If you are looking to apply for the Barclays US Airways card and wish to help a brother or sister out by allowing them to refer you for the card, they will benefit from some bonus miles and you will benefit from 50k in miles. The offer is only good until January 18, 2015 so you would need to apply by then and get approved for the referring person to get the bonus miles. If interested, just PM the next person on the list with your email address as the thread moves along. If you are on the list and get a referral, please post and let people know who is next up for a referral. If someone has received a referral, please move to the next person on the list. I will also update the current order and other can help with that too.
So if you apply, please show some love for the following people:
If you want to offer a referral to a specific person because they helped you with credit repair or you just want to because you want to, then that's okay too. If you want to keep it private, just do it by PM and don't worry about posting in the thread.
If you received the referral email from Barclays and want to be added to the list, please let us know and I will update the order and add you.
If you are not ready to apply now, it looks like the card will be around until March 31, 2015.

Now about me.
I am working to clean up my credit. I have a student loan that is currently under deferment until 02/2016. Back in 2014, When it went to repayment phase, I was overseas. By the time I cam back in Aug 2014, the loan was already 180 Days late. I applied for Econ Harship that was granted and back dated to Feb 2014(The original date when the repayment was due). I have recently noticed that it is being reported to my Credit File as 180 days late despite Econ Hardship Deferment back dating.I disputed with the CRA but it came back as "updated" with same late data.
I think my question is how I can resolve this with the CRA. The OC does not seems to understand that Econ deferment means as if the loan is being paid as agreed, and unwilling to report a removal of late status. My understanding is that when deferment is back dated it reads as no default has been occurred and loan is being paid as agreed. Is it possible that contest it of justify it through precedents are legal aspects. I may be misunderstanding. Please help me.
About 4 years ago, my husband and I pulled our heads out of the sand and realized we had over $80,000 in credit card debt. We signed up with a credit counseling company (Credability, which is now Clearpoint). Some of the accounts were late when we started. We have missed a few payments over the years, but, for the most part, we have paid $1,674 monthly towards these cards. As of today, we owe just over $7,000 and are going to be able to pay them all off in the next few weeks.
We both have negative comments on our credit reports for some of these late accounts. What can we do to get them off asap?
My federal student loan went into default and I started getting garnished in Feb. 2014. The loans report as 4-6 separate line items on my credit that are bad debts.
Since I am essentially paying the loan monthly, shouldn't the collector (DOF sold the account) be reporting the payments to the collection agency?
Right now, it's still listed as simply bad debt.
Thanks for any help or guidance you can provide.
