Happened to me the first time I made payment via Priceline's own online payment system (~$5k).
They gave me the run around but it was made available about 5-7 days later.
Have been using Chase Billpay since then and it hasn't happened since.
I think financial institutions consider the source when making funds available for new(ish) card holders.

Chases billpay system is setup in a way that the payment is funded (immediately taken from your account) when you setup the billpay.
If the $$ isn't there they billpay isn't processed. I think processes like these (and the reputation/size of the sending bank) makes the difference on the receiving end and how they treat your payment. Not saying its the only things that matters but it helps.

Ok, I've gotta ask the dumb question: How do you redeem points towards a NYOP purchase? I can't find any reference to the bonus value for redeeming towards NYOP nor can I find any link to using points toward a NYOP purchase on the Barclays website.

rated:
To get NYOP bonus, you go into the rewards redemption page and click on a NYOP purchase to redeem against. They are active for redemption for 90 days (instead of the standard 30). The $ amount looks the same, but when you click on it, you will see that the points required are less than 100/$.

For example, right now I have a $170.04 NYOP transaction I can redeem against, and it will cost 15,459 points, instead of 17,004. Nowhere on the site says what the conversion is, the values were determined empirically by others here on FWF.

Use the CC or pay with check? I've changed my mind a dozen times so far and it's due tomorrow.


Your post is an old post which I just saw. But people are paying taxes all the time so wanted, for you and others, to reference my own thread, here:

Link to Priceline/tax thread

where a poster has confirmed Barclays' treatment of tax payments as charges, not as cash advances.

After all, if Barclays treated the payment as a CA, nobody would ever use their Priceline card to pay tax of any sort.

regarding the redemption bonus.. it is normally 2x or 2% if redeemed towards a regular purchase, but it is 10-50% bonus if redeemed for a Priceline purchase depending on how large teh Priceline purchase is.
So my question is, is that bonus only applicable towards a "name your own price" purchase or is the bonus applied if you redeem the Cash Back /points towards ANY Priceline.com purchase? if I buy a plane ticket for $1000 on Priceline.com, and I have 66700 points ($667.00 regular Cash Back) can I redeem those points for the $1000 plane ticket? or does it have to be a $1,000 purchase from the "name your own price" program? I was thinking the special terms for "NYOP" purchases just meant you get 5% points/Cash Back on a NYOP purchase vs the regular 2%

ProfessorEd said:   Has anyone else had problems with payments not promptly making more credit available. I pad over $15,000 via their web site on the due date, to be taken from my bank account, and it was the next day, and their site showed the payment as having been made. Since the payment was via ACH, there was not the concern about a bad check that could have existed with a paper check.

However, my available credit did not reflect this for several days, preventing me from making a large purchase using it.

I have heard of cards placing hold on incoming money when there was a lot of activity and payments before the due date, but there was no attempt here to spend morel than the credit limit, and the payment came in after a month when only about $250 had been accrued (the sum owed was from the previous month). I presume this was a temporary glitch, but I wonder if it is likely to happen again, or likely enough so I should pay the bill before it is due.


Their payment system does lag. I really dont trust them with the rewards points. Few weeks ago, my $5k purchase points just vanished. I been using fidelity AMEX since then. Really fia is way better.

I just applied and was not instantly approved, which is really odd, as I have never been denied or held up with a credit card before. I recently applied for/received one other card (Sallie Mae) as I'm looking to revamp what cc's I use on a day to day basis.

Is there a number to call to push this through? I looked for one on the first page and didn't see any. I don't like waiting.

Here is an answer from earlier posts. The link and phone number is still active. Good luck.
NewFarmBoy said:   guardian44 said:   Experience so far could be better. Applied last Sunday with promise of instant decision. Instead got a "no decision". OK It was a Sunday. But now it's Thursday late and still I have no decision.I applied in Nov. (2011) and got a message: They need more time for decision about the application at the end of the online application.
Checked the status at the application site by Barclay:
https://www.barclaycardus.com/app/japply/checkstatus.do?default_...
Figured out that a letter with the denied application was prepared. I could download the pdf of it. Used the recommended Barclay backdoor number 866-408-4064 (Credit Analyst) Mo-Fr 8am-5pm EST - and it was really working like a charm: After only 12 min. I got approved with $ 7,500 credit limit.
So, check your application status and - if you are denied - don't hesitate to give it a chance at the backdoor number.

Is it just me, or does the new rewards redemption not offer partial redemptions anymore?

I have 2,506 points, and can't redeem it on anything, not even a $75 charge. Before, it would let me do a partial redemption for $25.

I've only been able to do complete redemption on the Priceline card. NFL card allowed partial redemptions on purchases.

Thank You. Every other 2% link to this card resulted in a 1% offer. The terms + conditions state 2 points/dollar. I just applied, and was surprised I did not get an instant decision, despite excellent credit and a sizable Barclay's savings and CD account.

CHECK APPLICATION STATUS


Currently we are unable to offer you a credit card issued by Barclays Bank Delaware. Details on why we could not make you a credit offer will be mailed to you.

I guess I will call the reconsider line after Memorial Day and plead my case. What do I say?

Yeah, it looked like it was still available on Friday, so I applied but wasn't instantly approved. When I checked the status of my application, I got the same message as cashbackcardsonly. "Currently we are unable to offer you a credit card issued by Barclays Bank Delaware. Details on why we could not make you a credit offer will be mailed to you." The credit analyst I spoke to a little while ago said that my application was declined without a pull because the offer is no longer available. I can't find any other 2% links. Oh well.

I guess I won't bother calling then. How can any link lead you to 2% when the offer no longer exists? Crapital 1.5% will have to do unfortunately.

What's wrong with a brokerage card? It works wonderfully. The only problem is that a couple of places don't take AMEX, which is why I was trying to fill that gap with this Priceline card.

There is the Barclay Arrival. It has an $89 annual fee, but it's waived during the first year.

The Citi Thank You Premier and Prestige cards are effectively 2.67% Cash Back cards if you fly a lot:

- 1 Thank You Point (TYP) for every dollar you spend
- 1 Flight Point (FP) for every mile flown using tickets purchased with the card; 1 FP gets converted into a TYP for each TYP you earn by spending
- 33% bonus TYP redemption on airfare (1 TYP = $0.0133), and tickets can be purchased with a combination of TYPs and cash so you don't have to have enough TYPs to cover the whole ticket

Also the Premier card gives 1.2 TYPs for supermarkets, gas stations, drugstores, commuter transportation and parking merchants, for an effective 3.2% max for those categories (1.2 TYPs + 1.2 FPs + 33% bonus), and the Prestige card gives 2 TYPs for dining, for an effective 5.33% max.

May not be gone (yet) for existing users, but it appears the only working link to the 2% deal, will get you the following message:

"Currently we are unable to offer you a credit card issued by Barclays Bank Delaware. Details on why we could not make you a credit offer will be mailed to you."

I had the HSBC 2% card for years, which is going away in July, I don't want a Fidelity AMEX Card, and I'm not a frequent flyer. I guess I'm stuck with Cap One's 1 1/2% card for purchases over $30.
