Barclays removes select benefits starting Nov. 1

Select Barclays holders will soon lose their extended warranty and price protection benefits starting on Nov. 1, 2019.

The price protection benefit is currently only available on the Barclaycard Arrival Plus World Elite Mastercard and Uber cards, however the extended warranty benefit is currently available on a number of cards across the World Elite™ Mastercard® portfolio and likely others. Doctor of Credit reports that card holders in which this affects are seeing notices of the change on their recent statements, so be sure to take a closer look at your statement to see if one of your cards is affected.

This news comes a few months after Citi announced that it would be cutting a majority of its travel and purchase benefits on almost all of its cards starting Sept. 22, which is just around the corner.

If this is a benefit you value and use, consider looking at other cards still offer price protection and extended warranties. If you already have one of these cards, we recommend using them on big purchases where a price drop could save you big money and an extended warranty is an extra comfort.
