Great Rewards Card!!!
Fuzzy6665 Cardholder

Great sign on bonus if spend certain amount, 2 points per dollar spent. Can use points to pay yearly fee. And when redeeming points 5% back in points.  Sure they cut redemption from 10% to 5%, but it is still an excellent card. On certain excursions and stores while on vacation it has showed up to where I can use points to pay for excursion also.  Great card love it!!!  It’s a keeper.  And I use allot of travel cards and this is the only one I hold onto.

Canceled my card for not using ridiculous. Made all my 

payments. Don’t bother if you pay your bills or don’t like 

to carry a balance.

An everyday driver card for me
fluxcapacity Cardholder

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.

This is a HORRIBLE financial institution. They charged me fraudulently for a transaction and after more than a month in dispute, I managed the issue myself with the company who charged me (I did Barclays job for them). 

Aside from that, they’ve just lowered my credit limit from 5500 to 1400 without notice - my credit score is over 700 and I updated my income recently because I’ve had a decent increase. 

Their reps over the phone are the WORST people to talk to. They either have no clue what you’re talking about and are NOT financially educated or CLEARLY don’t want to do their job of taking calls. 

Haven’t closed the card because it’s going to further impact my credit but not dealing with this “bank” may be worth it.

Just carry a zero balance and they will close your account for you! #Don'tuseit.
