Re: barclays experience

I have their reward card and had called them a few times. They're very friendly. I love the card. It's my everyday card now since I can earn points for basically anything. I got their 10k points from first time usage and 750$ the first 3 months. Redeemed it and it was painless. Posted to account within 2 days. Love it that's all I have to say.

Re: barclays experience

I have the BarclayCard Rewards Card as well. I hit 6 months last month and had steady use of it and was instantly upped $1,000 on the credit line. I have nothing but great things to say about Barclay Card as a customer and well as an employee either :smileyhappy:.

Re: barclays experience

I also like this card. Was approved last August for a $500 CL. At the 6 month mark I got an auto CLI to $1500. I use the card a lot because of the rewards and make multiple payments each month. Also, I have opened MANY new cards with now over $35K+ in limits since Barclays approval with no problems.

Re: barclays experience

I have no complaints with Barclays.  I first opened the Rewards MC with 10K signup bonus.  Points posted immediately aftr spend was met.  At the 6 mos mark, I received an auto CLI of $2.2K.   I was pleasantly surprised when I learned that CVS, Walgreens and Targeet are coded as grocery stores, so that was a bonus 2%.

 

I recently got the Arrival. 

 

No bad experineces with them - completely satisfied.

Re: barclays experience

I like the rewards card as well.  I've not had a bad experience with them and recently have gotten some CLI's, although the first auto CLI came after a year of having the card.  But that's because I had went on out of control app spree :smileytongue: 

 

Whenever I call they've been super nice and helpful.  Overall I would recommend them.

Rhaeny, I got my Barclay card end of January 2014. I have since opened up Amex Bce, Discover it, and a Chase Freedom card...do you think I'll be okay with Barclay opening 3 new cards?

Re: barclays experience

After a year a half I have not gotten a CLI.  I haven't been treated bad by customer, I just don't get CLIs.  I actually switched to using the FNBO Amex because the rewards are the same and they raised my limit without any hassle or a hard pull.  In fact they doubled my previous limit, my FNBO limit is about 3x that of Barclays and is one-third the age of it.  I also had some issues when I first opened it.  They did however lower my APR yesterday when I asked.



Rethink every purchase you make, before you make it. Use the card with the best rewards. Pay in full each month. Redeem rewards often. Use the cards online shopping for more discounts. Smile, knowing that being thrifty allows you to actually get more out of the same amount of money!
