For some reason on my yahoo we mail I keep seeing ad's for the Barclays Black Visa card but I would noyt pay a $495 fee for any credit card, that seems rediculous to me

There's a cc for every individual. Those who've apped and are carrying the card may not agree with the 'worst card ever' sentiment.

Surely they wouldn't or they wouldn't have applied for the card. There seems to be low AF cards and $0 AF cards that are just as rewarding or more. Common sense should take over at some point.

Re: Barclay Black Metal Card

My point is, not to judge a persons reasoning for applying because it differs from your opinion. It's not the card for me but it is for some. Smiley Wink

Right, and "worst card ever" probably isn't true.   But there has to be room for people to basically say "This card really is a bad choice" (e.g. there is a card that is as easy to get with all and more of the features at lower cost).  The implication isn't that the person who DOES have the card is a stupid loser, but it is useful information for others who might be considering it.

 

There is a difference between being generally supportive and being strongly affirming of all choices, even bad ones!

Opinions are what makes this forum helpful. Definitely not wishing to curtail anyone's right to their point of view; just want to make sure everyone feels free to offer their opinion.

It's like cars.   Some people probablly can't understand why anyone would pay hundreds of thousands for Bentley when a comparably equiped Audi is much less money.   Ditto for handbags, etc.    Value, especially with things like prestige factor, is in the eye of the beholder.
