++Your Telephone Numbers:  By providing us with a telephone number(s), at the time you apply or anytime thereafter, you authorize us and our affiliates and agents, to contact you at that number about your account or other products or services, and to use an automated dialing service, pre-recorded message or text message. Standard text messaging and/or calling charges may apply.

About This Offer: You must be at least 18 years of age. This offer is available only to applicants who are residents of the United States, with the exception of Puerto Rico and the US territories,  and may not be available if you already have or have had an account with us. If at the time of your application you do not meet the credit or income criteria previously established for this offer, or the income you report is insufficient based on your current obligations, we may be unable to open an account for you. Please review the materials provided with your card for details.    

About Your Credit Report: You agree that we have a right to obtain a credit report in connection with our review of your application, and if we establish an account for you, to administer your account.  You agree that we may report to others our credit experience with you. If you ask, we will tell the names and addresses of any credit bureaus from which we obtained a report about you.

For the non-promotional purchase and balance transfer APR, we add 11.74% to the Prime Rate. For the cash advance APR, we add 21.99% to the Prime Rate. See your Cardmember Agreement for more detail.

Important Information About Procedures for Opening a New Account: To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, Federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person who opens an account. What this means to you: When you apply for an account, we will ask for your name, street address, date of birth, social security number, and other information that will allow us to identify you. We may also ask to see copies of identifying documents. We also ask for country of citizenship.

Balance Transfers. Here's How it Works: To request a balance transfer please enter the 15/16 digit account number from the Mastercard, Visa, American Express, or Discover Card account that you want us to process a balance transfer from. If the total amount you request exceeds the assigned credit line on your new account, we may either decline the request or send a partial payment to your creditor(s). The amount of available credit on your new account will be reduced by the amount transferred and the related balance transfer fees. We reserve the right to decline to process any requested balance transfer. We will not process a request to transfer a balance from any other account you may have with us. Balance transfers incur interest from the transaction date. You should not transfer the amount of any disputed purchase or other charge. If you do, you may lose your dispute rights.

Upon approval of your application we will process the requested balance transfer payment to the account(s) which you have requested on the 10th day after we've mailed you your card; during this 10 day time period you may cancel your balance transfer by contacting us at the number on the back of your card. A balance transfer may take up to 4 weeks to post to your other accounts. Continue to pay each creditor until the balance transfer appears on the other account as a credit. If you would like to complete a balance transfer from another account that is not a Visa, Mastercard, American Express or Discover Card account, please call the phone number on the back of your new credit card once you are approved. Balance transfers are subject to availability. We may deny balance transfer requests at any time and for any reason.

Avoiding Interest on Purchases: We will not charge you interest on any purchases if you pay your entire balance by the due date each month. In addition, during this introductory period we will not charge you interest on purchases if you pay by the due date each month your outstanding statement balance minus any new 0% introductory APR Balance Transfer balances. To avoid a late fee, you should pay at least the minimum payment due on your account each month.

Credit Limit: We do not permit applicants to request a specific credit limit. We do not consider a request for a balance transfer made with an application to be a request for a particular credit limit. We determine the credit limit on your account independent of and prior to processing any balance transfer request.

Cash Equivalent Purchases: The purchase of money orders, travelers' checks, foreign currency, lottery tickets, gambling chips, wire transfers and other similar transactions are treated as cash advances. Please see your Cardmember Agreement for details.

New York Residents: New York residents may contact the New York State Department of Financial Services by telephone (800) 342-3736, or visit the website, www.dfs.ny.gov, for free information on comparative credit card rates, fees and grace periods. 

Notice to Ohio Residents: The Ohio laws against discrimination require that all creditors make credit equally available to all creditworthy customers, and that credit reporting agencies maintain separate credit histories on each individual upon request.  The Ohio Civil Rights Commission administers compliance with this law.

Notice to Married Wisconsin Residents: No marital property agreement, unilateral statement or court decree under Wisconsin's marital property law will adversely affect our interests unless before your account is opened, you give us a copy of the agreement, statement or decree or we have actual knowledge of it.  You understand that we may be required to give notice of this account to your spouse.

Information Sharing:
Barclays' Privacy Policy is available online at www.BarclaycardUS.com. I agree that Barclays Bank Delaware, Luxury Card, and the Rewards Program administrator, Enhancement Services Corporation ("TSYS") may share information about me and my account to the extent needed to administer the  Rewards Program.



This document contains the official Rewards Program Rules (“Program Rules”) for the Mastercard Gold Card Rewards Program (the “Program”) associated with the Mastercard Gold Card account (“Account” or “Card”) issued by Barclays Bank Delaware (“Barclaycard,” “we,” “us” or “our”) and includes important conditions and limitations. “You,” “your” or “Primary Cardmember” means the person who applied for the Account. Use of your Account constitutes your acceptance of each of the terms described herein. Capitalized terms not defined in these Program Rules have the meaning ascribed to them in the Cardmember Agreement. Please read these Program Rules and keep this document in a safe place.

Program Administration

Gift cards/certificates, merchandise and travel redemptions are administered by Loyalty Edge, Inc. (“Loyalty Edge”), an independent company not affiliated with Barclaycard or Luxury Card.

Luxury Card is not a party to the Cardmember Agreement between you and us, does not participate in any extension of credit, and has no authority regarding the Account. Barclaycard is the sole creditor and owner of the Account. Barclaycard’s Privacy Policy is available online at myluxurycard.com. Barclaycard, Loyalty Edge and Luxury Card will share information to the extent needed to administer the Program.

To qualify for participation in the Program and to maintain your good standing:
• You must maintain an open Account that is not in default under your Cardmember Agreement with us.
• Your Account cannot have been inactive for 7 billing cycles in a row (representing approximately 7 months). “Inactive” means you have no balance, no payments, and no transactions.
• You must be an individual (corporations, partnerships, and other entities may not participate) and use the Account only for personal, family or household expenses.
• You must not engage in any illegal activity through the use of your Account or engage in activity that is deemed to be abusive or gaming conduct, as determined by us in our sole discretion.

If you do not qualify for participation in the Program, your enrollment in the Program may be canceled and any unredeemed points may be forfeited.

Earning Points

You earn Points on retail purchases less credits, returns and adjustments (“Net Purchases”) made with the Account by you and/or any authorized user(s), as follows:

• You will earn 1 Point for every $1 in Net Purchases using your Card.
• When a purchase or transaction is not a whole dollar amount, any fraction equal to or greater than $.50 will be rounded up to the nearest whole dollar and any fraction equal to or less than $.49 will be rounded down to the nearest whole dollar to calculate points earned. For example, if you make a purchase in the amount of $49.49, 49 points will be awarded, but if the transaction amount is $49.50, 50 points will be awarded.
• Balance Transfers, Cash Advances (including Cash Equivalent transactions such as, but not limited to, the use of your Card or Account number to obtain money orders, traveler’s checks, foreign currency and lottery tickets), fees, interest charges, and unauthorized/fraudulent transactions do not earn points.
• There is no limit to the total points you can earn as long as the Program continues and your Account is open, active and in good standing.
• Barclaycard reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to disqualify any Cardmember from participating in the Program and to forfeit any or all points earned for abuse, fraud, or any violation of the Program Rules.
