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.
