First, Chase announced that it was removing the price protection and returns protection benefits from most of the credit cards they offer. After Chase, Citi announced that it would be removing most of the protection benefits from almost all their cards. Now Barclays is starting to remove protection benefits as well.

Barclays removing protection benefits

Barclays is sending out warnings on select credit card statements to let cardholders know that it will be removing extended warranty and price protection benefits from 1 November 2019.
This is the statement they sent out:

Your extended warranty and price protection benefits are being removed, however, claims can be submitted for eligible purchases made through October 31, 2019.

So far these notices have been sent out to Arrival+ and Uber Visa cardholders, but most likely other cards will follow soon.

Citi removing protection benefits

In June 2019, Citi emailed cardholders to disclose the benefits which are being cut from each card. The changes are broad and affect many popular Citi rewards cards like the:

  • Prestige Card
  • Premier Card
  • Advantage Platinum Select World Elite Mastercard
  • Double Cash Card

From 09.22.2019, the following benefits are being removed from Citi cards:

  • Worldwide Car Rental Insurance
  • Trip Cancellation & Interruption Protection
  • Worldwide Travel Accident Insurance
  • Trip Delay Protection
  • Baggage Delay Protection
  • Lost Baggage Protection
  • Medical Evacuation
  • Citi Price Rewind
  • 90 Day Return Protection
  • Missed Event Ticket Protection
  • Roadside Assistance Dispatch Service
  • Travel & Emergency Assistance

Citi Double Cash and Citi Dividend Card users in addition to all these benefits being removed will also lose:

  • Extended Warranty
  • Purchase Protection

What do you think about all these benefit changes?
