I'm surprised Barclay has not shut me down yet, I got the card 5/2011 and have used it twice, one charge for 400 PIF as soon as it posted to my account (this was like in June 2011) and I used it at the pharmacy about 6 months ago for a whopping 10 (also PIF as soon as it hit my online account).
I really am surprised they have not closed my account due to inactivity.
Maybe I'll use it this week for something small.
Maybe those 800 scores keep the muzzles on them for you.
My statement cut 04/08 nd still no update....As posted in another thread.....Barclays SUCKS!
Some companies don't report until the second statements cuts. A lot depends on when your account was opened and statement cycle. For me it took 2 months for Discover to report and 5 days for Chase.
My statement closed 4/15 and it still hasn't posted to my CR. Which is great for me cause my utilization went up this month (thanks to two ipads).
In the past with Barclay and with all of my other cards, the credit bureau updates balances not long after your latest statement is cut and the new balances are then sent to the CRA. I actually paid my Barclay card off a month ago and I'm still waiting because for some reason the last few months, Barclays seems to be having internal computer issues along with other issues...
Mine cut on the 6th and was reported on the 7th-10th to the 3 bureaus.
I just noticed that Barclays was supposed to report on the 11th , my due date is on the 7th.
They just reported on the 25th , and my balance was at the limit , since i always PIF on the due date.
Obiously my Equifax , score went down..12 points.
Why does this happen?
They do seem slower than normal. My statement ended on the 15th and i haven't seen an update on my report either. And when I made my last payment it was for the full balance amount. A few days later i noticed that I had a $1.00 balance showing on this account. I called their CS they said it was interest which didn't make sense. They said they were going to credit it back and now I have a -$1.00 credit.
