100,000 points monthly threshold – is there one?

  • Swiss Jim

    Prompted by the last post, and just marginally nervous. Not sure why, but I do vaguely recall an issue on another card (possibly HH Card, also by Barclaycard) where you earned over 100,000 points in a month. Points did post but rather strangely (e.g. if you earned 120,000 points, 20,000 posted as usual and 100,000 at a later date).

    Has anyone earned over 100,000 a month yet (I carefully limited mine to 99,900 last month), and is so any issues in their transferring across to your avios account?




    Can’t help you on your question but is this genuine spend or is their MS loophole that isn’t widely known yet? If genuine spend then can I be your friend? 😂

    I’d only ever talk about genuine spend on a forum such as this!

    150000+ posted fine this month on questionable spend…

    No idea but while we’re asking random questions, does anyone know why the Barclaycard “Monthly Membership Fee” has the business number “TRANSREF_DEFAULT_AMEX” in the transaction detail?


    Barclaycard used to run a Dual Amex/Visa cashback card. I used to have it and the yearly cashback would have this business number. I see it in other transactions randomly too. I assume it’s just leftover from that system.
