I got this card 3 years ago. Recntly I had my idenity stolen and had trouble logging in, so they just closed my account for that reason. Who does that? I had 0 balance but wanted to keep the card in case.

They did the same to me, first the lowered my credit limit which put me over my available balance, then I paid the card completely off and charged a few things here and there and then they closed my account. I was never late, and a good customer for 2 years. I will never get another card with them, their excuse: after your profile review..blah..blah...blah...

pathetic customer service, the credit card did not reach me for 15 days and they were not ready to send me via expedited mail without a $15 charge. Save your $$ and credit hit for better service providers that these.

Trickeries! Don't be fooled!

I applied for this card because they offered me zero percent APR on purchases. After two billing cycle, I realized I was being charged with the interest rate for purchases. I called customer service and was advised that the zero percent was for balance transfer only. i paid my balance in full right away and never again for this card! Do not be fooled!

Existing customer, had 2 credit cards plus saving accounts products. The oldest with a 7800 limit, the second with 2500 limit (through apple). They sold my 1st credit card with higher limit to a mediocre unknown company. I have since applied for their Barclays arrival plus credit card to replace my sold card. They raised my 2500 limit to 5500 without me asking, after I paid the balance down to 100. I had a 715 credit score, never missed a payment with them on both cards, 100% payment history on my credit report, with a 6 1/2 year old bankruptcy. They denied my initial application. I called them to review the application, and they asked me for additional information. They did a review and still denied my application because they feel i have sufficient limit with them. So i went from 7800 + 2500 extended to me to a sold credit card and an increase that i didn't ask for and you are penalizing me by denying an application because i have 50% of the limit that had in the beginning. THANK YOU BARCLAYS, you just lost a loyal customer.

After being a customer for four years and never missing a payment, I changed my method of payment from one bank to another. I made a payment and received a confirmation number and email saying my payment had been received. A few days later, I received an email from my bank stating my payment was rejected by Barclay. I called Barclay to rectify the payment and was advised I would not be charged a fee. A few days later, I was charged a “return fee”. I called Barclay and the representative, supervisor and manger refused to remove the fee stating they would not remove a return fee, only a late fee. Even after I made timely payments for over 4 years. I am paying this card off and on longer doing business with this company. They would rather lose a customer than to remove a $27 fee.

Failure to Follow Up
Bu11man7 Cardholder

Had a dispute with a merchant over a purchase.  Barclay Aviator Red Card dispute department took 2 months with no response.  They did not call the provided contacts (2) to collaborate the issue.  And, stated they could not do anything.  Barclay dispute department was worthless in this situation.

I don’t think cards should not have what is owed daily showing so you can clear the balance in full. There should be a law that c

Thought the Rewards Were Worth It
Flamingo052 Cardholder

Barclays decreaed my credit limit by 30% despite the fact that I paid over $800/ month on this account and never had a statement cut with a balance over $600. I used it to collect those Apple gift cards, but those 'rewards' aren't that great, and I don't need to do business with a company that destroys my credit rating with absolutely no warning this way. If this is the way they treat their GOOD payers how do they treat people when they have problems?
