Just received this, they must be rolling out the offer....
Explains why i haven't got it :)
I just got the Apple news one, I clicked through the email link on my iPad and pressed a button on top of my iPad, it done the Face ID and it was all done, code must have been automatically added, checked my subscriptions and it expires January, it said one month trial and four free. I will do the same in November for the music and July just before it expires for the TV, I didn't have to put in any card details as I already had one on there
Oh that’s good information. I didn’t get the offer but feel less bad about it now.
I had a years Apple TV free when I brought an iPhone just ended last week, tried to get another free year but to new members only ;(

Nice spot @mwc89 thanks for sharing and welcome to hotukdeals
I have one I got last year that is removable and it expires in 2024
... "The device can be used for payments for a minimum of 2 years". ... BUT ... "If your device has a non-removable chip [which this does have], upon expiry the chip will not work for contactless payment and cannot be replaced." I wonder what the real world life expectancy of these chips actually is and whether they have an industry mandated expiry.
Or save another £8 and get this silver cased, orange hour markers version. Clever marketing move of Barclays to get Boss branded watches behind their Pingit payment system. (they've also got a few Timex, Guess watches as well as payment bands and keyfobs) Materials: Case – stainless steel, Strap – half fabric, half leather Measurements: Case width – 52mm, Case depth – 12mm, Strap width – 24mm Battery: Battery required Chip: The chip in this device is non-removable Looks like this Boss watch is only given a 6 month warranty though. "...Warranty: A faulty device can be returned within 6 months for a replacement or full refund. To return your device, you must complete the returns form and return it, along with your device by post. Note – To exchange a faulty or damaged device, it needs to be within its 6-month warranty period, which starts from the date of activation. You can also contact us without using this form, but please make sure you provide full details of your order to help us to identify it. If your device was purchased through an approved retailer please contact them directly to make arrangements."

Free Pingit Fob with code usually £7.99 @ PingitFREE£7.99
I would think it's more likely due to this. "Forgetting your PINWhile contactless allows you to make payments without a PIN, it doesn’t mean you can forget it entirely. Card issuers only allow five consecutive contactless transactions that can be made before a PIN is requested in order to prevent fraud. So if you only use your card for small payments make sure you can recall the PIN to avoid getting caught out at the till." As you can't insert the pingit card, it's going to be a problem. That was on the lovemoney website. To be honest mine hasn't worked for months.
Barclays are being idiots. They are reducing credit card limits and also killing PingIt,a very nice concept. It is cash less and it is probable & almost discreet! But alas!
Got one. To use it have to activate it by going into a Barclays branch. I have a Barclaycard and went to a branch with an ID but they asked for proof of address. Told them I have a credit card from Barclays. They said I need a printed bill. Told them is 2021 and being a client already they can check who I am. They disagreed. Goodbye Pingit! Sorry for trying to be unfaithful Google Pay :o
Me too. I now use Starling Bank and my two boys have a debit card which you can top up and view spending. Costs £2.50 a month though.
We got the little Pingit key fob as a result of this thread. It's been brilliant. My son could take it with him after I'd topped it up and I could keep an eye on what was being spent. I've received an email to say Pingit will be no more from 30th June 2021. We have other ways of paying, but Pingit was so useful - we'll miss it!

Up and till last month I paid them £3 a month and they kindly gave me £12 back. Sadly I have just paid my interest only mortgage off with them and now I will loose money, as my interest was less than the rewards received for having the mortgage lol!
I was inferring nothing of the sort. Maybe the word 'down' was what gave you that impression? I will be sure to think of my adverbs more carefully from now on.
You were inferring they'd cut the benefits like many banks are currently doing when they just haven't. It's being going for many, many years at the £7 for £3 rate, but more recently they introduced a limited time offer for new accounts only so have cut nothing.
They still pay extra if mortgage with them
I’ve used it and accumulated quite a bit over the years. They used to pay extra if you had a morgage with them but it’s still £3 a month for not doing a right lot for those that qualify.

Apparently, these high rates are actually revenue neutral for the banks. The regulators were trying to get transparency - just a flat APR for comparison. Some banks were charging daily fees, some APR, some APR and a usage fee. Some people were paying hundred of pounds a year in fees for unauthorised overdrafts too. It was their choice to remove interest free buffers etc, this wasn't required.
Just received this; I hope that you and your family are well. Things continue to be uncertain and I know you might have questions or concerns about money right now, so I’d like to let you know about some of the new things we’ve introduced to help you since I last wrote to you. These include new step-by-step guides to help you take care of your banking from home, and temporary changes to reduce the cost of borrowing through an arranged overdraft. New ways we’re helping you Our coronavirus help page is being updated regularly with the latest information, tools and tips. Visit our website and choose ‘Coronavirus help’ to find out how we can help you. Banking from home guides - The Barclays app1 and our Online Banking service are the best ways to manage your money from home, so we’ve created some new guides to help you use them. We cover everything from getting set up to managing your payments and accounts. Search online for ‘Barclays ways to bank’ and scroll down to the new ‘Banking from home’ section. Arranged overdrafts - Whether you already have an arranged overdraft or would like to apply for one, we’re not charging interest on personal current account2 overdrafts until 30 April. Then, from 1 May to 9 July, we won’t charge interest on overdrawn balances up to £750. If you use more than £750 of your arranged overdraft during this time, we’ll waive some of the interest to reduce the annual rate of interest (EAR) from 35% to 19.51%, with interest charges capped at £90 per month. Check our coronavirus help page for details.

Yay more debt
Not sure if this helps, but NatWest are offering something similar but £500 overdraft limit and you have to apply for it. Someone from NatWest called me this morning. But as I never have to get into overdraft I didn’t pay full attention
Me too (skeptical) but I just checked and it's now showing £2000 overdraft instead of £1000 (shock)

Top offer by Barclays, this will help many including myself. Was hoping they would have a longer interest free period on the overdraft like some of the other banks. But baggers can't be choosers as they say ;)
Fair play Barclays
It’s almost like they are setting things up for an almighty recession
I am shocked, wait no I’m not actually surprised to learn Barclays aren’t offering any of their customers real help such as payment holidays and as others have pointed out the sky high interest rate for the overdraft after 3 months is appalling. I have banked with them for over 20 years and do not require any help from them at this time, however as soon as this Coronavirus panic is over I’m going to close all my accounts and investments with them. I know this makes no difference to them but hopefully many others will also take the same action.
Overdrafts with barclays are a joke
