OK, we have now got to the bottom of this one.

As we already suspected, the Barclaycard website does not present this clearly. There is no option to open a Premier acccount with a salary of under £75k by paying £20 per month.

This is an option which is only available to existing Premier customers who lose their jobs or for other reasons no longer meet the £75k criteria. At their next account review date, they will be offered the chance to pay £20 per month as an alternative to having their Premier account closed.

But the first year is not means tested right?
