Just looked at my 16' summary and I see I only run about $200/mo through their card. I'll probably be next.

 

It's in your "statements"


There are many low-spend Barclaycard accounts that don't get CLDs, so long as they get some spend every few months. Did you use it lightly throughout 2016? Or occasionally early on in the year, and not at all for the last few months?

 

My barely-used Arrival has an $8k CL and I spent about $400 on it in 2016 (the online PIN has been occasionally useful in travel). Importantly, I haven't gone more than about 90 days between transactions.

Spend: BofA PR + WWFCR, BBP, Schwab Platinum, Freedom x 2, Costco, Discover

SD/AAoA Ballast: Arrival, CFU, DC, ED, QS

That's about right, I grab it every few months and use it for few hundred.  I actually just cut a $900 statement and I'm going to leave like $20 on it and pay interest for a day.

 

@My utilization will be 10k heavy in like 3 days (taxes/med) so i'll let ya know, lol. 13k total @ 0% won't be paid off for 3 months. I just had surgery and am taking the winter off.

 

Last year I wrote some 2k checks and deposited in my account for a month and they didn't CLD. strange. but, haven't had an auto CLI in 2 year, lol.

Re: Barclays CLD

No 15' summary, seems rare to have one on an MC.

Re: Barclays CLD

Wow. They are a super jealous company lol I closed my barclaycard a little while ago and it was my only card with them. Honestly, I would never apply for any of their cards except for the ring. You made a good decision. I would be super upset if they decreased my credit limit.

Re: Barclays CLD

I'm guessing they didn't like something-but maybe it was for non use. I have not used it in about 90 days or so. It is my last go to card.
Either way I think it is sh;//y they treat their customers this way, especially ones that never have done anything wrong in the slightest.
Still is making me angry thinking about it. I don't care that I am "losing" a card because it is my choice. I could easily keep it open and maybe in 6 mo get it back. But it is the principle of it.
Guess I'll wait and see what the letter and the message center reply says.

Thx all for the posts. Nice to know this is not very rare and that I did the right thing by closing it. Eff em.

Re: Barclays CLD

It will be interesting to see what Barclays does to my Sallie Mae account after the change over March 1.

I almost max'ed all 5 % categories for the whole year in 2016 on Sallie Mae - 2016 spend = $14,335 .

Almost $700 in cash back for 2016. My activity will go to $0 starting March 1, but I'm not closing the

account. I'll let them do it.

 

I haven't had the slightest negative with Barclays up until the Sallie Mae cancellation. I would have rated

Barclays as the best bank to do credit card business with. If they had a single card with any appeal ro me,

I would continue to do business with them. I don't have any hard feelings over Sallie Mae, but I sure will miss it.

Re: Barclays CLD

I get so frustrated for these folks who try the best they can to please them only to have to go through this.

Re: Barclays CLD

I don't have Barclays because I always hear terrible things about them on the forums, also hear terrible things about them from people in real life, and am not especially interested in any of their products. Definitely though, what stands out to me is that most CC companies seem to have both people that love and hate them. You may hear a lot of people annoyed with Chase for instance, but you'll hear a lot of good comments too. With Barclays, all I ever hear is how awful they are. At best I'll hear people say something like, 'they're okay' or 'I haven't personally had a problem' but I never come across 'Ra! Ra! Barclays!' type people like I see with other companies.

 

So yeah, I wouldn't sweat it if I were you. It probably is the other approvals. From what I hear, Barclays very much wants to be your only/main card...which seems like such an unattainable goal considering their lukewarm products. Smiley Very Happy

Re: Barclays CLD

I'm sure it was but I only had 3 approvals since getting the card-and I closed 6-all store cards. I only have 8 cards total. Util is under 1% right now... never above 5 tops. My score was 628 when I got them and now it is 766 last Check. Perfect history. Still pisses me off. Not cuz I'll miss them but because what CreditMagic said. I have done nothing but try to do everything right and be perfect with my cards. Obviously I'm doing something right as my scores have really increased a lot.
I can't wait till they open today cuz I have been fuming all night and decided that I am not even going to let them reconsider. I'm going to call and close ASAP. It was a $2k limit. My last 3 approvals, US Bank, Chase, and Amex total $10k. Don't need them. Rewards and APR suck. Only thing that makes me sad is I wanted that Apple Card. Not cuz it's a great card but cuz I am an apple junkie. Just wanted it for some reason. Oh well. ...... C'est la vie Barclays.

Re: Barclays CLD

Lol, Dinosaur, go take a jump....Smiley Happy

DJ, sorry to hear this. It does suck especially when you are doing all the right things such as paying on time etc. If it was over a year or such of not using card i could jind of understand in that they want you to use it but its just plain ridiculous to do so just because you have other creditorsSmiley Sad.

I know you will hear we are small % of general poulation but when a lot of those small percentage of people are getting cld for ridiculous reasons well obviously somethings up. Be glad this happened in the beginning of your relationship not many years in. Me personally, id tell Barclays to pour themselves into a cup of tea and jump shipSmiley Wink
