Barclays's Rewards?

Can anybody give any insight as to what might fall under the category of utilities for Barclay's. Obviously electricity would count but what about cable/internet. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

I charge my cable bill, gas, water and sewer and receive double points on all charges, so I'm assuming they consider them Utilities.

Re: Barclays's Rewards?

My experience when I had the card was that anything you would call a utility, so did Barclays, so that was good.  I had wireless, wireline, internet and cable all on my telephone bills, so not a detailed test, but from others here it seems to work for all those individually.  My gas, electricity and water bills charged a surcharge (greater than 2%) for credit card usage so afte testing one of the once, I stopped charging them to the card!

Re: Barclays's Rewards?

Does anyone know if car insurance counts towards Utilities for 2x points? I wouldn't think that it does, but I thought it was worth checking for some extra rewards. 

 

Thanks in advance!
