Overlimit Fees & Charges

Barclaycard over limit fees

Simple ways to avoid an over limit fee


Track your balance

Keep track of your credit limit and balance. You can do this anytime online through Barclaycard online servicing at an ATM or you can contact us.

Monitor your purchases

Review your statement to keep track of your purchases each month. Don’t forget to include any interest charges that may apply.

Minimum payment

If your minimum payment doesn’t take you below your credit limit, you’ll need to pay more to avoid another over limit fee (remember, you can choose to make additional payments at any time).

Talk to us

If you’re close to your credit limit, you could ask for an increase. Log on or register online through Barclaycard online servicing or  contact us and we’ll do what we can to help you.
