Barclaycard - Application Screw-up
Barclaycard Arrival Card
WILMINGTON, DELAWARE -- The first week of September, I applied for an ArrivalCard through Barclays Bank and told the person on the phone that I was leaving for England on the 17th of Sep. He told me the application would be reviewed and I would be notified when approved. I was Emailed my approval on Sep 5th. On the 10th of Sep. I called Barclaycard and was told they mailed my cards on the 9th. Today is the 14th so I called Barclaycard again and was told they would mail my card express and I would receive it on the 17th, maybe receiving it before my flight leaves.
Each person I spoke with were made aware that I needed the card before the 17th but not one of them made any effort to make sure I got the card. d I feel that I have been lied to and the people I dealt with at the Delaware phone number (all of them) are either incapable of doing their jobs or just don't care.
I wanted the Arrivalcard so I wouldn't need to pay all the extra fees you get stuck with when using American credit cards overseas.
Since I probably won't have my the Arrivalcard when I need it I won't be activating it and will most likely will be cancelling my other Barclaycards.
CapitalOne is looking very good to me right now.
