    Barclaycard cash back offer

    Barclaycard cash back offer 8th Feb 18 at 2:37 PM
    I have been trying to clarify a couple of points regarding the current cashback offer in respect of the "initial barclaycard". The terms and conditions do not make it clear if one transaction per 3 month period is sufficient or does it have to be one per month.
    Secondly, is there a requirement for a minimum spend to comply with the t and c's.
    Spoken to barclaycard on the phone and e mail but all they do is to "read" to me the terms and conditions, with which I am already familiar.
    Anybody else unclaer on this or is it just me being obtuse?
    Thanks

    This is a link to an old thread which sounds like the offer, which required that the card was either used to make a purchase each month or that a payment was made towards an existing balance in each month - so it would be a purchase every month in order to get the cashback without paying any interest: http://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/showthread.php?t=5295421


    Just had a quick look on the Barclaycard site though and couldn't find anything relating to a current offer of that kind. The offer I found was 0% on purchases for 3 months from account opening.
    Sealed Pot 11 #520 ~ /£100
    VSP 2018 #9 ~ £19.55/£180.00
    CCCC 2018 #1 ~ £20.75/£180.00

    The current offer is in respect of applications for what Barclaycard are calling the INITIAL Barclaycard and comprises an offer of Forty pounds cashback over a period of twelve months, subject obviously to the published terms and conditions,

    There is a link to the offer on MSE website and it is on Barclaycards website

    I have actually applied successfully for the card which is up and running. Just can't seem to clarify the points I raised earlier. Will try again wilh Barclaycard.

    It's one transaction per period. They class a period as every 3 months.

    You will also need to keep your account active by making a purchase in each period (months 0-3, 3-6, 6-9, 9-12).

    Secondly, is there a requirement for a minimum spend to comply with the t and c's.

    There's no mention of minimum spend, just make a purchase, so you could just buy a banana for like 12p or something and that will suffice.
