I had started a thread a while ago when Barclay announced "improvements" to their Princess credit card rewards -- and now I am sorry to have to report that this card does NOT live up to its promises. Rewards can only be redeemed in 5,000 point increments. After my recent Princess cruise I had 7,200 points -- I called Barclay customer service and was told that if I made more purchases to get to 7,500 I would get a $75 statement credit against the Princess cruise. Now that I have done that they say "No, you can't redeem 7,500 points only 5,000 or 10,000." So I took the $50, leaving $25 on the table, which means that I didn't get even the base 1% -- I got 0.67 percent. THIS IS THE WORST CARD IN MY WALLET -- only it's not in my wallet, it's in the garbage!
