    On redeeming my Barclays Blue Reward I saw an option to sign up to Barclays Cashback Rewards. I signed up and it looks like the same system as Virgin/RBS/NatWest. Maybe useful for some (e.g. cashback on your first spend, so if using Virgin on the first purchase use RBS next etc).
    Yes, I noticed and signed up to it the other day but it said I needed to wait a day or two before I could access it. You've reminded me to have another look and the top offer for me is 5% cashback on Barclays debit card spending in the UK, max reward £10, *in addition* to any retailer cashback from other offers. Pretty good but I only have 12 days in which to use it so I might just do the usual with these and buy a (discounted) supermarket gift card.

    Just wondered where do you get your discounted supermarket gift cards from?

    Airtime Rewards offer 4% at Asda, M&S, Morrisons, Sainsbury's and Waitrose, and are open to all. 

    I personally use either them or Perks at Work which is a scheme offered through a former employer. I've also used Sodexo's similar platform, which was more generous but much harder to use.

    Just signed up to airtime rewards but couldn't find the 4% at Asda? Any ideas where i'm going wrong?

    If you buy your M&S and Waitrose gift cards at Boots you'll get 5% on Airtime Rewards x

    I'm aware Virgin Money states 10WD for a transaction to show for cashback and 35 days to show in available balance. But generally, how long have people found it takes from the date you have a pending payment that will be eligible for cashback clear, till the date the cashback shows as pending please? Specifically LNER if anyone knows about that one, but knowing about others would be helpful too please. Wondering if it might come early. Thank you
