2013 Barclaycard Ring card reviews?

Postby FutureBillionaire » Wed Mar 06, 2013 10:16 am

I received a mailer for this card. It says that I can help vote to determine the features and benefits of the card and share in the estimated profits of the card. Does anyone have this card? Has anyone received this mailer?

Barclays must really want you to get their cards. http://creditcardforum.com/general-credit-card-talk/5873-barclays-credit-card-good.html

The only cards of theirs I find worthwhile are Priceline, Sallie Mae and NFL (for the sign up bonus).

It looks like Ring is an 8% APR card.

Man, I get a ridiculous number of mailers from them. Chase literally still sends me 2 or 3 Freedom, Slate, or Sapphire mailers EVERY OTHER DAY!

Mind you, I already have the Freedom and the Sapphire. I ended up contacting chase to give me the updated bonus offers for both of those cards.

If they actually did what they said they were going to do, this would be intriuging. I think that this card could end up like the cash +. Or, it could end up as an armpit scratcher.

It still seems like it's a good choice if you are looking for a low APR no AF option. Am I wrong?
