Barclaycard was the first UK credit card company to go online, and we pioneered the revolution in contactless cards and mobile phone payments. With each new step, we've made it easier and more convenient for you to manage your spending.
Few things are as personal as money, so we offer products to meet every need. Our Platinum card gives you the UK’s longest-ever 0% balance transfer, while our Transfer to Bank option lets you borrow against your credit limit and send the cash straight to your current account.
Our cards also give you benefits that suit the way you spend, whether you want to earn points, collect air miles, or get cash back on your top monthly purchases. Our Freedom Rewards programme gives you the broadest range of places to spend your points, including top high street brands, major online retailers, great days out, and even charities.
Better access to credit
If you’re new to credit or want to improve your rating, Barclaycard has products to help. Our Initial card gives you access to credit, tools to track your spending, and a manageable limit that helps you build your rating over time. And because we know that a refused application can harm your credit rating, we created an online pre-application credit checker. It won’t leave a hard footprint on your credit file because it won’t accept or refuse you – it simply indicates whether you’re likely to be accepted for credit, so you can apply with greater confidence.
When it comes to your money, it’s important to know exactly what’s going on. That’s why we’re re-designing our monthly statements to make it even easier to see what you’re spending and where, and it’s why we’ll always write to you in clear, straightforward language.
As a Barclaycard customer, you get automatic access to Barclaycard's Entertainment Offering, where you can buy advance tickets to gigs, enter competitions and win great prizes. And with the My Barclaycard Mobile App, it’s easy to check your balance and remaining credit, so you can stay in control of your repayments whenever and wherever you are.
