    I was recently approved for a Barclay's Miles & More credit card with the standard 20K bonus plus an additional 15K for balance transfers. Just a couple of days ago, I learned that they've bumped it up to 50K with a 90 day spend of $5,000. I have not activated the card that I received from them. If I call in, what do you think the probability of them upgrading me to the new promotion is?

    I believe that Barclay's is a company that does not bump bonuses. But you have little to lose by calling in and seeing what they say.

    probably won't happen with Barclay's but the worst they can say is no.

    So I called, and Barclay's did say no. Just wondering if anyone knows how long I would have to wait if I were to close the account and apply for the new card?
