Barclay Credit Card Cash Back for Restaurants



One of the reasons I got an AARP credit card is that it gives 3% cash back for restaurants.  The packet I received today regarding the switch from Chase to Barclays indicates that restaurants are no longer in the 3% cash back category.  I am very disappointed.  Is there anything AARP can do to get Barclay to add restaurants to the 3% cash back category?





Absolutely agree! I enjoy dining out and the 3% cash back for restaurants was a major plus. I'll have to consider dropping the card.


Yup.Drop Bartly’s!!

Totally agree. Chase has a freedom card that 3% on restaurants. Also, we now have to change all our on line accounts that use the old Aarp card.
