Worst Customer Service of All

Agents speak broken English, you are not able to obtain email confirmation of ANY changes you request. Online chat is worthless because, once again, you receive no written confirmation of what you ask for. Over phone even Supervisor level confirms no email can be sent to customer verifying changes. The 60K miles suck you in, you do not get boarding lower than Zone 5, and ongoing service is terrible. Consider other carriers.

Lower credit limit

If you have a good standing credit history, DO NOT EVEN THINK APPLY FOR THIS CARD. They are gonna destroy your credit. I had a very good score and never had a late payments at all, but for no reason they are lower my credit limit almost to full balance and living available only $200- $300. and as of results of this, my score drops. They did this 3 times on me for no reason. Most benefits complete lye. THIS IS WORST CARD I EVER HAD. Never, never recommend this card to ane one.

Wonky online page, too high interest

Trying to pay online is a pain...site is unnecessarily complicated. And the interest rate is ridiculous. When my one year annual fee waived status is over, I'm cancelling.

This is the worst card I have ever had to use for large purchases. I use this card in business and whenever I try to use it for a large purchase it gets declined until I find out from the merchant and I call Barclay bank then they will authorize the charge. I understand this so I tried calling the bank and warning them the charge would be coming through and am always assured by a customer service representative that my account will be flagged for this purchase. It still takes 2 to 3 more phone calls before it is authorized. I have several other cards from other banks and do not have this problem. I am not the only one that has the problem, I have friends with this card and they have similar stories to mine. I am closing my accounts and going to the CITI American airlines card.
