Already got 2 Hilton cards - one of which is the Hilton card

My other card doesn't have the option to convert.

So this is not for me

you get the rebate if you're paying £12 for the avios premier account.

Does it show up on the current account rather than the credit card? Nothing showing on either here.

Just had the bonus offer email. 25,000 Av on the way. How long did it take to post into account can anyone confirm?

I am sure that I did apply via the HfP link, but cannot find where I can locate the application contract/documents to check. Any ideas, Rob, how to find it?
It's a bit long winded but in the Barclaycard app, go to '... more', then 'statements and documents', then select the 'documents' tab and the pre-contract docs should be there.

Also, I had no record of the HfP 5k anywhere in any Barclays 'avios to be transferred' - but I can see it as a deposit in my recent transactions in BAEC. Of course, ba.com isn't displaying my statement but I can see enough recent transactions in the BA Rewards app to see the 5k.

I think the avios transfer across at the beginning of each month - last months earned avios arrived in my BAEC on 4 May.

Thanks. Have followed the app navigation as you suggested and my message in Documents is 'You don't have any documents her yet'. Will keep searching.

What a strange company Barclaycard are!

I applied for this card a couple of weeks ago, got the message at the end of the application, "we need more information".

Not heard anything at all since then.

Took them a month and a half to make a decision about my application, and they only made one after I emailed a manager at the company.

Has anyone been able to apply for this card while already holding a Barclaycard?

In my case I had a Platinum credit card, but they said I was ineligible.

Phone support could not explain why, so I've cancelled my Plat card out of annoyance!

you can only have one barclaycard product at a time. Think you have to wait 6 months now before getting this.

Not quite so.. I had two Barclaycards for many years, the Hilton and the Platinum Visa. After a month or so of looking on the BC app the Platinum became swappable for the new Avios products. I requested it in April (on the app), it was swapped on the statement date in May and I now have a new BC Avios Card plus my old Hilton Card.

BC said to me I could switch cards through the App, but when I tried, it didnt even show the card - much to the surprise of the phone agent I eventually spoke to.

Keep looking, my option to swap just appeared one day out of the blue.

Apple Pay now seems to be working for me with this card.
