Thanks to Million Mile Secrets readers for letting me know about their recent Barclays card applications.
I’ve written about Barclays becoming much stricter about approving folks for more than 1 or 2 credit cards per year. And some readers have had existing accounts closed down when they’ve called the Barclays reconsideration line to ask for approval.
You Might Only Get Approved for 1 or 2 Barclays Cards

It’s the 1st Friday of the month, which means you earn 3X points at restaurants with your Chase Sapphire Preferred card. You usually get 2X Chase Ultimate Rewards points at restaurants. But today you will earn 1 more point per dollar.
