Barclays introduced the first credit card to the U.K. in 1966. The company's U.S. branch, Barclaycard, has been offering credit cards in the U.S. since 2004 when it began partnering with companies to offer "co-branded" credit cards.
The majority of Barclaycard's credit cards are rewards cards. There are a variety of different cards to choose from, so customers can pick which rewards they would like to take advantage of. Benefits include cash, bonuses, points, consumer items, and travel rewards.
Barclaycard does not charge any annual fees, which can save cardholders hundreds of dollars each year.
Keeping its cardholders' accounts secure is Barclaycard's top priority. Because of this, the company has put security measures in place. For example, Barclaycard requires verification and a special passcode to log in. Additionally, the company does not hold cardholders liable for reported unauthorized charges.
Barclaycard does not charge annual fees and offers several rewards programs and fraud safeguards. However, the company has not disclosed several pieces of important information, including APRs, and charges late payment fees.
