Your Downgrade Options For Barclays Credit Cards [2021]

- Jul 4, 2021 Credit Card Info1 comment

We are in the midst of posting a series on downgrade options for each bank’s credit cards. This time it’s Barclays turn (see our other posts covering Chase, Amex, and Citi).

In this post we will discuss the downgrade options for Barclays credit cards.

Downgrade rules for Barclays credit cards

  • Same family: You can only product change a card within the same card family or brand. 
  • Personal to business: You can only downgrade personal cards to personal cards and business cards to business cards (Barclays business cards do not have downgrade options).
  • Not always available: Downgrades are NOT guaranteed. They are only available upon eligibility – it’s recommended to ask for a supervisor as they may be able to do downgrades in some cases even if the front rep is not able to.
  • Annual fee refund: If you downgrade or close a Barclays card within 60 days of when your annual fee was charged then Barclays will refund you the full annual fee amount.
Don't use your credit card for less then $2 a month!
