    You quote the @hfp twitter We will find out why on Monday
    So Rob and team were clearly aware and must be part of a broader strategy by Barclays

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

    Seriously? 😂

    That card has been a gold mine for years.

    Wonder if another bonus round of SUBs is coming and BC are preempting the early adopter backlash? Otherwise seems very out of the blue.

    the backlash was from the hfp offer if i recall but this offer is to a much wider audience

    This is also a gift given to those who have signed up for both the Premier Account and Avios Plus card and presumably excludes cancellers/downgraders.

    I have Premier but decided to go for the free Avios CC when the HfP promo ran, and I haven’t received any text.

    It’s for having Premier and Avios Plus together, not the free card per the text.

    For anyone with Blue Rewards, they have just brought out a Rainy Day Saver account paying 5% on balances up to £5k. Instant access.

    Did we get 50k sign-up or 25k?

    I didn’t get the text, signed up in June 2022.

    2+ hours on hold and no pickup, I can see why they give away all these Avios… cos the CS is turderific.

    Now this makes more sense.

    so existing members do not qualify for the new 100k bonus?

    Not if they already have both the avios plus card and avios rewards.

    Have had the Avios Plus card since April, and have not received a free 25k text.

    Have anyone’s points posted yet? I switched to a premier account and signed up the the black card about 5 months ago. I receive the normal 1,500 points around this time each month but got 26,500 today – however I’m unsure if this includes my 25k points due from switching current account (which I haven’t received up to this point) or if it’s the 25k bonus points mentioned in the text message I got. Anyone else able to share when they received their 25k points from the switching promo?

    I am wondering the same…

    Those who got the text, do you have the plus card and premier account or…? I was one of he earlier adopters but downgraded after months and months of shambolic CS. I haven’t seen a single avios in 3 months already…

    No text message or email received, I have marketing turned off on my account, I only knew about this when looking at my BA Executive Club statement. Quick google and this thread was found.

    No mention of Avios on the Barclays app.
