    Hi all,

    This may be a daft question, hope you don’t mind. I closed a BA Premium Amex a few months ago to jump to Barclaycard. I know that if I re-open an Amex I won’t be eligible for the Avios bonus, but would I still be able to achieve the 2 for 1 vouchers, spend permitting?

    Yes, but leave a decent amount of time before trying to reopen. some advise three months minimum. I’d leave six.

    When did this 3/6 month thing start? I’ve applied to cards after 2/3 weeks

    Make sure you review/reduce your credit on existing cards as rejoining might tip you over
