Discover does, through their online portal. They have a 5% on Apple Online. It doesn't cover Macbook pros, but everything else is covered, including iPhones, iPads, etc.

Barclays at it again unfortunately. I suspect during one of their AR's on your report, something changed that their algorithm or what have you did not like. This sucks but it's what we've come to know of barclays.

Lol. Discover actually has a pretty good online portal (known as Discover Deals)that a lot of people don't take advantage of. They have 5% cahback on Apple online, Walmart online (if your local Walmart has the item, you can buy online and pickup in store), Sears online, Old Navy, Dell, heck, even Groupon.

Re: Barclays is a fickle b****

Did they close it? Or did you close it? 

Got some pruning to do... No more new cards!

If I'm understanding you previously transferred a Barclays balance to DCU, and this time transfer a balance to Barclays?  So 1 from Barclays and 1 to Barclays.

 

They might think you are shuffling debt.

 

Like others have said, you won't miss them.  I'm closing Sallie Mae before the change.  Good luck in your future endeavors OP
