Will using Plastiq to pay my mortgage count towards the $2k spend? It’s a Mastercard so it appears it should (as per Plastiq’s chart and FM) and I don’t see any specific Barclays card restrictions. Does anyone know? Thanks!

Does anyone have DP’s on the change of earning the bonus for a 2nd card under a different business? Both are legit small businesses (LLC’s)


I applied through this link today, and it is again offering 80k miles with a $95 credit!


I recently got this business card and received the bonus, but not Double Miles on one of the categories it claims to. My office telephone,TV and internet are with Comcast Infinity. They don’t give you double miles for Comcast, even though the Card rewards program says double miles on Telecommunication Services. I called and spoke to a representative who confirmed this. I always thought Comcast-Infinity would be considered a Telecommunications company because they provide Telephone-TV-Internet Service, but I guess not??


Barclays site no longer showing AA cards, oddly. Says this offer expired.


Applied and was rejected we even with recon bec I already had this card in the past for another “business”.


Same here. When I applied they didn’t have an option to list an EIN (for a different business), so presumably it looked like the same biz.

DP – Looked everywhere for info on getting multiple of this card, and couldn’t find anything. I was able to get 2 of these business cards. First card approved instantly 11/7/19, received mileage bonus 12/7/19 after paying statement. Second card applied 12/8/19 through this page’s link, declined, called recon and explained I have two businesses. They asked for more details about businesses’ income, expenses, but did not ask for EINs. Approved second card by phone. I don’t know yet if the second card will receive bonus but hoping so since application was through this link.


Hi Nick, yes, the question will be if the second card also gets the bonus…I didn’t want to press my luck by asking during the recon phone call. Any thoughts on if I should call back and dig deeper on this?

A little more info: I was 7/24 including biz, 4/24 without at time of first AAviator application/approval. Today first applied for Amex Biz Gold and instantly approved, then moved on to this second AAviator. Technically I was at 9/24 with biz, 5/24 without at time of recon phone call. However I don’t think Amex has been doing hard pulls for me, I’m a customer since 1995.

On call, CSR asked for permission to do another hard pull, which I agreed. Questions about spouses income, etc. We have rental properties so they would have been able to see those mortgages as confirmation of at least one business. Asked about another CU loan (solar). First card CL was 14k, she said the max for this one would be 5k. I said let’s have them both at 5k.

Used number above for recon, phone rep answered immediately when I called, didn’t have to press a single number to be directed through their system. Very pleasant and easy to deal with, not overseas.


Thank you, that’s good to hear! I’ll update with the results. Now need to get my P2 to be willing to recon a 2nd AAviator, and plus our two new Citi Biz AA’s we’ll have a tidy stash! Haven’t delved into personal AA cards yet because we’re working on SW CP and CIPs too.

This is up to 60K bonus now, but with a $1K spend requirement.

Looks like this offer is still alive as of August 10, 2018.
Just applied and was instantly approved for 5K.
I’m 9/24, closed Barclay Hawaiian in May’18, no other applications in 2018 except Chase Marriott Business.
Credit score in low 800.


it was 60,000 miles after first purchase back in February.

Are you sure it was Business version, not the personal one ?
Cause personal has 60K bonus.
