Barclay's Air Tran Visa

Too start off I applied and received this card back in March of this year, and was denied. Called back door number and was approved for $4500 with TU score around 676. I did an balance transfer with them over the phone(csr wanted me to do it) and I transferred all my other balances to this card equaling out to $4000. My 0% promo is about to expire now. But my question  is that since ive only been making $200 a month towards balance will this look bad on my for keeping such a high utl on this card with them? I don't want them to get the impression I'm hard up for money since I haven't paid it off so fast. I would like to stay on their good side LOL. I got the balance down to $3000 but had to make unexpected trip to Chicago last month and I flew Air Tran for the rewards. Now I'm back up to 4000 again. I hope I haven't done wrong in their eyes and they do a cld on me. What is everyone's opinion?

Airtran was aquired by Southwest.  Southwest will rebrand Airtran Southwest and Airtran will not exist by the end of next year.  My guess is they will either close The Airtran barclay's accounts or PC them to a Southwest product.

Correct.  Its possible that Chase will start to service those Barclay's accounts at some point, its really not clear how that will be handled.

Re: Barclay's Air Tran Visa

i Was Thinking The Same Thing.  Airtran Is Going Away, Barclay Doesn't Issue The Southwest Card, So It Will Either Close or PC, But If It Stays Open, I Doubt Barclay Will Close  Or Decrease The Line Just Because You've Carried A Balance.

 

Besides If The Balance Is Zero After You PIF With Tax Refund, And Barclay Decreases The Line, Then You'll Just Have A Lower Limit Or You'll Sock Drawer It, And Move On.

Re: Barclay's Air Tran Visa

I wonder if Barclasy's will let me PC to a different branded card they have. Maybe i should call and see what they say.

Re: Barclay's Air Tran Visa

When the NFL moved over to Barclay/Juniper for their credit card you were required to reapply.  Just adding my input. think that same contract expires in 4-5 years again.
