Nice piece of work! Very informative ... had no idea. Likley, what is referenced in the article carries to other parts of their business model? Thanks!

Re: Barclays killing me.

I, too, was once a Barclays defender..... it will never happen to me-they must be doing something wrong.

Ha.

Re: Barclays killing me.

I've made an administrative decision!

 

In order to increase MY profitability, I have decided that down sizing is necessary.

 

Therefore, as CEO of my wallet, I have decided to take AA on THERE A$$!!

 

I'm canceling Barclays after I pay it off this month!!

Re: Barclays killing me.

You guys have me worried. I just received a cli to 10,000 on my Barclays Reward card. I don't know if thats a good thing or a bad thing now.

The Barclays Arrival+ has a very special niche in that it's a no FTF 2.1% CB MC card with secondary Chip + PIN support. I spend $3000+ a month outside the US in non bonus categories so it adds up fast.

Presumably other people have the Ring, SM, etc.

Not sure how Barclays and Synchrony are in the same group. Smiley Happy

The group includes:

 

Barclays - Jealous CLD's

 

Synchrony - Blue envelopes of DOOM

 

Comenity - Random(?) Account Closures

 

Have I missed anyone?


This definitely sums it up perfectly.

Re: Barclays killing me.

Brutal!  Just another Barclays' screws their customer story.  I've kept my lines the same (Ring 12.5 & NFL 8K), no bt's, no requests for apr reduction.  I use my cards occasionally, but they are far from my real swipers.  Staying under the radar with them.

Re: Barclays killing me.

Now it's my turn to defend Barclays.

Their credit card websites never crash it doesn't take long to log in in the checkout line at best buy or at the bar closing tab… to make sure your account is still open and has room.

Re: Barclays killing me.

I'm pretty much always on app sprees for bonuses and have yet to catch AA from Barclaycard. This on top of constantly hitting them up for 0% offers, lower base APR, Bonus point promos.

I even occasionally park a balance with them and pay it off in 6 monthly installments on the aforementioned 0% promos, often combined with a bonus spend.
