Info for Barclaycard users.
« on: May 05, 2006, 15:00 »
Not an internet bargain but it is a method to save you a lot of money.

I know someone who moved over to Mint two weeks ago as the interest rate is much lower than their Barclaycard. i.e. Barclaycard 18.9% vs Mint 14% (0% until Jan 07). So he phoned up Barclaycard to cancel the card and they tell me that as he has been with them for 10 years+ they don't want to loose him, so they will give him a new rate.....they gave him 9.9% 

Of course he asked them why didn't they do this ages ago and the reply was "because you didn't complain". So the moral of this story is, call Barclaycard up and complain about the high interest and threaten to move elsewhere and see if they will also give you 9.9%!

But that's still not as low as the cheapest Barclaycard Simplicity option, which is only 6.9% APR before 31st May 2006, provided you have a good credit history, with the same rate for life of balance transfers of up to ?5,000.
