Has Barclays ever transferred CL from 1 card to another for you

I'm hoping they can do this but I don't want to call and ask if they don't. Is like to move my 2.2k CL from my Apple visa to my 5k MC and close out the visa. Is thus possible?

Not sure. They did that for a lot of people when the Ring came out but I'm not sure about other cards. I love their customer service. You could call them and ask. They are usually super nice and very helpful.

BK in 2008, after making very stupid financial decisions.

Barclay's Apple Financing Card ($6400) --- Capital One Quicksilver ($10,000)---GEMB CareCredit ($5700) --- AUFCU ($10000)--- Walmart ($5000)

I'm worried if I draw attention to the other card they might just close it anyway :smileysad:

Re: Has Barclays ever transferred CL from 1 card to another for you

You can call and ask, though your concern about that drawing attention to the MC is noted.  However, if the consensus here ends up being "Yes, Barclays usually will do that", when you call to have it done you will be drawing attention to the MC.  The only way you don't draw attention to the MC is if you don't call them.

 

Why are you concerned about drawing attention to the MC?

I'm concerned about them closing the visa not the MC. I have a BT setup for the MC and it would be beneficial to me BT the entire balance of my CU card to the MC but cannot do it unless they transfer the visa CL to the MC.

So did you just go ahead and close down the Visa?

 

EDIT: Had to re-read this thread.... :smileyembarrassed:
