may take a minute to calculate which purchases to use for the credit but was not difficult.

Let me know what is the end result. I am in the same boat. No mention of 40,000 anywhere. Once I get the card, I will call and verify it. I have the screen shots.

Most popular FAQ:

Just to add a data point for #1

Spouse: had MC from last year, not closed, instant approval for Dolphins which is Visa, offer verified for 40,000 after $1k spend in 90 days.

Me: had Visa from last year, not closed, instant approval for Dolphins which is Visa, offer verified for 40,000 after $1k spend in 90 days.

I do not think #1 is correct.

I agree. I also have a visa from last year and just approved for another visa

That is what worries me from T&C:

You understand and agree that, unless we otherwise state, you are no longer eligible to receive these bonuses and/or awards for any new NFL Extra Points account after your first NFL Extra Points credit card account is opened. If you receive a bonus or award for which you are not eligible, we may revoke the bonus or award, or reduce your Points by the amount of the award, or charge your account for the fair value of the bonus or award, at our option.

There are no guarantees. T&C says no, some users have had luck anyway.

Anyone know if you can get approved for two differnt barcleys cards in the same day?
