    You do not need to wait until they have been psid. As long as they have been set up on the account that you are switching means that they are active. 
  • This is discussed in the big thread for the switch offer: https://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/discussion/6482594/barclays-175-switch-offer-new-customers-only-nov-1-30-2023/p1

    It's safest to wait until the DDs have actually paid out, but as long as they appear in your online banking for the non-Barclays account you are switching to Barclays then you should be fine.

    very confusing and i have read lots of pages. I closed my barclays bank account in 2022 in a switch to another bank. i believe I am now eligible for the switch offer ?

    I have an active DD at the bank which includes ebay, ebay only take any money if theres a refund owed and took the last payment in August 2023, is this included as a valid dd ?

    Thanks for your help, still have to get my head around how blue rewards works
