So I got an offer from Barclays..............

A 9.99% APR BT promo through 5/1/2013:

 

- $10 fee or 4% whichever is greater on the BT

 

Anyone else recieve this type of offer?

 

It actually sounds like a good offer if I didnt have PSECU but they cant beat no-fee BT's @ 2.9%!

My PSECU Visa is offering no fee BT's through 12/13 with 2.9 APR, I'm happy with that, do not need anymore new accounts.

Re: So I got an offer from Barclays..............

Sorry to say but that is a pretty lame BT offer from Barclays. This is what's under my Citi BT offer,

 

* 1.99% APR on BT through 08/2013

* 0% APR BT AND purchases through 04/2013

 

$5 fee or 3% whichever is greater on the BT

In My Wallet:
Citi Forward (12/2010) | Citi Dividend (05/2011) | Chase Freedom (11/2011) | GECRB/PayPal (05/2012)
Discover it (07/2012) | AMEX BCP (09/2012) | TD/Target REDCard (10/2012) | Chase Ink Classic (11/2012)
BofA BBR (04/2013) | FNBO/Overstock.com (02/2014) | Barclaycard Arrival (04/2014) | FIA/Fidelity AMEX (04/2014)

Re: So I got an offer from Barclays..............

it sounds like they are sending out the same offer, but tweaking it for each member. I too received the offer, but it was for 0% for 12 months, ALONG with 0% on purchases made on the card, for the same length of time.
