Hi all,
i've had my barclaycard initial for just over a month and have just noticed that i received a £15 cashback in my cc account a couple of days ago. i dont seem to remember any cashback offer when i applied (only 0% purchases for 3 months) and there's nothing on their website mentioning cashback at the moment. seems to be about 5% based on my spending in the first month.

anyone knows anything about it and how long will it last? :)

    Did you apply for it rhough a comparison site? I have some hazy recollection that Bcard have offered a cashback incentive through those in the past.

    In which case, it will just be a one off.

    i applied through moneyexpert where they offer a £25 cashback, which was promptly received within a week. no extra cashback from barclaycard was/is mentioned on moneyexpert. mystery :)

    They've offered 3% cashback on the Initial at various stages over hte last 18 months - generally for the first 3 or 6 months after opening. Perhaps the offer was on when you applied and now gone again.

    Phone them up and ask - they'll be be able to tell you.

    No probs. The cap has been £50 in the past, if that helps.

    MSE was advertising a £15 cash back with a £150 spend as long as the £150 was spent by the end of march with a barclaycard which also came with a 3 month 0% on purchases offer. You also needed to click to the application page through MSE to be eligible for the cash back.

    Not sure whether it's the initial (EDIT: dug up some paperwork and it is the initial). As far as I'm concerned it's a barclaycard and it should give free money, and it will be ditched once the free money has been paid unless they're going to offer either more free money or a loooong 0% offer and a large credit limit to stooz off :D
