Credit card ‘off switch’ to stop binge spending: Shoppers could block online sprees or set a daily limit
14 November 2016
Bosses at the UK’s biggest credit card firm may set up an ‘off switch’ to help compulsive spenders protect themselves against shopping sprees.
Barclaycard customers worried about binge spending would be encouraged to sign up.
The off switch might stop people using their card online or at certain times, say between 9pm and 9am.
