The Carnival MasterCard from Barclaycard is a credit card that makes owning a credit card easy and convenient. The ease comes in the way of this card not having an annual fee although it is a cash back rewards card. There are also very few fees in that there are only balance transfer and cash advance fees in addition to the late payment and returned payment fees.
The convenience comes in the way of the introductory APR allowing cardholders to earn their points without having to pay a significant amount of interest during the introductory period. There is also an introductory rate and period on balance transfers so that balances can be transferred from higher interest cards to the lower interest card.
As for the points, they are earned on everyday purchases, but double points are earned on Carnival purchases. These points can then be redeemed toward Carnival cruises. There are even bonus points given when the card is used for the first time and on balance transfers. There is a minimum amount for the balance transfer, but the bonus can be worth up to $50 worth of points that can be redeemed toward a cruise.
Lastly, account management is very easy in that you have access to customer service via the telephone and online. This enables cardholders to access their account information from anywhere in the world, whether over the telephone or Internet. Through telephone account management, you can obtain balance, credit limit, and points information. However, online account management enables you to see statements and activity in front of you so you always know what is happening within your account.
