I used the chat facility they asked me to call barclaycard… clearly they were confused as it’s not a barclaycard query … don’t hold much hope lol

Yes, that’s the sort of customer service you should get used to.

Honestly, I don’t see why you should switch your main current account (unless you are really annoyed with current bank). Just open up a free Monzo or Starling account and switch that one. For the sake of 25k avios it is a bit of hassle and in my opinion not worth going to Barclays for anything other than the avios.

I should also say that Monzo and Starling offer superb current accounts which laugh in the face of Barclays, Lloyds, HSBC and any of the other big high street banks.
