Re: Barclay CC let's put our heads together

So what i am gathering. No new accounts or inquires ever. Use it or lose it. Pay them large payments every month as they like cash flow. Report ur balance and dont try to lower utility by paying before statement. It is as if u have just got married to an extremely sensitive computer. That gets super sensitive when u seek new friends and will over react as if ur actions were the worst thing that has happened to it. So what do u do at this point. In January i was terrified i would have AA cause of an auto loan. Not so much anymore. I do like Barclay and have even open an online savings with them. I am waiting for a fresh SP from them as may 28 was the last peek they had. I will be sure to of any changes.

Re: Barclay CC let's put our heads together

Re: Barclay CC let's put our heads together

Here's what Barclays thinks:

 

We define “bad behavior” as:

  • Credit losses or charge offs – these are balances charged by our cardmembers who subsequently stopped making monthly payments
  • Balance attrition - these are balances that, for example, were charged by our cardmembers who then decided to  transfer them to another lender
  • Inactivity – opening a card but never using it to make purchases or transfer balances

And the “good behavior” is:

  • Carrying a balance and making at least a minimum payment every month (to avoid becoming a credit loss)
  • Transferring a balance to our card -  from another lender’s card
  • Actively using the card every month
