what card or reward kept you loyal to barclay? with your scoreI would've got a better card, unless there's a card  or benefit i'm not aware of in the barclay line up which is possible since I never even looked at those ccards cause it almost never gets discussed here.


also don't close the barclay account keep your oldest account alive, i would just keep buying only toillet paper with that card every few months to just to show them how you feel about their recent lack of customer service =)

Originally, it was my rebuilder card. I chose it because I was an avid Barnes&Nobles shopper. So it's 5% percent savings when paying with your B&N MC at B&N,

plus1 point for each dollar you spend anywhere, and at 2,500 points, you get the $25 gift cards.


Once I stopped shopping at B&N, it became pointless. Just the card I reached for out of habit. A bad habit at that. 


But yea, toilet paper.. haha.. I just may do that Smiley Very Happy

Another example, in addtion to my own, is why I refuse to do business with Barclay and Capital One.  There cards served their purpose with me for a while and now I've moved on.  Never again.
