Re: Barclay CC let's put our heads together

Got my Barclays Arrival April 2013.

I am at approx 45-50% utilization right now. 

Barclays card is at bout 3-5% utilization (don't really use it much, just for random stuff that doesn't fall under any bonus category. using it solely to show usage). 

2 other cards maxed out.

No AA (yet) on any card.

 

This is just a one time thing though. Was trying to let some cards report a high "high balance" and used some others at a wrong timing.

New statement for Discover, Freedom, Amex, US Bank and Citi cuts latter this week, CSP next. Everything should report 0 balance by the end of the month except for WF, Chase Amazon and Barclays.

 

Hopefully I can survive past this month.

 

JPMorgan Palladium (100k), AmEx Platinum (NPSL), AmEx SPG (46k), AmEx BCP (42k), Chase Sapphire Preferred (47k), Citi Prestige (31k), Citi Thank You Preferred (27k), Citi Executive AAdvantage (25k), JPMorgan Ritz-Carlton (21k), Merrill+ (15k), US Bank Cash+ (22.5k), Wells Fargo (12k), Bloomingdale’s (12.4k), Chase Freedom (5k), Discover IT (5k).

Re: Barclay CC let's put our heads together

My situation may seem a bit strange for a CLI.

 

Apped in jul '12 for barclay reward mastercard approved for 5k with 0% BT and purchases for 15 months. Transferred 4k in first month. Every month since then I use it for about 400-800 in purchases and pay it back down to 4k after statement. Have never requested a CLI, but after 12 months I got a letter saying approved for a CLI to 8k. I was kinda surprised given the high util (I can pay off all my balances tomorrow if I wanted to, but I doubt Barclays know that) but happy because I like the card and will continue to use it, particularly for groceries and utilities and gas when chase/discover don't have the 5% deals. I was planning to use it a little more after I paid down the balance when the 0% goes away, but now with the extra 3k increase I can use it a little more now.

 

I have about 40% total util and 85% on barclay before the increase. All my util is at 0% interest and I make good financial use of the extra cashflow, but I have the money to pay everything off tomorrow if I chose to. I plan to pay off the Barclaycard in full after the 0% expires and probably use it more in my rotation of chase/discover/barclay. In fact, with Chase getting rid of the 10/10 Barclays may soon become my #1 monthly usage.

Wow 

I do see one trend so far Barclay seems to give CLI's if carrying a balance even tho it's at 0%....hummm 

Thanks
