Lithy category: Lithium Platform Innovator
Barclaycard US is the 9th largest credit card issuer in the US. We believe that social media provides the opportunity to change the dialogue between banks and customers and we are committed to building deep loyalty with our customers.
Lithium’s community platform is the driving force behind out latest innovation, Barclaycard Travel, where a portion of Barclaycard customers are invited to join a community, share their travel experience and earn more miles for their next trip. We are living the values of changing the dialogue and earning customer loyalty.
BarclaycardTravel.com is a one of a kind travel community where Barclaycard cardmembers and non-cardmembers can share travel experiences and earn miles that can be redeemed for travel rewards or e-certificates. Here are 6 ways that highlight how BarclaycardTravel.com has innovated on the Lithium platform:
