This brief guide, we will discuss the sky credit card. The Sky credit card is no longer available but this gives you an overview of what it was.
What was the sky credit card?
The sky credit card were credit cards issued under the sky branding but provided by Barclay card, the credit card arm of the Barclays bank.
The Sky credit card no longer exists as SKY ended their relationship with Barclaycard a long time ago.
When the sky credit card was initially launched it was very much hyped up as a credit card that will enable sky subscribers to purchase goods and pay per view services through their sky interactive TV. The Sky credit card did not live up to this.
Jon Florsheim, BSkyB’s managing director, sales, marketing and interactive, said: “SkyCard will build on the value delivered to customers, enabling them to save money through the loyalty scheme and to get more out of their Sky digital subscription.”
Customers should have been able to insert the Sky credit Card in their Sky box to manage their account and, soon after the launch, make purchases through the television using their remote control.
If you are concerned if your Sky credit card may have been mis-sold or you may have been mis-sold PPI along with your Sky credit card then you can contact Barclaycard who may be able to assist you further.
