    The topping up should be interesting, that might be the big positive, who knows.

    Where exactly do I find the customer services web chat in the Android app?

    I spent an hour on the phone today without reaching a human

    With a debit card.

    MCC 4829 is the new 6051, most credit card issuers won’t pay out rewards for 4829 transactions and may also charge fees.

    Found it. Just use the main chat function in the app. Avios.com chat agents deal with enquiries about the MasterCard. I was expecting a different chat site for the MasterCard

    I has 79 cents in the wallet for a couple of months without any transactions in Euro.

    It has just been auto converted to my GBP wallet

    Same issue as others – tried to use online for three separate transactions at different retailers; it says everytime to enter the authorisation code sent to email or mobile number but no codes are sent.

    The FAQs are silent when it comes to online transactions.

    Stupid question time so I’ll apologise in advance but do transactions with BA earn points with this card.

    First txn was two weeks ago for £17 for a seat res.
    Second txn was eight days ago for a cheap one way domestic

    Both are still showing as pending whilst every txn around them has awarded the avios within two days.

    My issue was fixed following a Chat with customer services. Use the chat function in the app. On Android it’s in the left side menu

    What exactly does this mean from the terms?

    any means of digital electronic payment method (including but not limited to Bitcoin or casino money

    Can I use this to purchase currency via Eurochange or similar or would that be blocked
