Re: Dear Barfclays oh why oh why did you close my account.

I applied for a card from barclays in May. Since then I've apped and received cards from Discover in June and Amex in August. I also know (or I'm pretty sure I did) receive a a HP when I tried getting a CLI from Discover, and possibly one from Citi when I was getting a CLI around that time. 


I'm going to be in the garden for awhile (1-2yrs)... want the Freedom card next. I'm curious when Barclays stops caring about new accounts being opened. I also requested to get a CLI from Barclays and got $500... so they must not totally hate me. 

FICO Score 8s 9/15: TU 762 | EQ 759 | EX 762
Amex BCE $8,000 | Citi DoubleCash $4,500 | Chase Freedom $4,000 | Chase Amazon Rewards $3,500 | Citi Forward $2,500 | Discover IT $2,100 | Barclaycard Rewards $2,000 | Capital One Quicksilver $1,750
