Card received from HfP offer period?
8th April 2022 at 10:23ml256
Applied 29th, accepted and subsequent acceptance email on the 1st.
Have now had multiple welcome emails.
Phoned them on the 6th to be told that they had no idea where the card is, even though I can see that the emails give the end 4 digits as part of the usual security measures. Phone support had no idea what to do except wait.
PIN through today, so hopefully card will arrive shortly.8th April 2022 at 10:24MD
Applied on 30/03 and got the dreaded 5 day referral, but no email confirmation (desire the eligibility tracker saying I’d be accepted). Today, which I make 7 working days since application, got an acceptance email. No card or PIN yet. I’ll forgive them their tardiness though, as they’ve given me a rather decent £35000 limit!8th April 2022 at 13:21Nath4n
Applied on 28th PM, received 5 day referral message – but then approved and activated on the 30th with large limit. No card, no pin. Barclays app showed card from 30th onwards, and have also received multiple emails and messages, including those encouraging me to ‘activate’ my missing card…
I’ll give it a few more days/week, and then ask them to reissue, as well as request a partial refund on the 1st months fee.8th April 2022 at 14:24rahaney
Update – No card today here neither. Also charged first months fee earlier this week.8th April 2022 at 14:57NorthernLass
I think everything is slow with BC! It took 2 weeks for my spend tracker to show anything at all. Yesterday morning I paid my final car payment split over Virgin and the BC, Virgin took the payment straight away whereas it’s still pending on the BC app over 24 hours later. Who knows when it’ll actually track for the SUB and voucher??8th April 2022 at 19:36Blindman67
Lots of emails asking me to activate lots of stuff
No Card or PIN yet.
Just rung CS
Apparently card posted 1st April-Should have been here 6th April.
Rob I hope you are proud…..9th April 2022 at 00:34jayjay
Applied late on the 4th of April – got some sort of ‘we will review and get back to you’ message but haven’t heard anything since. No rejection email either yet…so hopefully it’s gone through.
Pleased to say that the card arrived in the post today. No sign of a PIN, however I managed to get the PIN by registering for online banking so it’s all good.
World Elite Mastercard which didn’t work with the Travel & Lifestyle benefit as reported by many: https://travel.mastercard.com/, so I’m curious to see what actual benefits we can get.9th April 2022 at 15:56ml256
Rang again as still nothing, and was told that they are aware of the issue, that it is due to “problems with a card supplier”, and that they will send out replacements “by courier”
Time will tell…
At least they confirmed I haven’t been charged for it yet…9th April 2022 at 16:06BuildBackBetter
Applied 30th. Instant approval.
Received pin today.11th April 2022 at 10:00iamlost
My card finally turned up today, after a 2 week wait.11th April 2022 at 10:59rahaney
Copied from other thread.
Success Data Point!
Applied and accepted 28th, in app on 30th alongside Premier Account. Card arrived this morning 11th… so 10 working days or 2 weeks total for the wait.
Also just rang so I think I’m getting a refund on the £20 monthly fee that they took last week. Unfortunately however they can’t change the intro offer start date as it’s hard coded into the system. So I’m 2 weeks down from the 3 months already..11th April 2022 at 16:20DaveP
Card arrived this morning. Activated and ready to spend. Barclaycard communication makes no reference to the HfP 5k extra bonus Avios. I applied through the HfP link – will it automatically be credited alongside the 25k Avios?11th April 2022 at 16:51kebl2555
Applied on 2nd and arrived today.11th April 2022 at 17:36BuildBackBetter
Card arrived today. Applied 30th. Received pin two days back.11th April 2022 at 17:43StephenW
