Barclays Product Change - Success!

Was making a payment online for Barclays (Apple card) and asked the CSR if they allow product changes, the answer was YES. They asked me a few questions about what I use my card mostly for (in my case, travel) and teh CSR switched it to the Virgin America product. The new card comes in 10 days. Pretty slick if you ask me.

Re: Barclays Product Change - Success!

Did they do any inquiries or otherwise ask questions that made it seem like it was a qualification type thing, rather than a simple change?

 

I too have an Apple card. Considering it's only reward/benefit is deferred financing on the first purchase, a change to something else could be nice.

 

I noticed in another thread you were solicited for a Virgin card. Wondering if that had anything to do with it...

The csr did ask me if I applied for the Virgin card and I confirmed I had. But that was all he asked. They seemed very happy to switch me.

Re: Barclays Product Change - Success!

Do you remember if you lost your 0% interest on the first qualifying purchase that you made? Did you receive a CLI?

Re: Barclays Product Change - Success!

What was your CL on the card, had you used it?

I did not lose my 0%, and my CL was $4000 and I had used it heavily. Balance was always PIF.

Re: Barclays Product Change - Success!

Which number did you call to ask for the product change?
