    Just received odd text from Barclays- sorry if theres a whole thread on this already!-

    “We really hope you’re enjoying Barclays Avios Rewards and B.Card A+. To say thanks for being one of the first people to sign up for both, we’d like to give you 25k Avios for free. We’ll automatically add them to your account by the end of October. Your Barclays team.”

    Now it may be a scam , it appears to come from Barclays.Guess I jus wait to see if its true. If its true then its customer surprise and delight in action !

    Anyone else had this out of the blue?

    Got the message too. Sounds like a free lunch for all.

    phil

    Yep – I got one too!

    Yep. Barclays actually rewarding loyalty, a nice surprise and very generous actually.

    Eoc

    Seems it is.
    Not sure it will stop me downgrading now the annual targets just achieved tho..:)

    If it’s genuine, you can guarantee they’ll screw it up in some way, they will probably remove 25k avios from you every month or something 😉

    Congrats if it’s true and if it goes through okay 😀

    AndyGWP

    me too – hmm… I downgraded the other day 🤦🏻‍♂️… wonder if they’ll appear for me at the end of October

    mj1a

    Me too – although wouldn’t put it past them to describe this as the 25k I’d be getting anyway as the additional 25k sign-up bonus…

    Whilst I complained early on about the poor service from Barclays they seem determined to make up for it. This is a generous bonus

    adamh28

    Ditto. Happy Friday!

    In a way tops us earlier birds up to the level of the more recent 50k SUB. Interesting whether HFP knew this was coming?

    BugAlugs

    Made me happy 😃

    JDB

    Yes, very welcome to see Barclays rewarding loyalty in a really very generous manner while leaving the early cancellers who came in to nick the 25k out in the cold. I hope Amex gets wind of this as well since their policy is only to reward disloyalty and tell loyal cardholders to go and boil their heads.

    Alas, opened an account late March 2022, and no message here :/

    danimal

    So is this in addition to the 25000 for opening a premier account which have been sat pending for months and never been added to my BA account.

    NorthernLass

    There’s something odd going on with the app just now as well!

    Carlos

    is this for those who didnt get the 50k bonus>

    Skywalker

    There’s something odd going on with the app just now as well!

    Like what @Northernlass?

    rahaney

    Received text earlier today too. Makes up for the delay in receiving the card for me!

    Sounds like it was for those who do both avios rewards through premier and have the av+??

    I suppose it is £27pm even with the rebate 12+20-5… but 2 vouchers per year instead…

    Wish you could combine it with an Amex though! 😂

    NorthernLass

    All the account info seems to have disappeared. There’s a separate thread.

    ankomonkey

    I’ve had the Hilton Barclaycard for about 10 years. Where’s the big loyalty reward from Barclays for that?

    bartas8891

    Since when do banks value loyalty? :O
