Re: Juniper/Barclay 10 day hold on funds

I pay both my Carnival and Juniper from their website, and have never noticed a 10 day hold, whether the payment is small or large. Perhaps it's because this was your first payment...?

Re: Juniper/Barclay 10 day hold on funds

I transfer from my bank, and it appears on the Juniper site the day after I send it, which is as it should be.

That is one thing I dont like about the card. They can initiate a ten day hold on any payment they consider large at any time.  Not sure how true this is but a friend (someone I kinda trust) actually said this caused him to be charged a late fee when his payment was scheduled for the due date.
 
Sucks especially when hey have your money in a matter of days. Hasnt happened to me yet but just to make sure I pay te minimum on the day the statement falls and anything else is scheduled on the due date


BTW watch out for CLDs.. If they think you have too much avail credit ANYWHERE they have a habit of lowering limits

Juniper does credit the payment when it is made, but the funds are not available for use.

I had a similar experiance with Credit One Bank.  They held my 1st payment, however we have been perfect friends ever since.

In that case i have no idea if they ever held me or not.  Only use the card every blue moon.

New reson to hate this card

[ Edited ]
I've heard tales of this card's infamous credit limit decreases, I have had my card for a year now.  Never late never over limit don't use it much.  Finally took a close look at my credit report and these people have been softing my file 4Xs a month.  What the heck.  Seems like they are just looking for anything they can find.  Haven't had a CLD or anything its just the thought that not only are they doing it monthly, and most banks only do that the first six months, these folks are peaking into my file on a weekly basis.

Re: New reson to hate this card

I received a credit limit decrease from Barclays/Airtran Visa. I happened to call today to ck the bal and my CL went from $1500 to $250. When I got home I had a letter from Barclays telling me about the decrease.  The reason given is too many inquiries and too many new cards.  When I started my credit recovery it was the very 1st card applied for and approved. Oh well. Did a bal trsfr and put the card in the do not use file. I guess it wasn't meant to be.

Off topic....credit4me I noticed you aggressively increased your scores in a 9 month period of time...I'm new to the forum and trying to do a 100 point turn in the next six months if possible. Can I ask what your method was?
