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.

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.



Rethink every purchase you make, before you make it. Use the card with the best rewards. Pay in full each month. Redeem rewards often. Use the cards online shopping for more discounts. Smile, knowing that being thrifty allows you to actually get more out of the same amount of money!
