    Hi all,

    Doing some research on some new Barclaycards that were made available in the past month. Are there any forum members that have experience using a Barclaycard? If so, do you live stateside or abroad? Just trying to clear up some questions I have. Thanks!

    I have the rewards platinium mc. The interest rate is high, however there is no annual fee, no acct set up fee and I was qualified for the 6 months no interest on purchases promo. After the 0% interest period expires, I will no longer carry a balance but pay it in full every month. Barclays offers special point promotional periods for purchases such as gas or groceries, however personally I'm not too overly excited about points. Don't know if this card reports monthly to the CBs. Their website is easy to negotiate, make payments, and check balances.

    Thank mijd! Sounds pretty standard but I have very little experience with these cards so I wanted to hear from an actual cardholder. Much appreciated.

    I know that Barclay bank does a lot of the Frontier airline credit cards. So, if you are looking for a credit card with airline rewards and you fly on Frontier that would be something to check out. I am not sure if it would be better then the new Capital One Venture card. That one seems to be a pretty sweet deal. Thanks! Heather with BoostMyScore.NET
