It seems they allow conversion to their own card, but not from their card to an affinity card. Chase is the same way I believe. I attempted to convert the Barclays Rewards Mastercard to the Sallie Mae and the lady told me she understood what I was asking, but they don't convert that card to another one.


I'm not sure I understand what an affinity card is??? 

 

But the card that I have looks just like the Rewards MC card on their website except it has the Visa logo on it.  It's the blue and white swirl looking card.

It's a co-branded card. Like the Priceline Visa they have, or the Sallie Mae card as I mentioned. Priceline or Sallie Mae don't issue or decision anything about the card, but their name is on it and they make profit from it.

 

I was unaware that the rewards card came in Visa. I wonder why they kept it like that.

Re: Barclay PC went through painlessly

Is it possible to PC from one affinity card to another affinity card?  Say, from the NFL to the Priceline?

Don't know about that, but as I posted in another thread, they wouldn't allow me to PC from the Rewards card.  I didn't even specify my target, co-brand or otherwise, so I don't know if it there is a policy that can be overridden by CSRs, or if there really is a set of rules "Card 1 to Card 2 OK, Barclays to Affinity, No, Rewards to anything, no"

My guess would be affinity to affinity should also be at least initially hard, if they have to refund anything to the first affinity partner.
