    Barclaycard Cashback removing the 1% Amex card 5th May 17 at 1:32 PM
    Got a letter today, Barclaycard are dropping the 1% cashback Amex card and the Visa card to be replaced with a single card offering 0.5% cashback.

    1% cashback ends on July 13.

    Is 0.5% still the best? Might have to switch over to Amex proper now.

    Completely missed their notification - so was caught by surprise when the AMEX started getting declined 2 weeks ago.
    Once realised the reason, sent them two messages to log a complaint, then got a phone call today to inform me 'there is nothing we can do'.
    However persisted to talk to the complaints manager, who said as an exception he will credit my account with £100, before sendling me a letter to confirm I have accepted the complaint resolution.
    Given that my cashback is usually around teh £50 mark, this gives me 2 years to think what to do next.

    which is good going. on the face of it, the thing to do next, is just keep using your Barclaycard Visa. i use it as a back up to an Amex Cashback card.
