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 Smiley Happy.

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 Smiley Tongue 

 

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.


Yeah, back to a seedling because of Huntington Bank offering me $150 to open a checking account... Well of course I had to app for the Voice card while I was at it....
