Barclays Cobranded Card Spending Offers: Get 5x On Up To $700 Spend At Grocery Stores, Drugstores & Restaurants


Chase isn’t the only bank offering select cardholders bonus miles/points on their spend in various categories. Barclays is back doing the same by targeting some cardholders with an offer giving 5x in some very useful categories.

The Deal

  • Earn 5x bonus points/miles on targeted Barclays credit cards when spending in the following categories:
    • Grocery stores
    • Drugstores
    • Restaurants

Key Terms

  • Expires ?.
  • Activation required by ?.
  • Limit 3,500 bonus miles/points.

Quick Thoughts

With a limit of 3,500 bonus miles/points, you’ll max out this offer when spending $700. Those bonus 5x earnings are on top of whatever your card already earns in the eligible categories, so that’ll make those purchases worth at least 6x.

Many people will be able to max out the offer organically seeing as this offer is valid for the next 12 weeks and so only requires an average of $58.33 spend per week. Even if you wouldn’t spend that much organically, buying a gift card or two at a grocery store or drugstore could be worthwhile to take advantage of the offer.

If you’re targeted for this promotion you should in theory receive an email about it from Barclays. However, apparently some people are seeing a registration link when logged in to their account(s) in the Barclays app, so that’s worth checking too.

Not that, like last time, there appear to be several different offers spread across multiple cards. Let us know what you have!
