"==ABOUT THE CARD== The Barclaycard Platinum is a credit card from Barclays Bank and I decided to sign up for one of these because of the promise of cashback on purchases. There are several Barclaycards available, each with different features but I tend to go for cashback cards as I don't want one that doesn't give me anything. Ones that gives me 0% on purchase or balance transfers for a limited time aren't any good to me either. It has the usual ..." Read review

DARLING, I WOULDN'T BE SEEN WITH ANYTHING ELSE

AdvantagesLots of free benefits, good customer service

DisadvantagesAPR not competitive enough

"...credit card was a standard Barclaycard Visa back when I first turned eighteen. It was a rather obvious choice for me, as I had always banked with Barclays and was therefore automatically eligible for the credit card. A couple of years later, I was invited to upgrade to the gold version, and not long after that I learnt of the platinum version, and was invited to upgrade once more. Since then, this has been the main credit card that I have used. I ..." Read review

AdvantagesGreat for collecting Nectar points, added security features

Goodbye Barclaycard

Advantages Good customer service, regular 0% offers, good online service

DisadvantagesAPR not competitive enough, moving to India

Quick result, great for balance transfers

AdvantagesQuick turn around

DisadvantagesIndian call centres, different information from different people

"I took a Barclaycard that could offer me 14 months interest free on balance transfers. The turn around from application to getting the card was quick only taking a couple of weeks. The application form itself is fine, I did it on the internet. They ask the usual earning questions and personal info required but its not too long and they are questions you know, I had an account with them already which made things easier. Again the balance transfer ..." Read review
