When I redeem miles for a travel statement credit I have noticed that there are always 1 or 2 additional miles deducted above the total number needed for the statement reimbursement. Let's say the expense is $102.20, I reimburse the total amount for 10,220 points. Every time, as I said, there will be an extra 1 or 2 points deducted (10221 or 10222 points). While this is not a huge deal to me, I was curious if anyone else has experienced this. This is not a complaint, I'm very thankful for all of the benefits, I'm just curious. Other that this I have had exceptional experiences with redemptions.
I saw your note a little too late. I just redeemed miles a few minutes ago. I have never noticed what you have, but I probably wouldn't notice a mile, or two, difference. I'll be sure to look for it next month.
By the way, did you ever hear back about your missing miles from last month, are this month's OK?
Traveler917, No, I never got any type of response. My missing miles did show up with October's miles so I'm guessing they saw my email.
I'm not concerned about a mile or two extra for great redemptions, I'm just curious if it is only happening to me or everyone.
I have a redemption coming up soon. I'll see if it happens again. I'm not complaining, just curious, Barclays is very generous.
I just redeemed points and it did not look like extra were taken. It was the exact mileage it should be. I hope they fix it for yoy.
I just redeemed some points and it was not exactly what I wanted but everything went good. I booked 1 excursion for 4 people (for our upcoming Asia trip/cruise). I wanted to just cover the cost of our excursion because I am being reimbursed for the other couple's excursion. The options made available for my redemption did not include an option for only half of the cost. I had to use 15,700 more points than I wanted to use just to cover our half of the cost. I used my iPad for the transaction maybe next time I'll try my laptop to see if it has the same options. I wish there was an option where I could just put in the number of points (above 10,000) I wish to redeem. Has anyone else had this experience? Maybe it's an iPad thing.
