Barclay's Bank/US Airways Dividend Miles MasterCard gave me no options when my husband was faced with unemployment. Despite years of timely payments when we were faced with a severly reduced income, we were told there were no options available to us as we did not meet the requirements for any programs. When I asked about the criteria, I was told there was none. When I asked to speak to another person, I was told a computer makes those decisions. I am stuck with 29.99% interest and a balance I will never get paid. Thanks a lot. I will never fly US Airways again or trade with Barclay's bank in any way. Shame on these credit card sharks for poor business practices. Taxpayers bail out the banks and take advantage of those who are suffering financial setbacks
Barclay card has an alliance with APPLE to finance their products sold to students and the public at large...
Choice Hotels has recently switched their "Choice Privileges Rewards" program to Barclay Bank Visa card.
Initially when applying for the card on the recommendation of Choice Hotels, I was told the card had been approved and their was a great deal of trouble actually getting the card mailed. it took several weeks to receive the approved card.
Today I received my first statement by e-mail from Barclay Bank and they do not have charges up to date.
Their statement came by e-mail with instructions on how to remit by e-mail or telephone. It took serious effort to contact a live customer service agent to request a paper statement to be mailed to me. They seemed to be reluctant to provide mailed statements. Their system seems to be geared to causing customer to incur late charges and penalty fees.
Based on the experience to date with Barclay Bank, it appears that my checks mailed in payment on this account will have to be by Certified Mail with Return Receipt Requested as it is obvious Barclay Bank is not consumer oriented.
Based on my brief experience with Barclay Bank I recommend that consumers stay as far away from them as possible, in my brief relationship with them they have been nothing but trouble.
I keep receiving this in my inbox. I have attached the letter.
Is this true? I am concern, the bank is asking me full personal detais which are very sensitive.

So please help me out in remmitance of this money into my a/c.
I am disgusted at Barclays Bank. My mother recently died and has banked with them for about 40 years at least. She had some money in an ISA which I did not kno wand the interest they are paying on this is 0.10%. How can they be so greedy?
They are charging massive interest rates on their credit cards. The interest rates on loans etc are much more than this. This is just sheer theft. They are a disgusting greedy lot and somethin gshould be done about the English banks. They are just immoral and dishonest and the way they try to bully people who do not pay off loans on time is disgusting.
I have taken credit card of Barclays. I used my card for the payment of mobile bill of Rs. 2900. Within the due date I payed 2800 and because of the executive submitting late in the office i was charged 3400 something for late payement.
Later after 6 months with the total interest it was 4000 something. I was told to pay 1000 Rs and they will reverse back my interest rate applied on my card. Even after paying 1000 Rs they gave a call 3 months later i.e. on March saying that you need to pay 300 Rs more to stable your account. I said no problem and I paid it. After 1 month later I again got a call saying that please pay 100 Rs now and you will get full and final settlement on your interest rate inspite of my principle amount being 0 Rs. I paid that and now after 1 month back I am again getting call saying that there was some technical problems and you need to pay 250 Rs more. What the hell is going on do i need to pay regularly or what ???. Yesterday I got a call saying that your settlement letter has been dispatched and now today they are saying please the rest amount.
Recently I have some mail in may ID. That was very shaking to me. Because that saw I have winning big prizing money to the Micro soft MSM Lottery. Please u will verify the cheating mails. I send the mail copy in under. Please clear the details that all real or cheating.
Note : I have paste the messsage which i got through mail...

Wow, what a joke of a bank. Barclays Bank's customer service department is by far THE worst I have encountered. I am surprised Frontier Airlines has not moved on to a different bank to administer the frequent flier credit card offer. The customer service at the bank is the worst I have ever experienced.
If I did not love Frontier Airlines and want the mileage credit I would have dumped Barclays Bank long ago.
Seriously, I do not understand how a company (Barcays) can stay in business with the poor customer service, lack of follow through, incompetent employees, not well-trained employees on their own products (e. g. stating they don't offer a "Pay Pass" credit card through Frontier Airlines, when they do!!!), weak supervisors, not calling back within 24 hours as they state a manager will do and managers not even aware of what the problem is.
This goes back to mid-May when I was sent a new credit card because I was "upgraded" to a better card. Two months later and nearly 30 phone calls and I don't have resolution and continue to get incompetent customer service employees who give me incorrect information and do not seem to care to fix the situation. Stay clear of getting one of these cards if you can help it. (I read the negative post by a person who "was roped" into one there at the Denver Airport.)
I am so disappointed in this product, Barclays Bank, any Barclays cards, especially the Frontier Airlines Barclays MasterCard, the incompetent call center they use in Manila, the uniformed bank customer service personnel in the U.S. who do not follow through and seem uninterested in helping, Frontier Airlines.
There are other better choices out there. Be aware - Mike

I used to work for Barclays, at 18 i was offered a high paying seemingly stable job where i could help people...
I have a student i-bank account in Barclays. I am a female international student. Every time I do any bank transaction or for that matter even speak to the customer care executives, they ask me for my passport. I was even turned away once for not having carried one with me. I feel so insulted every time this happens.
What is it? Am I a terrorist to them? or is a transaction of £50-£500 a matter of national security? Is this a rule? Must I continue keeping mum over it?
Closed credit card account out, they allowed a charge made after the account was closed. Paid for that charge, they then charged me late fees and interest. they were supposed to waive them, and did not. Several phone calls to them, customer service peoploe can not thnk for them selves, they can only read of a scropt and will not help me.
Supervisor are never available. They supposedly are supposed to revie my account and never do.
they are rude and inconsiderate. Would not give me the address of the President to write a letter. I am very frustrated and refusing to pay this money.
I used a balance transfer offer. The agreement was that they would not charge interest, and then they started...
Mike James, Head Private lending is a con-man and a thief. he stole more that $3, 000 over a two (2) year...
Paid offJuniper credit card; went to check balance was at zero a couple of weeks later and found they had put...
Today was a first for me. Juniper Master Card. Juniper increased my Rate from 7.99 to 23.24 APR. Their reason, my payment was late. Mind you, the payment at best is 4 days late.
As a rule I pay all payments via bill pay accounts and until this late posting of my payment, I have never missed or been late with a payment with their firm. After heated conversations with them my opinion and actions of Juniper are as follows: They are crooks. Juniper Master Card and this industry will continue to rob people unless they become regulated. The reasonable interest that they make on transactions are not enough, they subscript to greed and will not end their blood sucking practices without the applications of a strong hand that is heavier then the one they currently swing.
My responses to their actions are as follows.
1) I closed my account on the spot.
2) My wife closed her account.
3) I have issued payment in full to bring the balance to zero. (I refuse to allow them an opportunity to make one extra penny at my expense.)
4) I will write both to the state and federal Congress and Senate concerning their policies.
5) My memory is long, and I will protest their action at every opportunity and event that I attend. I believe that I come in contact with no less than 30 people per day. Do the math (30 people * 360days). I will commit to this campaign for at least one year none stop.
6) I will never knowingly support any business or associated business related to Barkley Bank and any of it associated firms and or holding.
Note the number 6. The number should really be 666.
Shame on you Juniper Credit Card and the members of its senior management that would support such a business tactic and strategy.
