I have a Barclays Juniper issued card from them with USAirway miles rewards. Recently had a total balance payment put on hold -- you get the idea from others here. I was about to start using this card for monthly purchases and pay the total off each month as I found out they barely add anything additional to their minimum payments -- it's like 90% interest. Well I am not going to use this card period and I am going to ask for a refund of my annual fee as well as contact USAirways with my displeasure and concern. I have another USAirways card, a Signature VISA, thru Bank of America which is really good for minimum automatic payments as they take the payment out on the date the statement comes out so you don't pay interest on interest. In addition, a few years ago I disputed a charge with Barclays Juniper to no avail. DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH Barclays Juniper, A TRULY DESPICABLE BUSINESS! I cannot believe what they are getting away with!

Junny did this to me once- back when I had 2 Junny cards- using bill pay I Swaped the PIF payments- so one had a credit and one not PIF-
Called them and they said they could not fix this internal- so I sent another payment for the rest of the balance on the under paid one. They then reversed all 3 payments placed a 10 day hold and then it took 3 weeks for them to send the check for the credit balance.
A PITA for something that could have been very simple.

Quick though: do you guys notice that a lot of these issues occur with the co branded cards and not a straight junny card..
reason i am asking is that my boyfriend has a junny mastercard and they have not cld him or checked his report or anything...he just uses it in case of emergancys (when places dont take discover) and is currently sitting at zero once the payment we made post on monday.
