This is not a freebie


For account holders it is.


It's only free if Barclays invited you to try it through an email, otherwise it's £19.99. Wouldn't call call this free.

Are these waterproof?
At the heart of it all is something very similar to a mini sim card so yes, the card is waterproof. But I'm not sure about the fobs/bands/etc that hold the card, as I have placed my card in something else.

If you have a salary of 75k+ I wouldn't be worried about a £5 free bottle of wine!!
Who said anything about worrying.... if you're close to a majestic walk in and pick up your free bottle. Zero stress or worrying involved. And now you make 75k+ and also have a free bottle of wine.
lol love all the cold votes for people who don't qualify. I myself will be enjoying my free bottle of wine.

Not sure why something for free would be voted cold?
Got a £10 bottle of red and £12 prosecco for free earlier.
I guessing it is being voted cold, as its only available to a limited audience. Still a deal is a deal for Barclays Premier Customers only

Probably because a small (minded) number of people believe you should only get something for free if you have an annual income of less than three buttons, one-and-a-half kippers (unsmoked) and an infinitesimally tiny amount of grey fluff.

I use this quite a lot too. Not as much as I'd like as there aren't any branches near where I live or work, but I go into central London fairly frequently.

Also worth mentioning that Barclays Premier customers get free entry to English Heritage properties, including one adult guest and up to 6 children.
Work in Central London and have been using this offer from more than an year now. Previously they had free coffee for two people on weekends but they have stopped that now!

And there's a fee for the account. I used to have a premier account I downgraded but the reward app still works
Couple of problems I can see here...
1) I've never heard of any of these retailers/outlets in my little bit of rural Devon, and
2) I don't pay in £75000 a year into my account.
I think I'll just stick with my Waitrose card. X)

How is thsis going cold?!
Because people on HUKD fail to understand that the fees are negligible if you borrow a larger amount.
Hot from me.
If you are borrowing 300k which is a pretty small mortgage in the SE then 1500 fees spread over 7 years = f all.

If / when rates rise and you can start getting 3/4/5% on your savings whilst paying 2% on your mortgage you will be laughing literally all the way to the bank.
Look at the low interest rate!...........hold on..............look at the wow! fees as well. Phew...they almost got me ;)
I've been looking to buy a house and the best I had found was 2.13% for 7 years at 70%ltv but the fees were about half that, I think it was £800.

I tried to use my dragon pass for myself and a friend at The Aspire Lounge in Liverpool Airport last year and we were turned away and told it was full,despite only about a dozen people being in there.
I was told I should have pre-booked. What I didn't realise is that you can't pre-book with the Barclays facility. When you ring the helpline ironically you are told it's a good idea to pre-book at busy times!
I will be traveling 3 times this year via Birmingham and Liverpool during the Summer holidays and quite expect the same thing to happen again!
What's the point of offering a service and charging for it, if people can't use it at the point of need! Someone needs to address this!!
I witnessed several other people being turned away from Barclays lounge in Liverpool and it's most distressing when you're looking forward to it at the start of your holiday.
On a positive note-have used the car break down service and travel insurance which was excellent.
It is a good deal and I have had the Barclays Travel Pack for a while

Airport lounge access I have used it for lounge access at Gatwick, Stansted, Heathrow, Southend, Malaga & Sharm airports without any issues.
RAC - I've had to use it one.
Worldwide family insurance - My family travels twice per year so handy to have
Key retrieval - Luckily never had to use it but it's good tyo know i'm covered
It may well work from Manchester, but it certainly doesn't work very well from gatwick.
The info came from a personal banker in my local Barclays, they were using it as a selling point for the travel pack.

Bare in mind that the airport lounge access cannot be pre-booked and you'll be lucky to gain admittance. My daughter failed last week at 7am in gatwick. They told her they were fully booked for the next month
I've never had trouble getting into a lounge in Manchester, and I've been several times, and taken full advantage of the food and drink! :D There are several lounges in each aiport too, there are five lounges in Gatwick, did she try any of the others?
There are only 2 in gatwick south, one full for the next month the other closed.
Barclays forums etc are full of people complaining about it. In fact Barclays stopped doing the airport Angel for that very reason and switched to dragon pass, which now suffers from exactly the same problem.
It's exacerbated ATM as the v-room is closed, but it's always been a big problem. We used the no1 lounge last year (with airport Angels) and were VERY lucky to get in. We saw loads turned away afterwards. The lounges are pushing the pre-booking side of it and quite simply Barclays needs to allow the same, ATM they don't.

Sorry, you're incorrect. CPP restructured and decided to close Airport Angel, that's why Barclays had to change providers. As I said previously, I've never had a problem with Manchester or Liverpool airports, but I've never flown from anywhere else. I always use the Escape Lounge in Manchester, love it there.

Seem's a good deal at that rate but would need to read the Ts&Cs especially with the 10% gaurantee. Problem is, compared to 10 years ago (at least for the south-east) is that even if you can offer a 100% mortgage, how many people can earn enough to cover the price of the house? You won't get a house for less than £300,000 in most of London (and flats aren't much cheaper) so you will need £50-60k to qualify.TBH if you are earning that on your own or as a couple you're already in a decent position and just need to improve a little. It's the ones earning a lot less than are in trouble.
I could only afford to buy as I had saved a decent deposit but lots aren't in that situation. My advise for anyone in their early 20s is save as much as you can so you have something later on. That's not to say you can't enjoy yourself but don't p**s your money away!

Or find another job outside of London. £300k will get a nice 4 bed detached in most parts of the country.

No offence to poster, but this is madness, has the banking sector learnt nothing from 2009.
Watch the film 'the big short', explains why a load of us received redundancy letters in 2009.
Were still getting letters this year and every year since. Lol got made redundant in 2010 and 2014, and my current place is gonna be doing cuts shortly. The only people buying are the non UK bunch, and they don't need mortgages.
must be loving the redundancy packets

Well the 2014 redundancy pay would have been about a months wages if it was just what has to be given (and that's assuming after 2010 csf went straight into the next job ).

People been saying for at least the last decade wrong time to buy, prices mental, crash around the corner. Yet prices now in most areas at an all time high. The money people are making from their homes is more than their salaries, their pensions or anything else. Rent is just money down the bog. The bigger the mortgage the bigger the returns, I would say jump right in on this deal. My first house in 1999 seemed unbelievably expensive at £115000 in the south, sold it in 2006 for £230000. Next one was £350000, now worth £600000+.
I'm an estate agent and this does concern me, all seems to be leading to another crash. Property prices where I am in some cases have gone up a third in one year! surveyors need to start downvaluing in order to hold the market back, bit counter productive as it doesn't help me in short term but I would rather see the market calm down about than another recession.

Don't see the point when Apple and Google can both let you pay with a mobile phone.
Anyone who had one previously was sent an email offering a free new one.
In my opinion the keyfob is better than the band.

I have the bPay band which I got for free when they first came out. great piece of kit just like a watch you can buy stuff with. Sounds like you guys dont like the idea of it but each to their own. I wouldnt however pay for it, thats just wrong, especially when you could get it for free, I registered after reading about it in the freebies section on HUKD!
Same here have a free one and will use it as I did my last one. I have found it great and quicker than cash. Totally secure as people would find out if they used one and the software that you download. Why do people put things down before they know what they are talking about, too much miss information on the web about bpay. If you don't know how they work keep quite. Also you don't need a Barclays account I link mine to my Santander account and move money when I need to it is a virtual wallet, and it's more secure than my real wallet...

Barclays are currently on a "sod the customer" road anyway. Have you tried going into one of their branches lately? Want to see a teller? You're told to use the machines. Complain? You're told they don't care and if you don't like it, use another bank.
Obviously the new leadership feels that cost cutting is more important than keeping customers. In the end it's just proof that the banks no longer make their money from customers, nowadays the vast majority comes from "investment" (read "gambling with other people's money").

Totally agree with this, had to pay some money in my local city centre branch last Tuesday. They have 4 machines that you are supposed to use for cash out and paying in. Great, except 3 were off. So you had to go to counter to pay in. They have 12 counter positions, 2 had staff on, and there were over 40 people in the queue. I asked were they putting more cashiers on, no sorry, all the staff were busy, yes, I counted 10 staff on the bank floor walking around asking if they could help anyone, if they were interested in switching their mortgages to them or applying for a Barclaycard, that type of thing. Complete joke.
Same as you i've had one of these contactless stickers now for over 2 years. Lol Barclaycard gave me one as a trail, most likely because i spend to much money. I removed the back of my phone case and inserted it on the battery no one even knows its there.

Whirly
They sent me one of the stickers for the back of my phone years ago. Tried it once and it wouldn't work. It stayed on the old phone when I updated.
In my experience, useless tech and previously free.

Kenneth131
also £500+ for an iPhone 6 or £12.50 for a bpay band mmmm
now I agree to some extent that paying for this tech is pointless given it serves no purpose other than allowing you to do what a bank card already does however if its a choice between apples ridiculous pricing and locked down OS or android, open source and a bpay band I think you would find I still have change of my £500 notes but hey you go ahead and use apple pay
Android from my experience have still to implement this fully and I find it's a bag of fragment at the moment. Yes, it's been available but I am yet to find a working solution in the UK. EE have their wallet app but you have to go through topping up as far as I'm aware, Samsung have theirs but again it's the implementation.
Your statement of "ridiculous pricing" I don't think can apply directly to Apple anymore. Look at Samsung ;)


agreed that the sammy s6 is nonsense as well with its price, Im just making a point that people vote this cold simply because its a payment method which you pay for but barclays have to make something back on the production costs of these.

Or people vote cold because they have an apple phone which they forget cost them £500 + for the Iphone 6 to use apple pay.

Some of us who have common sense would have a reasonably good phone and could actually make use of the bpay stuff. Think about a cyclist or runner who could wear the band rather than carry a wallet etc it is genuinely useful.

As much as I completely object to the pricing of apple stuff I agree android manufacturers are just as bad but you have options eg one plus etc which are more suitably priced.

I do believe digital wallets are the future and I applaud apple for brining it to the UK but dont vote a deal like this down based on the fact you own an Iphone for apple pay.

Doesn't accept flags. There's a list of what's acceptable, in the end I put a picture of a bonsai tree which died after a few weeks. I think u can change the picture upto 6 times per year
i had this done a year ago and it is a good picture likeness and comes off good
With the advent of chip and pin, the only person who generally gets to see my card is me - I would guess part of the reason for having a custom card is to elicit a response from other people who see it, so this is rather pointless now?

Just signed to this offer, really good

Help to Buy ISAs are essentially regular savers with 25% interest (if your intention is to buy a property in the near future). I only recently found out about the cap on property values of £250,000 though, that could mean it's a waste of time for me (living in the south east where a new 2 bedroom build has a guide price of £450,000).

I feel your pain :(

HTB ISAs are a fantastic bit of electioneering; the government has made a bad thing look good to those who it harms while at the same time giving their mates in the housing and banking sectors a boost (you don't think the interest going to be any good do you?). I could go on but as I've just done a night shift you're probably better off looking at the forums on HPC - some of the accountants on there have done a good job and digested it nicely.

The direct debit requirements are definitely annoying
Yeah but I can understand it though. They probably want to make sure this is your main account.
Yes, understandable but still annoying.

Does anyone know what the rewards are? Is it cash, or is it like a voucher for m&s or something rubbish like that?.

you can withdraw these rewards into your bank account so it's cash but I am not sure whether they r paying them net like halifax or gross. is tax applicable on same as in that case basic tax payer will only get £4-20%of £7=2.6 and high tax payer will only get £1.2

Does anybody know the closest workshop to Lincoln? Thanks
Code Academy or Code Club are probably better, plus your kids won't be being taught by criminals.

This is just social conditioning to get kids to like and respect sick liars in suits
Heat added but nothing offered around Cambridge? :-(
went to the Kings Heath, Birmingham on Wednesday, (i booked the session back in mid january) only about 10 kids turned up, it was a basic introduction to scratch, but most of the kids had already used scratch before in school. the branch manager ran the workshop, he said this was a one off workshop and depending on the feedback from the group they may have more of these workshops and the kids would be invited back, or workshops at other branches would be offered.

Thanks for the comment, I will have a think about it. I knew I would have to remortgage in two years, but my thinking was why couldn't I find a comparable tracker again in two years? So on my mortgage of £150k I would be saving about £50 per month for 24 months = £1,200 and then I remortgage and hopefully would be able to find a similar deal or another tracker. Either way its a gamble as there is also no guarantee that my rate would stay at 2.29%. However, you have given me food for thought so I will think about either sticking, fixing on this, or moving to first direct who have a base rate tracker at 2.19%. Cheers
the rate afterwards is 3.99% for the rest of the the term so you have to remortgage again to a better deal and theres no guarantee you would get one. Might have low payment for 2 years but much more expensive after. I'd stay on the 2.29% even though its variable for the term, thats a very good rate.
Anyone know a bankbuilding society who will re mortgage for a pensioner ???
Not sure, I think you should try a mortgage broker, sorry.
