Your handy list of Barclays Premier credit card FAQs

What is the minimum amount I must pay on my account each month?
You may pay your card balance off in full or make a part payment. If you have an outstanding balance, each month you must pay the minimum payment due by the payment due date. The minimum payment due is calculated as 4% or AED100 whichever is higher of your outstanding balance plus any amount past due, plus any instalment due on a Balance Transfer, Cash on Call or Easy Instalment Plan, plus any amount by which the balance on your statement exceeds your credit limit.

What should I do if I see a transaction I don’t recognise on my statement?
Please call us straight away on 800 428 6080 so we can find out what the problem is.

What should I do if my personal details or address have changed?
Please call us on 800 428 6080 and let us know so we can keep all your details up to date. In some instances (where you change employer or change your name) you will need to supply supporting documentation in order for us to make changes to your account.

How can I manage my credit limit?
At Barclays, we want to put you in charge of your credit card. So, if you want to speak to us about lowering or raising your credit limit, please call our Premier Telephone Banking advisors on 800 428 6080.

What should I do if I forget my Personal Identification Number (PIN)?
Please call our Premier Telephone Banking advisors on 800 428 6080 and they will be able to send you a new PIN.

What happens if my payment is received late?
If your minimum payment due is not received by the payment due date (each as indicated in your statement) a late payment fee will be charged to you. This is in addition to interest that will be charged on the outstanding amount. Please refer to the Schedule of tariff for more details on the rates applicable on your Barclays Premier credit card.

Is interest charged immediately when I withdraw cash?
When you withdraw cash from the bank or an ATM, you will be charged a Cash Advance Fee. This is in addition to the interest charged on the amount withdrawn from the date of withdrawal.

What additional charges do I incur if I use my card internationally?
When you use your card outside the UAE, the currency of your transaction will be converted into UAE Dirhams (AED). This will be at the exchange rate prevailing on the date of the amount is charged on your account rather than the date you used your card. The two rates may vary due to market fluctuations. For all foreign currency transactions, a processing fee will be levied. All credit cards, when used outside the UAE are charged an international conversion fee. Please refer to the Schedule of tariff for more details on the rates applicable on your Barclays Premier credit card.


In case you have more than one credit card from Barclays, here are some of the questions you may have:

Do I have to activate my two credit cards separately?
Yes, both your credit cards will have to be activated. You can keep both of your credit cards handy and request our Premier Telephone Banking advisor to assist you with activating both cards.

Will I have two different PIN numbers for the two credit cards that I hold?
Yes, each credit card account is unique and will have a different PIN number.

Will I get two statements?
Yes, you will receive two different statements for each of your credit card accounts.

If I have a payment due on each card, can I send a common cheque or make a common cash payment to one of the credit card accounts?
We apologise but since each credit card account is unique, you will not be able to send a common cheque or common cash payment to one credit card account. You will need to make separate payments into each credit card account.

If I lose one credit card and I report the same, will both my cards be blocked?
No, only the credit card that you have reported as lost will be blocked.

Will the minimum amount due on both my credit cards be different?
Yes, the minimum due amount will vary based on the amount you have spent on each of your credit cards. 4% or AED100 of the outstanding balance is your minimum amount due on each credit card.

What will the limit assigned to each credit card?
The limit assigned to you as a customer. You have a common limit across both cards, i.e. If the limit assigned to you is AED100,000 and you have spent AED20,000, you can use any of your credit cards for the balance of AED80,000.

Are various promotional offers valid on all my credit cards?
Any communication on promotional offers will clearly mention which credit card account the offer is valid for. The offer at times may apply on all cards but also could be one credit card product specific.

Can the credit card Rewards Points on my Barclays credit cards be combined for rewards redemption?
The credit card Rewards Points earned from various card plastic can be clubbed and redeemed at various rewards partner outlets.
