Quick Thoughts

We previously wrote about this card (See: New Uber Visa looks great for a no-fee card), and concluded that this looks like a decent offer for someone looking for a simple one-card solution that earns bonuses on travel and dining out. The ancillary benefits (like mobile phone insurance and the subscription benefit) aren’t groundbreaking, but are pretty good for a card without an annual fee. See our Best Offers page for a link to apply.

Can I convert my other Barclay card to this one?

Just tried to convert a regular Arrival (not plus), CSR said I was her first Uber call, so she wasn’t sure. Put me on hold, talked to her manager, came back and said at this time it requires a new application. Please post if anybody gets a successful product change. Maybe from a different card.

Just applied and got approved for $2,800. I am LOL/24. So that’s good news

Nick – I read the T&C last night on this card and it states, in short, that Barclays can suspend your account or your points if they think you’re “gaming.” This is the first time I’ve seen this language on a Barclaycard. Not sure how one could MS effectively with this card, but an interesting DP nonetheless.
