Thank you all, for your input. I have (somehow) managed to get value out of the Amex 2-4-1s (often First) and the 3x on BA tickets has been valuable which the Barclaycard does not have AFAIK so i think better to hold vs the Barclaycard plus, although this is cheaper by £5/month if i have a Barclays avios account as well. i suppose the question is do i switch my 0.5% cashback card to the the basic barclaycard. Am i right in thinking that if you take the avios/nectar rate of 0.8p, it’s basically the equivalent of having a 0.8% cashback card? (and 1.2% on the Barclaycard plus given the 1.5x spend, but not including the fee). On this basis, seems logical to switch, presumably. Finally, i have a Curve card which i use for all non-amex and foreign spending with my Barclaycard cashback behind it. Presumably this will work fine with either the standard or plus Barclaycard Avios, thereby earning avios on foreign spend?

Customer service points well taken. 😉

Thank you!

ah, i have just found the thread on curve + barclaycard avios… i hope they solve that…
