Forums Payment cards Barclaycard Avios Spending on Curve card and bonus Avios

    Hello all,

    Just want to ask you guys, does sending on the linked Curve card qualify for the bonus Avios amount?

    Currently, all of my spending via the Curve card doesn’t seem to be tally up on my bonus spending meter on my app.

    Thanks

    Yes, spending via Curve is fine, so long as the merchant you’re spending with earns Avios as the MCC is passed over (e.g. regular spend, no cash advances).

    My bonus counter never moved (still shows £0 spent!), but I got my bonus after the required spend.

    Thanks, funny enough, all of the spending earns Avios at the moment which does tally up. So, I guess it went through without updating the Bonus Avios meter?

    Was that the counter for the SUB? Mine isn’t moving either – I keep asking about this but not getting a response either from Barclays or HFP!

    Where is this “bonus tracker” for avios that everyone is talking about? I’ve looked in the app and website but can’t see the tracker anywhere, unless I’m missing something!

    In the Barclays app, click on the credit card, click View your Avios, and you should see your welcome bonus and yearly spending reward trackers.

    Hmm, in the app, I can see the current account Avios reward taret of the BA Cabin upgarde voucher, but none for the credit card

    Similar issue here. There isn’t anywhere I can see any avios accrued nor reward trackers. I messaged Barclaycard on twitter and all they could say is that “some features of the app may not be available for a few days when you first register for security reasons so I’d recommend checking back in a few days”. I’ve got the app and activated my card two weeks ago and still can’t see it though.

    However, I can see on my BAEC account that Avios from my March spending has been credited to my account, so at least that’s a relief.
