My Barclay CC was cancelled

Hello everyone, the weirdest thing happened to me today. Last month I applied for credit on the Apple's website to buy an IPad 2, I was approved for up to $750.00, they sent me a Barclays Visa. Yesterday I received an offer for credit increase online, so I submitted it and was declined, so I called the Barclays backdoor number and not only they said no, they told me that they have to close my account because I have to many new accounts. Weird.

Barclay strikes again.  They are known for being VERY sensitive to having other accounts/inquiries show,  up to 6 or even 12 months after your account is opened.

 

How many new accounts do you have on your credit reports, besides Barclay ?

Was that just a box at the top when you login saying 'Boost your buying power, Request a credit line increase today"?? if so that has been there since I opened my account

Anyway I did buy the IPad but I can't use the credit card anymore after today. I'm going to pay off my balance and forget Barclays exist.

Another Barclays closure thread. Still don't think this is the norm but they really are sensitive to new accounts. Every time I get the itch to app one of these app's seems to pop up. I'm going on 3 1/2 months app-free since I opened Barclays. Only 2 1/2 more months till I can app again LOL.

So are they going to let you pay off the IPad in installments/financing?? Or did they stick you with the full balance since they cancelled the card??
