Re: Barclay CC let's put our heads together

Boost disappeared for me as well. I emailed and was told my account was not eligible and that they would email me once i was eligible. But i used it a month prior. I chalked it up as a whatever. Funny thing it is listed on my statements.

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

Wow this seems to fit the pattern we have found so far

Much thanks

Re: Barclay CC let's put our heads together

Simply is that a legit list from Barclay. Cause that explains them to a T. Seems that is the algorithms that the boss aka computer follows. The analyst don't really agree with it so that is why they have such a good recon. Really this computer has to be cracked. A year from now there will be long guide to Barclay computers similar to that of Amex....

Whew! They gave me a 0% BT offer a couple of months ago, and I took advantage of it. Maybe I'll be safe, then. :smileywink:
