Barclays Reward Credit Card

Does this card still exist? I went to Barclays website, but I couldn't find it.

Re: Barclays Reward

Weird it definitely doesn't appear on their site anywhere in fact I did some digging..if you go out to any other credit card aggregate sites, like NerdWallet, it says this offer is not available at this time

Re: Barclays Reward Credit Card

I think it was replaced by the Reward Forward card or whatever you call that one that takes 5% of each cash out and ads it to your next one.

Wow, I hadn't noticed. I guess they must have phased it out.

 

I had the card for several years, just closed it and moved the credit limit to other Barclay cards a week ago.

 

I found it very useful over the years, especially for groceries and utilities.

Re: Barclays Reward Credit Card

5% categories on Sallie? That was bad for people who didn't have one yet (or wanted another).

 

But 2% categories on Rewards? I'm not sure how anyone could really see that as a loss. There are plenty of other re/builder cards.

Re: Barclays Reward Credit Card

The no annual fee Arrival isn't available any longer either, and hasn't been for a while now.  From what I remember, many of their cards weren't available to apply for on their main site earlier this year, including the Arrival Plus.  Then the Arrival Plus made a huge comeback when it returned with a better signup bonus than before.  It will be interesting to see if the Rewards or regular Arrival return at some point or if they have actually been phased out.

Re: Barclays Reward Credit Card

I got the Rewards card mid November. Had to recon to get a $1,500 SL. Good timing I suppose. However, I noticed early on this month that they had no longer had the card up. With all the adverse actions Barclays is causing to a lot if its customer base, it's not really surprising that they got rid of or made their easiest card to qualify for unavailable for the time being. As someone mentioned earlier, there are other rebuilder credit cards available. To each their own. Smiley Wink

Re: Barclays Reward Credit Card

It seems the new Commence (what Sallie Rewards will devolve into) is very similar to Barclaycard Rewards.
