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.
