The only thing I can think of open123 is when I opened the acct last year; it was at 0% so for maybe the first 2-3 months I paid a little more than the min. It was at 0%, so I took advantage.
I have literally made an avg pmt size of prob $2k.
I told the rep that too. I asked him to check my payment history and look at how big of payments I made. It was for this account, no other accts.
What was your balance when they decreased it to 2750 initially? Was it 0? If so that's kind of odd because it's not really balance chasing. I'm wondering if they saw something else that might have spooked them.
These stories stink...I remember getting my May CLI and the letter reading how great it was and that I could use my new "spending power" to take a trip or make a major purchase. Of course, the fail to mention that doing that might just result in AA. I don't know, I think there are a lot of unethical things going on with a lot of companies

When it comes to Barclays, here's my view. They're *not* Amex or Chase; heck, they're not even Citi. At this point, once pass the 6 month clawback signing bonus threshold, just close their accounts if institute any AA.
At this point, if I even so much as see their number on my caller id, I'm just going to start closing their accounts and call it "self defense."

Thanks for that reminder, Ron! Lol This is why I NEVER want a BOA card. Getting Citi was a mistake. No more credit mistakes!
I might just close out Barclay's myself in a few months. It was my first Amex, although quite obviously not a "true" Amex.
Citi is not any good any more. I used to get CLI from them every 6 months. Only a few are good like US Bank, Amex, Discover, Cap 1, Chase.
