..so their Cashback card is changing from a dual card account to a single card account.

Therefore the best cashback rate for affected accounts dropped from 1% to 0.5%. Just managed to get £20 per account from Barclaycard in compensation/goodwill as a result -- late to the party but better than nothing!

per account? how many did you have? and yes, £20s are always worth having.
fwiw i have the Barclaycard Visa in my wallet as an Amex back up, and quite happy with it.

I have two of these... one former Egg Money and the other can't even remember anymore what it used to be!

ok got you. i know Barclaycard had gone back into a "maximum 1 account" phase again a few months ago. £20s are worth having. fwiw i'm not sure i'd keep both - you could ask them to merge the limits onto one account, perhaps the longest-standing account.
