Barclaycard Freedom - How it works
Barclaycard Freedom is a reward programme like no other. With Barclaycard Freedom you automatically earn Reward Money (not points or fiddly vouchers) at participating retailers, which you may then be able to redeem on your next transaction at selected stores within the programme. (Experience at retailers may vary)
You just need your existing Barclaycard
As a Barclaycard customer you may already be part of the programme – so to start being rewarded, just shop as usual at participating retailers.
Over 30,000 retailers, nationwide, have been invited to take part in the programme, from high street stores to local shops. That means more places for you to earn Reward Money which you may then be able to redeem on your next transaction at selected stores within the programme
Reward Money not points
Unlike other reward schemes that offer points or vouchers, Barclaycard Freedom gives you Reward Money, which you can use to pay for goods or services at selected stores.
Easy to earn. Easy to redeem.
It's easy to be rewarded for shopping as usual. With the range of retailers involved and the frequently changing offers and promotions, you can choose to shop where you get the best deals.
