Barclaycard, which sees nearly half of the nation’s credit and debit card transactions, has announced a new Cashback Rewards programme with Visa giving shoppers automatic cashback when spending at a range of high street and digital retailers.
The programme provides customers with personalised offers towards their favourite brands, based on their previous shopping habits, when spending on their Barclaycard Visa credit card. Once signed-up, customers can start earning up to 15 per cent cashback when making purchases at a variety of well-known retailers including Uber Eats, Costa and Holiday Inn Express.
Customers can sign-up effortlessly by clicking through to the new Barclaycard Cashback Rewards site: https://cashbackrewards.uk.barclaycard/. Once registered, they then have access to personalised offers from their favourite UK retailers, both in-store and online.
The Barclaycard Cashback Rewards offers cardholders the opportunity to save money, as the easing of lockdown sees the return of more normal spending patterns, with Barclaycard data showing spending on non-essential items increasing by 9.4 per cent* in June 2021 compared to the same period in 2019.
In addition, complementary consumer research shows consumers continue to have value front of mind, with 40 per cent** shopping around for the best deals to make their money go further. Moreover, spending looks set to continue, as 20 per cent suggest they will be taking a staycation in the upcoming weeks.
Whether dining and drinking at a favourite eatery, taking a break in the UK or shopping at a much-loved retailer this summer online or in-store, the new Barclaycard Cashback Rewards will help Barclaycard customers make the most of their spending.
Cardholders can also have their cashback redeemed back to their Barclaycard, trade up for an e-voucher, or donate to a chosen charity. Those already earning cashback with an existing Barclaycard Rewards card could earn additional cashback of up to 15 per cent by signing up to the new Barclaycard Cashback Rewards.
José Carvalho, Head of Unsecured Lending said:” Our spending data shows that consumers’ shopping habits are changing. Not only do we all want more flexibility about where we shop, but we are also looking for better value for money in the purchases we make.
“Knowing how important this is to our customers, we are delighted to announce the new Barclaycard Cashback Rewards with Visa, helping cardholders get more out of their everyday spending on their Barclaycard. We have designed the rewards programme to provide tailored offers based on where our customers like to shop and most often, while also ensuring signing up is as seamless as possible with easy access to the rewards.”
Cathy Dargue, Client Director at Visa said: “We’re delighted to partner with Barclaycard for the new Barclaycard Cashback Rewards. Providing cardholders with the latest and best products has always been a crucial part of our longstanding partnership with Barclaycard, and the new programme will give cardholders access to better deals, and the opportunity to earn cashback - at a time when all of us are more conscious about how and where we spend.
“This has been a truly collaborative effort by both Barclaycard and Visa and we’re excited to give something back to customers though such a substantial rewards programme - providing better value when shopping at their favourite stores.”
