Holy reporting, Barclays!

I was approved for the Arrival card last week, but I haven't received it yet.  But I got an email today from Credit Sesame that alerted me about the new account being open!  Does Barclays always report this quickly?


Too bad they can't mail my card that fast! :-p

Re: Holy reporting, Barclays!

Yeap they took 2 business days to report my account lol.

The card came a week after.


BofA, and other FIA backed products, seem to report within a couple days as well.

Re: Holy reporting, Barclays!

My Barclays Arrival showed up on my EX the next morning. It was ridiculously quick. You'll notice when you log in to your account right after an instant approval that Barclays has already created and account number for you. It seems like a pretty impressive system to me.

In My Wallet: Amex BCP (12/12) $50,000, Chase Freedom (12/12) $16,500, Cap1 Quicksilver (6/12) $14,000, Barclaycard Rewards (5/13) $10,500, Citi Prestige (4/16) $30,000
