Re: Do Barclays cards grow?

I apped for the Barclays Reward MC on June 25th getting an initial CL of $500 and my statement that cut yesterday had an automatic increase to $1,200.

 

I put over $1,000 on it each month making probably 10 payments a month on it (I know, overkill) so maybe that played a role in it. It has become my debit card due to me already getting paid about $125 to use it with the rewards.

My Baclays Reward got an auto CLI after 6 months.  From previous threads, that's not uncommon.   I had opened 3 cards between opening the Barclays and the auto-CLI 6 months later.

I went from $1200-$12500 in a little over a year's time on my Barclaycard Rewards MC.  BK7 from '06.

Wow, nice! How? Auto/manual CLI's? Hard/soft pulls?

Re: Do Barclays cards grow?

I hope to get my first CLI from them next month.  I hope it is without a HP!  I have heard they are fairly good to deal with.


Credit is just like a video game. Some people have already gotten the experience from other games. Others, well they just have to learn. You go out on a quest. If you die or get wounded you just restart from the last save point or heal. Unlike a video game, we don't have a last save point or magic potions to heal instantly.

So maybe one day we will get a SIMs credit game so we can prepare better for real life.
