1) GiveBack program lets you see profit and loss statements and you get a cut of the profits.

 

2) 8% APR, 1% CB fee, no annual fee

 

3) I guess cardmembers shape how the card turns out...

Re: The official Barclaycard Ring Thread

The 1% forex fees aren't bad. 

 

Maybe I'm wrong but I think a lot of people carry credit card debt, or think they "might" in an "emergency", so the 8% is appealing to many.  I think this from watching Suze Orman.  LOL.

Logged into my account, it splits.  Also, while in the account screen, you can click back and forth effortlessly to get into your other Barclay card.

 

Link in Barclay Ring account area to Performance (check out their profits, etc.) isn't live presumably because its so new.

 

Also, they said they were allocating $2000 to my Ring card, yet my new card shows a $5000 line.  Gonna call to verify...

 

*Update*

 

Yup, automated says $5000 too...humble surprise...  :smileyhappy:

When you enter your username and passcode, the screen should have side-by-side boxes allowing you to go back and forth between accounts.

 

Inside either account, the upper left hand side will have a link, too, so you can seamlessly go back and forth.  Took my online account area 20 minutes to update.

Re: The offical Barclaycar​d Ring Thread

I currently have 6 inquiries on my TU. Three of them are over a year old and the other three are under a year old.

 

I am interested in the barclaycard ring to transfer some balances to a lower APR card. I know Barclay is sensitive to new accounts/too many inquiries. Is 6 too many for them?

Just as a heads up, the Barclay Ring suggests to have a 680+ for approval.
