AARP Chase VISA card has informed me that Barclays Bank Mastercard will be taking over all their accounts.
Some years back, I had this occur with a Bank of America VISA account I had. My overall experience with Barclays Bank credit cards was poor. Having had numerous credit cards over many years - this experience with Barclays was the sole bad one. Perhaps they have changed?? I will not be finding out as I just canceled my AARP Chase card. On the plus side - the very helpful customer service rep at Chase advised me that I had some unclaimed "points". We then arranged to use these "points" for a couple of gift cards! $35 worth. 😃
Hi wilful, I too received the 'improved' Barclays CC information from AARP. I will not change from Chase to Barclays just so AARP can make $10 per head of members they are able to tranfer. I have chosen to 'opt out' of the conversion per the instructions on the first page of the letter. Now AARP not only loses the $10 but their 'kickback' on the $700 per month I I charge on the Chase AARP card. Dumb move AARP, don't assume because we are over 60 we are stupid because we are not.
