Barclays Product Change

I have the US Airways CC but the Barclays Rewards CC would fit my needs better.

Is it possible to do a product change with Barclays? If so, what is the best method. Thanks.

Re: Barclays Product Change

I product changed my US Airways to Arrival -  You just call them and ask them for a product change.

Re: Barclays Product Change

Thank you.  I just tried and they converted me to the Rewards CC.  Because I have a low $500 CL, I tried for a CLI.  I knew it was a long shot and it was a HP, but I went for it anyway.  Denial.

I am happy with the product change though.

Was it instant change ? Does your online profile shows new product already ? Do you get to keep same account number ?

Well, I just called and PC-ed US Airways to Rewards MC. It's not instant, it will take some time and the rep said the account number will change.

Yes, it was instant -  The Arrival card showed up in my online account before I got the card, maybe just a day or two later.   I cannot remember if they changed the account number - (it was a few months ago) but they did not change the opening date; the Arrival Premier has my US Airways opening date on my credit reports.

Re: Barclays Product Change

My online account still shows the US Airways CC, but it has a pop up screen asking me to activate my new CC.  I have not received it in the mail, but I am sure the online information will reflect my new CC when I activate it.

 

Happy New Year to everyone.

For those of you who got the PC, how much spend/usage did your US Air card get? I have two of them and attempted to call and request a PC; was told that only certain accounts are eligible for a product change. Could not get any more information than that. 

FICO: EX: 752 (4/15); TU: 754 (3/15); EQ 732 (3/15)

In My Wallet: Amazon X 1 | Amex X 5 | Barclays X 2 | BOA X 1 | CapOne X 3 | Chase X 5 | Citi X 6 | DCU X 1 | DinersClub X 1 | Discover X 1 | Fidelity X 1 | Fifth Third X 2 | Macys X 1 | PenFed X 2 | PSECU X 1 | Sams Club MC X 1 | Target RedCard X 1 | USAA X 2 | US Bank X 1 | Walmart X 1 | Wells Fargo X 1

Holding off apps until the end of the year! Wish me luck!

Re: Barclays Product Change

My usage was very lite.  Of course, I only have a $500 CL, and they have not bumped it in 5 years.
