Bank of America - they closed our accounts down 2 years ago now claiming "we have enough open credit". Those two accounts had a total CL of $30k.
End of story.

I'll do business with any lender that has a sign up bonus. I don't like American Express, but gladly take their sign up bonuses and close the cards shortly after. The hate for Capital One is not fair in my opinion. You can't really complain about not getting an increase when you have derogatory information on credit reports. Even when it's gone, Capital One has different policies for all of their cards, so if people would just apply for another one they may get what they want.Barclays is just more strict with giving bigger limits and multiple cards than other lenders and there really isn't anything wrong with that.
Anyway, I've not had such a bad experience that I wouldn't want to apply for a credit card from any lender, yet.

I don't have any that I'd never do business with, but I'm super pissed at Barclays right now. They CLD'd me to $8250 from $12.5K after I transferred a large balance to them using a 0% promotional offer they sent me.
Other than that, every creditor has been good to me so far.

I used to dislike Discover and Cap One from some entirely percieved slights when I was young. Looking back though, it was entirely my fault, so I would do business with either of them again if they had a product that met one of my needs.

My credit has been pretty good for 30 some years, no baddies etc...I REALLY find Barclay's recon condescending to say the least, mind you I do have 2 cards from them with rather nice CL, but the guy on the call was just a jerk, bad, bad customer service, not because I did not get the card, don't care it's a game with me anyway, but just the way he treated me....and I have a Cap. 1 card and really am unimpressed with them as a whole, thinking of dropping it, or SD it, the rewards are OK and redemption is very easy, but there is something about them I do not like, just my personal thoughts......On a good note, loving the AMEX, Chase, Discover...Citi is dicey at best, sometimes they are great other times they just screw things up royally. I do like FNBO, although seems like they have stopped giving cards out to anyone living in a state they do not have branches in, as a whole they are a nice company to deal with.

Barclays because of constant AA paranoia and I agree on their condescending recon/credit analysts. Their shady past which includes fudging their numbers to drive up their stock price as well.
Crapital One because they refuse to take off the training wheels without the CEOs blessing.
Well, that would be BAU for many companies! Barclays went several steps further and manipulated a key index, LIBOR, impacting trillions of $ in loans around the world. And a smaller manipulation of CA Energy futures.
But most banks have similar skeletons, just differing in magnitude.
