An everyday driver card for me
Helpful to 3 out of 3 people

I've had this card for about 4 months and use it every day for every purchase, which I pay off several times throughout the course of the month.  I also have a BarclayCard Apple Rewards card that I've had for about 4 years.  I've had to call customer service for several reasons over the years (some for this card, several times for the other one), always had good experiences.  There was a point signup bonus for spending a certain amount within the first three months and after I hit the requirement for the bonus it was immediately transferred into my account -- they transferred it before I even knew I'd hit the mark.  I haven't had much experience with transactions being declined with this card (haven't travelled much yet or put really high ticket items on it though), but I don't see it as that unusual for any account to get triggered with unusual spending habits.  I've had that with almost every card I've had, I had it some with my AppleCard and customer service has always been very quick to respond to these issues when I contact them.  Before I had this card I didn't realize it was possible to "transfer a limit" from one card to another but a customer service agent did this for me and I was able to immediately move 4K in limit from my Apple Card to this one within minutes over the phone.
