    I would say it’s often better to just refer to any product literature that exists as literature usually is looked over by many knowledgeable (and highly paid) people within a company before being signed off and published and it’s also what call centre staff will end up turning to anyway to try and answer a query.
      
    The problem is in many cases even the literature is either poorly written (as in the Barclays case), very ambiguous or simply not granular enough for those who look for ways to enhance a products attractiveness, like the people who read financial forums like this.
    However for the vast majority who dont need to know the intricacies they will be perfectly adequate and acceptable to publish.

    I upgraded to Blue Rewards on 1st May, and got my welcome email on the 5th. I put more than £800 into the CA, and then transferred out to the RDS between the 1st and 5th, but got an automated email today stating I didn't pay in £800. I will pay in a further £800 to be safe, but it seems to me their systems still haven't been fixed regarding this. The point has been added to my existing complaint, so hopefully it is fixed this time.
    If you want me to definitely see your reply, please tag me @forumuser7 Thank you.

    I wouldn't hold your breath. I made a complaint with them in December regarding them putting a default on my credit reports and they still haven't sorted it yet. I rang them this morning to ask for an update since I previously called them (6/3/23) only to be told they've done absolutely nothing since then and to call back in a week.

    That's really disappointing that it still isn't resolved by them! If I was you, I'd get your case into the FOS ASAP (if you haven't done so already) to avoid any further delay.

    Unless you enjoy complaining, simply fund your Barclays Current Account with a Standing Order instead of a Faster Payment, and get on with your life.
