As someone pointed out on the Flyertalk thread, 7k Avios is less than the minimum saving you’d make on a redemption…

7,000 Avios is the anticipated alternative that has been trailed here and presumably represents roughly the cost to Barclays of the voucher rather than any theoretical redemption value.

No surprises there. But it is surprising that they’d have the gall to push such a rubbish offer. I suppose, given the “700 Avios for £1500 spend” type offers we’ve seen, Barclays have demonstrately quite clearly that they have no interest in rewarding customers’ loyalty once they have them onboard. A complete contrast with the ludicrously generous 150k SUB that ran last year.
