Re: Barclays Uber Visa Refresh

Very dissapointed by this change. Can't see myself using the card anymore after the change.

Sigh, this is very unfair to you. I remember when you were approved for this card. It seems like they should warn applicants if these changes are gonna take place near the time of application. It feels dishonest to me.

 

On another note, I had a Barclay's Reward card that they sold to another lender without warning. It happened to a lot of us, so I closed that card and transferred it's limit to the Uber, now this. I guess it's permanent SD for me!


it's really depressing! i called them to complain and said it's already all over the internet and people are upset, they're not gonna use the card anymore and they should reconsider changing it. so i asked how many other people are complaining about it... only 1 other person had called. yep. SD here we come. Smiley Sad

Yeah, I just got the email on this. The card will be nerfed on February 2020.   Looks like Uber VS will be going to the SD.  I'll keep it open and hope for one of Barclay's good BT offers. 

 

Maybe I'd better take my Marvel MC out of mothballs for 3% statement credits.  I could even use Sam's Club MC for 3% CB.

If it is losing money for them, and/or their partner is complaining that it isn't benefitting them as intended, all the complaints in the world won't change their mind.  Possibly they will get new Uber users who don't know, or don't want to use, alternatives!   Good/great cards get nerfed......

Re: Barclays Uber Visa Refresh

Feb 2020 for me. They started messing with the card a couple months ago when they removed 2% on paypal purchases which caught me by surprise since there was no communication. Going to apply and switch over to WF Propel as it is very comparable with % back on categories with a $300 signup bonus, no AF, no FTF.

When did you first open the card? It seems as if changes are different depending on the person.

 

My changes begin in May however I opened the card in late August.


Barclay's Timeline:

Barclay’s Rewards - Opened 10/2016 —> Closed 8/15/2018 due to account being sold to another lender (Mercury).

Still received the Mercury card although they said I wouldn't. Mercury card also closed —>8/15/2018.

Opened Uber Visa -> 8/15/2018.

 

Related, just called Barclays to see if I had any options to product change, explaining that I have no use for Uber Cash. He said yes and started reading me the Uber Card rewards structure verbatim. Said he could upgrade me to the new card asap as a product change!! Smiley Mad

When Uber was released they said they were going to add transfer partners, etc, and instead they nerfed it and changed it to forced Uber rewards only, which is the opposite of the original hype they created.

I never believed for a second that they would add transfer partners to a card that earned 4x on restaurants with no annual fee.

I'm so happy I used two hard pulls to get this card and then two hard pulls to get my credit limit up on a card I won't be using.   :-/
