Barclaycard CashForward World MasterCard Review

Application Link

  • This card no longer accepts new applications. If you are lucky to have this legacy credit card, you can still enjoy its original benefits.

Benefits

  1. Earn $200 after spending $1,000 in first 90 days. This is the best offer for the card.
  2. Earn 1.5% cash back on all purchases.
  3. Every time you redeem, get a 5% cash rewards redemption bonus to use toward your next redemption. So equivalently you can earn 1.575% cashback on all purchases.
  4. No annual fee.

Disadvantages

  1. It has foreign transaction fee, so it's not a good choice outside the US.

Recommended Application Time

  1. Barclays value the number of recent hard pulls a lot, we recommend you apply when you have less than 6 hard pulls in the past 6 months.
  2. We recommend you apply for this card after you have a credit history of at least one year.

Summary

This card isn’t impressive. When the offer is $100, there’s no point in applying. When the offer is $200, it’s barely satisfactory as a no annual fee card, but remember that Barclaycard is not easy to get approved. Nowadays there are so many 1.5% cashback credit cards, but in terms of cashback on non-bonus categories, obviously the winner is Citi Double Cash (DC) which offers 2% cash back for everything and no annual fee. Despite all these, this card is still a good downgrade option for Barclaycard.

After Applying
