Review of the Barclaycard CashForward Credit Card (2017)

Need a simple cashback card? Want to get a premier barclaycard card in the future?

The CashForward might be for you.

What are the benefits?:

  1. 1.5% cashback + a 5% cash rewards redemption bonus to use toward your next redemption. (Effectively a little closer to 1.6% cashback)
  2. Free online FICO® Credit Score
  3. Basic World Mastercard Benefits (Such as price protection and extended warrenty)

Introductory offer: Spend $1000 (within the first 90 days of the account opening) and get $200 back in rewards! + 0% introductory APR on purchases/balance transfers is applicable for the first 15 billing cycles after account opening (balance transfers must be made within 45 days of account opening).

Personal Thoughts: Barclaycard is one of those card issuers that like you to start off with their lower end cards before applying for their premier cards such as the Arrival+. So, if you would like one of Barclaycard’s premier credit cards in the future, get this one. Their introductory offer is solid and their cashback rate would make this a good student credit card. But, that being said you should probably get an introductory credit card first, such as the Discover It for Students because they want your credit score to be at least 700. (Also, like the Citi Simplicity, Barclaycard allows you to balance transfer loans)
