Worse company ever
Jbowen29 Cardholder

We have this card and we always pay on time. They report incorrect information on your credit and to top it off they decreased my limit after i disputed the late payment. If i could give them no stars i would. The worse customer service as well. They never sent us notice of the decrease and when we called they couldn't even give us a decent explanation. By far the worse company ever!!!

Awful Customer Service
DinseyFan0713 Cardholder

Nobody at this company knows what they are doing - I had an issue and everytime I call back to deal with it I am told something completly different!  Will take them 3 MONTHS to refund an accidental payment that I made to them.  And it was a $6,000 payment.

Still haven't received the refund - that's just what I am estimating based on what one of the customer service reps told me.

Hurt my credit on their error
HBCOSFam Cardholder

We had a $13k limit. Went through hard times financially getting our business off the ground. It was maxed out for months, paying $400/month, with about $370 going to interest. We were never late, not even one late payment for over 4 years. We finally had some success with our business, put $5k towards the card to help our credit score due to high balance to limits. We were in the process of changing bank accounts and right after the $5000 payment, the account we were changing from was charged and declined by Barclay. We called right away, paid the minimum, even though a week before we paid $5000. Barclay decides to reduce our limit to $8000, and charges us the interest on top of that putting us over the limit, and so our credit score dropped even more. It's not a sympathy or favor thing, they just simply refuse to look at situations and errors on their part, and they supposedly have no control over what their computers decide. Their customer service is foreign and hard to understand, the lady I was speaking to cut me off several times and became very rude and judgmental. They should have recognized the $5000 payment before the minimum due and understood that we have never been late for the last 4 years since we received the card, and that they hurt us in a time that we are being responsible and working hard to pay down the balance to lower our balance to limit ratio. Horrible company. This will be the first card we pay off and cancel. I laugh at the paragraph above... they are not about helping, but only about making money.

The worst
Heya12 Cardholder

They'll never lower your APR once it goes up to the maximum if any special offer you have expires. They don't even run it to see if they can lower your APR they just say they don't do it. Maybe one day in the future they will. They'll lower your credit limit out of nowhere.

bad just bad
FenderGuyAz Cardholder

I’m guessing Barclays is in trouble since they are closing and reducing credit lines of its consumers. Got denied with a score of 800+ due not having enough credit history with my one card Capital One which I had for 4 years and 8 months, perfect history with it hence the 800+ score. Anyways had to call Business Reconsideration to get a manually approval of $5k credit line.  Did a 0% APR balance transfer under $2k and of course I am going to apply for other credit cards, why would I just have 2 cards when I’m rebuilding my credit by having more cards? Barclays reduced my credit card line from $5k to $3230, changing my credit usage from 47% to 83% due to me opening up other cards. When the 0% APR balance is paid within a year, I will be closing the card, don’t need to be with such a scumbag company that screws over its consumers.

One of the worst banks you can think of
Glance89 Cardholder

Barclays is one of the worst banks you can think of. Had one closed years ago; using this AA MasterCard because of AA and again they treat you like ****. Just finished the one hour phone call with Barclays and closed my account. I am so cheap to arrugue with them for one hour for $28, therefore I don’t deserve to be their customer. Bye Barclays!

Worst Customer Service EVER
flakefreezone Cardholder

I've owned several Barclay's cards in the past --- only because of their promotions - even though I was never thrilled with their customer service.  I currently have a Barclay's Arrival MasterCard, which I have used extensively for the past several years.  The very first time I filed a dispute (a hotel claimed I stayed there when I didnt'), Barclay's did NOTHING to help.  First, they claimed to have sent me the merchant's statement, which they didn't.  Then, they sent several sheets of completelly BLACKED OUT information.  After stringing me along for 4 MONTHS, and insisting I provide a written account of my dispute, plust proof, etc., they said the case was closed because too much time had elapsed (!!)  Not to mentione that each time I called, I was put on hold for upwards of 20 minutes.

I finally got through to the office of the President, who bascially told me there was nothing they could do.

After I finish redeeming my current benefits, I will cancel the card, and never ever deal with Barclay's credit card services again.

Not good
buffycat52 Cardholder

They have lowered my limit twice for no reason. I did have a high balance at one time but paid it down only to find out that my limit was lowered. Never missed a payment.
