When does Barclays cashback change from pending to payable?

I thought it was on the 5th of each month. They keep sending me emails about my cashback, just wish they would actually pay it. They are very slow though, what other banks do in the early morning Barclays seem to wait until the afternoon, or not do it. Reading their many pages of very detailed information/t&c has left me none the wiser.

Once I’ve got my cashback or if I get it I’m cancelling blue rewards and cashback it’s just an annoyance. Roll on the next switch incentive.

    It stated something like "up to 35 days" when I queried how long to wait for the 'pending' cashback to be paid.

    The offer they did for Oct-Dec (5% up to £10) was paid either when you got to £10 or on the 2nd/3rd working day of the month, can't remember exactly, it might be in line with that timeframe?

    Depending on which other accounts you already hold, the Rainy Day may not be a reason to put up with Barclays any more.

    I have cleared my cashback out, emptied my Rewards Wallet and Rainy Day account, and cancelled Blue Rewards. 

    None of them are worth the poorest customer service that I have witnessed, and I have accounts with probably 25+ providers.

    No but I will keep it until another incentive needing two DDs comes up that I’m eligible for. Also there 0% purchases  credit card if I need one later in the year.

    Yes their CS spent ages telling me I ‘couldn’t make a complaint’! Like it’s within their gift rather than my right. Got my £5 back eventually and had got so beaten down I didn’t even ask for compensation. Seeing £5 taken and £5 credited to a separate BR account to increase the risk of going overdrawn gets my goat also. And looking at their cashback offers like Morrisons £3 off £30 spend, went there and item  on offer I would have bought out of stock so wasted journey, not worth all the checking, Barclays really want to ‘own you’ like all these cashback providers, nectar etc. 

    As for my cashback I expect their 5th of the month payment is delayed by new year or something who knows who cares, will be pleased to close the BR and CB debacle.

    Finally appeared as payable today late afternoon, well a portion of it the 5% on December spends that’s finished now. Still waiting for a payment to a Merchant to become payable hopefully before 2nd of February so I can ditch BR and CB prior. Too much faff for too little reward and being directed to think about spending on things I don’t usually need or want.
