    Barclaycard £50 gift voucher thread?

    Can't find it anywhere, it was about 6 months ago.

    Anyway, they still haven't sent it to me, wondering if anyone else got it?

    Think they're giving me the run around, several calls later and after speaking to several departments including one that only books flights(?) I have been promised a call back by the manager within 1 hour.

    Will report whether that happens or not!

    I bet it won't!

    I got my £50 argos vouchers but had to ring barclaycard and then the voucher office. the vouchers had to be used by the end of december I recall. Put mine towards a PS3.

    Amazing! How did you find that, I was looking under barclaycard and that's listed as barclay's card!

    Tried to rep but apparently I have to spread it around some more!

    Thanks csi,

    Do I not stand much hope then? It's their fault for not sending out the card so I'd better not lose out.

    BTW, if you're going out avoid the line painters, so much smoke and it smells disgusting!

    I've got expired on.

    I was using the advanced search as it's usually alot better but seeing as barclaycard wasn't in the title (I thought it was) it didn't find it.

    i put barclaycard in the search at top, then clicked deals to narrow it down when search came up, it was 4th down

    I want a £50 voucher! I want it, I want it, I WANT IT!

    Yeah, seen it. I tend not to use that search as it's usually awful!

    Are these the lines for the parking restrcitions? Last I heard was that they had put this back until the autumn.

    I assume so, there seems to be loads of line paining vehicles around the beach. But they've either made a bad job of removing the lines or they're adding more!!! I thought most of them were going?

    Hadn't heard anything about it being put back but didn't know when they were doing it either.

    3pm, they haven't phoned me (suprised???) so I'm back on the phone now!

    Original Poster

    Well, that told them!!!

    They've now sent off an e-mail to arrange a call back! So they weren't ever going to call me back by 3pm, liars! If I hadn't chased it they probably wouldn't have called back at all!

    Original Poster

    WOW!

    They promised a call back by 7pm, got called at 7pm!!! Spoke to the senior manager who has assured me it'll be fully dealt with in the next 6 days. He sounded genuine so I think he'll actually sort it.

    Really annoys me that you have to grind people down at these places for about half an hour until they actually do something and you start getting somewhere. It shouldn't be that way, they should just do it in the first place.

    probably cost you as much as the vouchers worth in phone calls, that what these gets expect

    Hope not!

    I try to work out how much chasing is going to be needed vs how much the result is worth.

    I've spent about an hour chasing this one and spent about £1 on calls so hopefully it'll be worth it in the end!

    Someone posted today about a result they got from Amazon, £40 refund for a camera they never received. Whilst it's good to get the result I've got a feeling that it took a long time and he might have been better off working instead. Not knocking him for chasing it, totally the right thing to do. It's just you never know how much chasing is going to be needed until you've finished. I had a funny feeling that one was going to take alot of chasing!!!

    Must say I'm impressed with Barclaycard, they were reluctant to do anything in the first place but I've just got a letter to say they've credited the £50 to my account so I'm happy. Better than having to spend the voucher.
