Any interesting perks to share? Not too familiar except the low APR and no fee BT

The card comes with a community, which has a forum similar to this one. Questions are asked and thoughts are shared. Depending on what's most in demand Barclays may take action and make the requested changes, improvements, etc.. Also their is a giving program where all card members receive a portion of the earnings the card brings in. The amount also varies on the number of card holders, card referrals, and how many are in good standing.

It is a nice card to have. I received a free t shirt as part of their anniversary. Overall, with relatively low interest it is good to have in the collection.

I had this card for a while. I finally just merged the credit line with another Barclaycard. The concept is interesting but I didn't feel that they really wanted to listen to the community. The biggest win for the card is the lower APR. Since I never carry a balance and don't do transfers, it really didn't matter to me. I wish they had a little rewards at least to make me want to use the card more. It's also hard to get used to the BRIGHT orange in your wallet as well. Good luck with it.

At one point there was a poll to change the design but nothing has come about. I am still hoping they do as it is ugly to me with those colors.
