Worst card and service in industry!!!
davidshopsinvt Cardholder

Worst card and service in industry!! After 3 years, they lowered my credit limit out of the blue one day from $7k to $3k. I have a solid 680-710 score from month to month depending on balances, not a single blemish anywhere, and an Amex and several Citi cards with $15k limits. In the month prior to Barclaycard lowering my limit to $3k, I made a $1200 payment to them to pay off a promotional balance transfer before it expired. In the month they lowered my limit, I made a $300 payment. By lowering my limit, they caused this card to go from under 50% utilization to over 90% utilization which tanked my credit score by 20 points. It was already a worthless card and Barclaycard went the extra mile to make it useless and dangerous. I emailed customer service and "a manager" called me the next day to explain the bank could do whatever they want, whenever they want, without any notice to me. Stay away from this card and bank altogether.

Barclays not so good.
Anonymous Cardholder

Barclays pulls Fico scores not vantage so don't pay attention to what credit karma's approval odds are they're garbage.

Ongoing hidden fees
Anonymous Cardholder

I have a Barclay Visa card and decided to get the arrival card for travel purposes. During that time my fiance needed help paying for classes so I utilized one of their convience checks, Big mistake. Randomly they would decide to hit me with fees and I would have to fight with them everytime to get it resolved. Then we paid off the entire balance of the check 3 months before it was due. This month I get accessed another fee telling me that I have not paid off the check. My account balance was zero, so how the hell do I owe anything. Closing this card immediately, after a year and a half of nonsense.
