Found 15th Jul 2017
Halifax is now offering £20 Cashback for people who take out the card from today until 3rd September 2017. All you have to do is spend ANY amount abroad in foreign currency by 30th September 2017

Great for the holidays

- Cashback offer valid on accounts opened by 3rd September 2017
- The £20 cashback will only apply on the first transaction made abroad by 30th September 2017
- The £20 cashback will be applied to your credit card retail balance within 90 days of the transaction being made
- The cashback offer is only valid on one transaction per customer

So if the card wasn't good enough already this might be the reason you want to apple, additional benefits include: (there is also another thread which includes these benefits but though id mention anyway)

- No fee to use anywhere worldwide (interest charges apply)
- No cash withdrawal fee (interest charges apply and some ATM providers may charge a fee)
- No annual fee

It's a reminder so it can be reposted! And as it ends on the 3rd sept its worth reminding about

honest, guv

OP feel free to remind people of this excellent card lol
I don't think the reminder is necessary
September the 3rd is very far away anyway
I got my £20 back 3 days ago, so thanks for the original post I bought a pack chewing gum whilst in Spain, then paid the 50p back . Took 7 weeks to get my £20 but it's free money

not really, I make it 6 and a bit weeks

that's when we fly back from summer hols
For those going on holiday, the monzo bank card is an excellent option. I'm using mine in peru and saving loads on bank fees
This would explain the random £20 that showed up on my account.

Is there anyway to purchase something cheap say in France online from UK to qualify for the £20, maybe using a VPN to make appear I'm out of the UK?
These cards are great. I've been using mine since Nationwide went to Europe only for their free withdrawals, so that's been about 36 months of actual travel over a few trips.
Check out Monzo for fee free purchase cards.

If you use this as intended i.e for holidays, and have zero balance in between. Then these guys try to close your account due to lack of use. Done it to me twice now.

Please note that whilst you're not charged for withdrawing cash, you get charged interest from the day you withdraw it, there's no interest free period when you withdraw cash on most credit cards...

I do as I missed it first time round. Big help for me, thanks op
Do you get charged interest if you withdraw cash but already have a credit balance which covers the amount?

True but Barclaycard's new travel card doesn't charge interest as long as you repay the statement in full.

I've not checked the market, I'm sure some cards treat cash withdrawals as they do purchases. I just thought the description was a bit misleading - no fees at all. Technically true, but you'll still get charged interest no matter when you clear the balance.

No interest charges when card is front loaded. Also they have decent balance transfer rates with no fees if you need to shuffle without affecting credit rating.

Is that 100%? That could save me a few quid as I'm normally withdrawing £600 a month for 4-8 months a year, so that interest soon adds up!
A great card, just a shame they stopped the £5 credit each month you spent £300 on the card (other terms and conditions applied).

It's nothing to do with not paying attention, some people clearly don't have as much time on their hands as you do

Why don't you pay it off the same (or next) day. If you are not able to, then the card isn't right for you in the first place.

Because I've better things to do with my time than to try to find somewhere I can securely get online whilst I'm travelling.
Do you do much long term travel? Which card is right for you that I should choose over this?

Well either pay the balance immediately or load the credit card with a positive balance before.

That's the fee for withdrawals. The interest rate is over 24% that you'll pay that until you've cleared the balance. I got the earlier version that came me 0% interest until August 2018 on cash withdrawals aswell.

I've had my card for about 2 years and only have a balance on it twice a year. I've never had any problems with my account being closed due to inactivity.
