opening a 2nd card with the same bank for stoozing?

Hi people,

I have a barclaycard which I was using for stoozing some time back - the interest free has run out and I have paid it off & put the direct debit to pay in full per month because I like the ability to use it for wireless payments...

However, just looked to see if I can get another 0% card in conjunction with my M&S one which has maxed out and is still on interest free.. the best deal is a barclaycard.

So - can I get another Barclay card account with 18 months interest free despite already having a credit card with them?

Are there any drawbacks doing this or anything I should know about? (lower chance due to already having an existing card with them etc, or not being subject to the free interest because I'm not strictly a new customer with them?)

Thanks

    Can't believe people are still actually stoozing.. Ruin a credit file with maxed out cards for pennies....

    As a family we're still making £100+ per month free for about 30 mins of action to pay just over the minimum payments. We'll accept that. Accepted that the credit files reflect this but, from experience to-date, a 6 month period after cancelling CC accounts re-sets the stoozing cycle, time will tell.
