Hi fellow cruisers!
Hi there, hope you are having a great week. Nice to be here.
I am blogging a warning today concerning Barclaycard - ie: Carnival funpoints Master Card. It is a disaster. We joined the card 2 months before the cruise we took on June 17th. This was our 3rd cruise on Carnival. Everything went okay, got home safe!
About the card: After going through 4 customer reps, i finally got a statement credit of $100.00. the other 3 reps told me i had to get the statement credit online. WHERE? there is no statement credit option ! I called the 4th rep and WAH LA...she gave me a statement credit of $100.00! Then to my surprise on the very next statement, that i was ONE day late and whalloped with over $60.00 in late fees and interest. Get this, I make sure and send my credit card bills including this bill 7 working days prior to the date due and paid in full every month just so they can't say it was late. Why have rewards if you don't do that, right? They said they couldn't be responsible for postal problems..lol. Yeah 7 working days early? Funny thing is NO one would reverse the charges as this would be my first "late charge" anyhow. Very questionable business here. In my opinion, It is a major rip off scheme. and their policy? Each time you call the policy is different from one customer service rep to the other. The "supervisors" work with you even less. Stay far away from this one. It is truely a trap. This economy doesn't afford this type of business. Just don't get lured in on the Carnival funpoints by barclaycard. Just a huge suggestion.
