Barclays Makes Changes to Credit Cards Benefits
Barclays has sent out notices to cardholders announcing some changes to credit card benefits. There’s good and bad news, as some benefits are removed and some added. Let’s look at the changes.
Your Extended Warranty, Price Protection, Purchase Assurance, Satisfaction Guarantee and Trip Delay benefits will be removed; however, claims can be submitted for eligible purchases made through October 31, 2019.
Your Auto Rental Collision Damage Waiver and Identity Theft benefits will be enhanced. For example, you will now have access to an online monitoring dashboard and resolution features that scour the internet and Dark Web for compromised credentials and financial account takeover.
Also, you will be eligible to receive Cellular Telephone Protection, which provides coverage for certain damage to or theft of your cell phone effective November 1, 2019.
Shawn and I received this email for the Barclays Arrival card. But all Barclays cards that have these benefits should be affected. There’s more benefits being taken away than being added overall.
