Card-Smart Tips & Advice
  • Step by step guide how on to apply without an LLC or C-Corp
  • Max cards: Barclays will not approve you for their business cards if you have opened 6 or more credit cards within the past 24 months.
  • Barclays bank will (usually) only approve you for up to 2 personal credit cards within 12 months.
  • Double-dipping: Barclays may not approve you for a credit card that you’ve already had in the past (and closed, for whatever reason).
  • Apply for two cards: If you apply for one Barclays card and get approved, it is recommended to apply for a second card since Barclays is very good about approving for two cards, even within the same day. You might have to call the reconsideration department to push for the second card to get approved.

  • Use your Barclays card often: If you do not use your open Barclays cards often, then Barclays may hesitate to approve you for a new one
  • Not reported on personal credit reports: Barclays Bank will not report business credit cards on personal credit reports
  • Credit bureau: Barclays Bank will usually pull your Transunion credit report (if you freeze Transunion then Barclays will pull your Experian credit report)
  • Combining same-day credit inquiries: Many data points suggest that credit inquiries for same-day applications will be combined
  • Check application status: You can check your application status  here
  • Reconsideration: If declined you can call 1 866 408 4064 to be reconsidered
  • Quickest way to get my card: During the credit card application, you can request for your card to be expedited overnight via FedEx for a $15 fee. Barclays will not offer an instant credit card number for your new card
