American Express JetBlue Cardholders Will Be Transferred To Barclaycard On March 21st
If you’re a holder of an American Express JetBlue card, you will have your card automatically product changed into the new JetBlue Barclaycard on March 21st according to American Express customer service representatives. We’ve known that Barclaycard would be the new issuer of these cards for awhile now and American Express stopped accepting applications for this card back in October of last year.
We don’t know a lot about the new card, except that it will run on the Mastercard payment network and that it will be launched sometime in Q1 of 2016. I think it’s safe to assume that the card will be available to new applicants on or before March 21st when existing cardholders are transitioned.
American Express will also be letting existing cardholders product change to a different product before this March 21st deadline, but don’t look to be aggressively targeting cardholders with transition offers (like they are with Costco), presumably because the deal in which Barclaycard buys the backbook is profitable.
