Just spotted this on MSE so can't take credit myself.

Sign up for a Barclaycard Platinum* credit card before Monday 22 October, and you'll get a voucher worth £50 when you use it to make a purchase. This can be used in M&S, Argos, Currys/Dixons, John Lewis, Boots, Debenhams, River Island and Next. This deal isnt available everywhere, only via certain websites it has deals with (this link takes you through one of them).

Simply spend any amount on the card once it comes (make sure you do it before 30 November 2007) and you'll receive a form asking you to choose which shop you want a voucher for. Fill it in and return it before 31 December 2007 to bag your freebie.

There is nothing special about asterisk (*) attached to Barclays Platinum so don't worry there is no fine-print :)

Many thanks, gone for this. Some of the benefits are handy too, 20% off dominos even when you call in :)
#5
Have some heat... definitely a good deal IMHO... :)
#6
Nice one, sick of getting hit with £20 interest every month on my current balance. 2.5% fee is pretty cheap compared to most cards which are around 3%. Sweetened the deal with £50 voucher!

Excellent!

Excellent deal.....added heat....don't know how to rep though...thanks,

Since when are credit cards a bargain? Sorry I can't see it myself. Enjoy your debt!

Yes they are great at first and they encourage you to spend freely, but you will regret it when you have too much to pay back and then the interest with increase. Then you will be stuck paying back £200 - £300 a month etc.

Don't see the appeal myself. For a £50.00 voucher? Why not just buy the stuff yourself? I despair I really do.

£50.00 is a drop in the ocean to Barclays. It's a honey trap that's all it is.

Don't apply then. I can manage my finances and have no problem whatsoever with my supply of credit cards. Why discourage others just because of your own personal opinion?

Great deal, hoping I can apply even though I have a regular barclaycard.

It's a community believe it or not. You have a supply of credit cards then? Congratulations. I just pay with money or my business card myself no need for credit cards.

I just think credit cards are a disaster waiting to happen. The more you have the easier it is to spend money on things you don't really need.

Barclays are one of the worst companies going too of course. You will see what I mean if you go into debt with them like many people I know have. Great deal though! :whistling:

Agreed, credit cards (if used correctly and in an mature fashion) can be a great way to save money and earn incentives etc. Also can help when being close to overdraft, can save you from charges etc. Like I said, only when you can control yourself to spend like an adult, if you spend on it like an immature kid or allow yourself to spend money you don't have then that's your problem!

If you can't control your spending then I would suggest this card is not for you, I for one can control my finances and am happy to take a £50 voucher for nothing. They will not get a penny out of me but I will get £50 voucher from them plus the interest whilst my money stays in my bank account a little longer before paying it off (normal household spend, not spending any extra because I have a credit card!)
#15
Having never owned a credit card, im pretty clueless and dumb when it comes to them... If I applied, was accepted, and used it to buy a £10 item... How does one "pay it off"? Will there be an online part of the site were you can pay from say a Bank of Scotland debit card? And say I paid it off the next day and never used it again - just dumped it at the back of my desk... Would anything ever arise from it or would i never owe them another penny for it's usage or anything? (assuming its never used again...).

Being a student coming up to the xmas period, a £50 Argos voucher is pretty appealing... I am strict with my money though and I believe if you dont have the money at hand, you shouldnt be spending the money you dont have... Although I do see the appeal of having one. But really, it's just the voucher I want :P lol...typical student miser! :-D
#16
:thumbsup: Applied for mine - was looking for a good balance transfer so 0% and 2.5% handling fee is one of the lowest plus 14months in which to pay it off - Great find.
#17
Worth a shot - £50 is £50

I have had credit cards for 8years and not paid a penny in interest!!- infact have made money through cash back incentives. I pay the full balance off at the end of every month through direct debt option. Do same for store cards that way get loads of benefits, money off etc and only pay same as i would cash. Good deal :thumbsup:
#19
i agree, i havent really paid much interest on any of my cards, most none at all, i always pay my balances off as much as I can (if interest free for purchases) or in full.

You can ask the company to take the full balance from your bank account evey month that way never pay a penny interest. Just make sure the credit cards you take out do not have annual charges.
#21
Exactly, if you can control your finances then credit cards are a great way to earn a little extra something back - the cashback I earn on my mastercard is a nice little yearly bonus!
#22
People people ... credit cards don't spend themselves - irresponsible people build up debt! I have a good £15'000 of available credit and never even use the cards ... so am I also a disaster waiting to happen?

I'm voting this hot - £50 voucher for spending some money and paying the balance in full? Yes please!
#23
Great spot, this is a free £50 voucher providing you use the card to purchase something you would have bought anyway. Nothing to stop you then cutting the card up if you lack the discipline not to use it.

Took all of 60 seconds to apply for, thanks.
#24
sweet No minimum amount applies to the qualifying purchase.

Of course this is a community - a community for bargain spotting not for preaching to other adults who are able to make informed decisions about their finances.

Again, just because credit is available doesn't mean you have to spend it. I must easily have £30k+ available to me in credit yet that doesn't mean I have the urge to max everything out. I like the flexibility it gives me in terms of paying something off after I have been paid or the online fraud protection.
#26
done
thankyou very much
i think i'm capable of managing my own finances thank you

Fair enough but you have 30k available to YOU. What if someone takes your wallet? They would have 30k available to THEM.

Now this is something you couldn't do through a bank because most people have limits and only 1 or 2 accounts.

They are just dangerous things. Just don't see the need for them. I am not preaching but you can tell by some of the posters that they will end up in debt. If you are 'unsure' of credit cards my advice would be not to get one.

I am not really bothered either way but just wanted to make people aware that their are dangers with these cards. Yes responsible spending is fine but if those cards go missing your in trouble. Do you know how long it takes to get money back from stolen purchases? You are lucky if you get it back to be honest.

Maybe. I know people who have got into a lot of financial trouble because of cards similar to these.

I will let you make your own minds up. :thumbsup:

Credit cards are like knives. If not used properly youve got a problem. If you used them right and maximise their advantages, youll be getting a well deserved payoff.

i.e. cashbacks, slow stoozing, fast stoozing, balance transferring out of bad % deals, buying products now with 0% purchases cards which allow you to control the payments, use this money to slow stooz or pay for other expensive loans you may have, getting the £££'s out of them so you can pay for emergency transactions, open on quidco to get cashback incentives, etc .

Seriously you gotta live under a rock or extremely naive to say CC arent a powerful tool. Its actually laughable. And like with everything they need to be used right.

You assume every one with a Credit Card is incapable of tending their own finances, just because that may be your experience with them (through people you know, or things you have read since you say you have no problems yourself) doesn't mean every one on the planet will be 'sucked in to debt' by them.

No harm having a handful of credit cards with a total of £30k credit available, but you'd be foolish to carry all of them on you all the time!!

I think this is a hot deal :thumbsup:
#33
Quality £50 spend for free!! :-) pay card off and bin :)

Suppose you could class letting anyone use HUKD dangerous, giving them deals to buy all day every day? or it COULD be most people have control over there spending and HUKD is the best site on the web! ;)

so there is no annual charge, if i made a purchase of £5 i would qualify for the voucher then cut the card up that wud b the end of it!!

Sounds kooooool

I have been trying to open direct link above (pg 1) and get redirected to this address [COLOR="RoyalBlue"]http://adfarm.mediaplex.com/ad/ck/8522-50059-7764-249?mpt=[CACHEBUSTER][/COLOR] which still although says "done" shows a blank page.

Have tried through moneysupermarket links and still cannot open barclaycard site, have managed to open abbey and halifax. Does anyone else have this problem or is it just me. Am computer novice so any help would be appreciated.

Ps have tried to bypass firewall and clear cookies, still no good (internet security - kaspersky)
#36
Many Thanks to all.

Looks a good deal.

Always willing to take £50 for nothing and 3 months interest free,now what do I want to buy for Maybe 5 or 6K.

Cheers

Terms and Conditions For the £50 Voucher Offer

1. This offer is only available to new customers taking out a Barclaycard Platinum with a 14 month 0% balance transfer offer (2.5% fee).



Does this mean that you only get a £50 voucher if you do a balance transfer?
#38
sorted now - turned firewall off completely and works fine

Fair enough but you have 30k available to YOU. What if someone takes your wallet? They would have 30k available to THEM.

Yes, and you're protected from fraud by both the law and the bank's usual extremely liberal fraud protection policies. Frankly, "someone may steal your card" is probably the worst excuse not to get a credit card, as fraud protection is probably the best reason to get one.

Now this is something you couldn't do through a bank because most people have limits and only 1 or 2 accounts.

Good luck claiming money back if someone steals from a debit card though. Unlike Credit Cards, you have no legal protection against fraud.

Do you know how long it takes to get money back from stolen purchases? You are lucky if you get it back to be honest.

Lies, I'm afraid. Not only do you usually have upto 56 days interest free with a credit card, but you have legal protection thanks to the Consumer Credit Act. You're liable for a maximum of £50, which the banks usually waive anyway. Say what you like about credit cards, but they are stupidly, stupidly safe.
