Good value with less frills
LazyTraveler Cardholder

Love the flexible redemption, 5% back while redeeming and great sign-on bonus. Would be good if they could remove the minimum redemption ($100) required for travel.

don't value customer loyalty.

I had a cc with Barclay for several years.   I was in very good standing with them by ensuring I did not miss any payments, etc.   I called one day to ask for a reduction in the APR because it was the highest out of all my other cards, and they said "we're sorry, we are unable to help you with this request at this time".  So I said in response, please cancel my card and close my account....she said "really?"  and I said she closed it and that was it.   Will never get an account with them again.

So let me get this asked to close your account and she said yes. What did you expect them to do? beg you to stay with them?

What a lame reason to leave them. I’ve had barclays for many years and love their card and service. Thumbs down to your comment.

Avoid Barclay Bank issued cards at all cost! I understand they are in business to make money, and they are by charging merchants a fee which is fair and understandable. BUT, they make the most money by charging you fees of all kinds. Even if you have a valid reason, they will make no exception to removing the fee. Stay away from them and use a company that is reputable like American Express or Citicard. (Any card that Costco reccommends; you know they've done their research on them.)

Uh, credit cards have fees. If the fees are unfair, can you describe them?

Your comment does nothing to help understand the strengths and weaknesses of this card. Certain people. come out agead even with the fees. You kinda have to calculate that in when choosing the card that’s right for you. I’ve had barclays for years and they’ve been more than reasonable with waiving fees, as long as I dont abuse the system.
