This is not a freebie, you pay for it through your card as its operational profit and loss. This is more like information for Barclays debit users only as Barclays make money back from these users. It is only free if you gave them any card and then they put a photo on it regardless.

Lol

They send you a new card with your photo on it for Free, I don't think we need to go technical or confuse people

Since when have Barclays charged debit card users through their cards for anything other than their purchases? Even if they do, what would the shared cost of personalising cards be -- 1p a year?

You could say the same about basically every freebie on here.

Vast majority of freebie here are no obligation, no purchase, and/or available to everyone e.g. Kindle free books from Boz, free cinema tickets, Ideal Home exhibition, audio books, games from Origin, apps and games on Amazon, iTunes, Google Play, trials, perfume sample, promotional items, free thermals from Uniqlo, free calls, charity donations.....you just review the recent pages of freebies and you see what I mean by vast majority.

kindle books are not available to anyone without a Kindle

Available to everyone means to everyone. Like an item on the shop shelf, it is an invitation treat, whether or not you can realise with your specific personal situation is beside the point of availability, it does not mean it is not available if you cannot get it. A classic example, a cinema in Stafford has 100 free seats available. It would be daft to say, "The seats are not available to anyone who cannot get there."

Far to technical for the average HUKD user.. I'd say it's a plastic debit card with a picture on it and it's free if you bank with Barclays. Operational profit and loss doesn't really relate to the actual plastic card that they pop in the post

Let us not get too technical and legal, that will be close enough to be deemed a freebie (though if do get round to analyse the T&Cs of Barclays the card is the ownership of Barclays).

Simply, unless one has a low IQ,one will find a hen's tooth freebie easier than a freebie from a bank.

As an analogy, your Qihoo 360 Total Security deal is not a freebe, you pay for it through decreased revenues from UK based security software firms, which in turn means taxes need to be raised in the UK by other means.

Sophos? Although they're not truly comparable as, unlike Qihoo, they were not found to be cheating in the antivirus tests.

Edited by: "gwapenut" 19th May 2015

Regardless, would you state that your Qihoo was free if there were no UK tax revenues affected by a "freebie", but not if it did put up the tax burden by a fraction? No, of course not. The same is true of this debit card deal.

Do you want a mod to move it to deals? Would you be happy then? Or would you complain that it should be in freebies?

Not for all ppl, for some it is £25 charge

I managed to do this on my cards eventually. They won't accept logos or celebrities and the card that's on display (Heath Ledger/Joker) certainly falls foul of their rules - I know as I tried to have one Batman and one Joker

tried twice both times didn't hear anything and never got the card. Anyone actually received one?

Yea I got one a while ago

Yes but it was a right PITA to get it right. No logos, no celebrities, no brands, no copyrights, no famous pictures, no slogans...

Thanks

Where'd you get that from?

I've had mine for a while.

I have two accounts both with personalised cards - I've changed the picture on one of them and I lost my wallet 2 weeks ago, new cards arrived both personalised with the latest pictures I uploaded

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?

i had this done a year ago and it is a good picture likeness and comes off good

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
