Barclays approved BT $2000 over my credit limit

I made a mistake and BT into a New Barclays world master card with "0" interest for 15 months by doing the same amount twice. The 2nd BT request just popped on my Barclays transaction and showed me $2000

over my limit. I spoke to Barclays and was told that since BT went thru, my credit line when the new statement is cut will be the amount that I am over the limit. She said there was no overlimit fee om World Master Card.

I am a little stunned since when I got the card 7 days ago and I called back door for a higher CL they said NO!

Umm, I don't know how much I would believe that. Did they come from the same card or two different cards? You could call and say it was an accident if Barclays doesn't increase the CL as mentioned. I would call the EO or UW about it and talk with them if you only spoke with front line CSRs. This could look really bad on your reports if this doesn't work out. Barclays is a conservative creditor and I would be sure not to start out on the wrong foot.

 

Can you pay this down quickly?

 

The BT fee will also put you over $120.

My Barclays world card reports as "flexible spending" which I thought allows you to go over the limit. Maybe that is what happened.

It would allow some overage, but it seems like a stretch in this case to allow double the limit with no internal history. I would just be concerned that it will report 2k over limit on reports. Hopefully I'm wrong.

In addition, the overage will be due in full by the following statement period, even if approved as "flexible spending".

he didn't say his CL was only $2k,

 

just that the double BT caused it to go $2k over the limit.

I guess I assumed the CL was $2k because the OP said they did the same amount twice and went $2k over limit.

 

You're right because it could have been a $6k CL with 2 $4k BTs or something like that.

 

I'm surprised they allowed that and I imagine that the OP will have to pay that part off in the first month.

      Hi all.
       
      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.
       
      Happy apping!!

      Noticed this on the Barclays site. Any thoughts on this? Is there a BOA US Air product I don't know about? I think there use to be a BOA US Air debit card...

      Hey Everyone. Happy holidays. Barclays gave me a credit line increase on there own for 650.00. I have had the card for 7 months. Started at 1,000. I called and asked for 10k and was declined. I have no baddies on my TU. Can I call to recon that decision? Let me know.

      Hello everyone. Happy holidays. Received an automatic credit line increase from Barclays today. (Got that card thanks to the info on this site) I was waiting for my sixth month anniversary to call and ask for an increase. I started with 1,000 and they increased it by 650.00 Can I still call to see if they will give me more? Let me know.
