I recently redeemed 10,000 miles for $100 of travel expenses. However, my total balance due has not changed. Shouldn't the balance change from ex. $1,000 to $900 after the $100 redemption?
As mentioned, you just need to wait a little until it actually hits your statement as a credit. It'll go down! Congrats on your redemption! Those are my happy moments, haha. :)
Hi @ewoketravler, Thank you for your question. The helpful folks in this thread are correct, the redemption will display on your statement. Thank you everyone!
Thank you, Jen and everyone. I'm glad to hear the redemption actually will make my balance go down. It was just confusing when I saw the total amount "paid" went up but the balance did not go down. Good to know it will eventually go down but this is something Barclays should fix, its deceiving.
Not sure that it’s deceiving. When you make a payment (either through points or cash) during a cycle, the balance is not reduced until the next statement is generated at the end of the cycle.
