I have been trying to claim my £95 reward card that I got for signing up to broadband in Jan 18. I have the card but cannot get the activation code from BT. I have tried live chat, 50 mins of phone calls, 2 months of emailing with the people that are meant to give you the code and still no code. I have a formal complaint with BT but just end up on the phone again with someone saying they can't resolve it.
BT keep saying this is something they pass on to Purecard. But you can't get a resposne form Purecard or BT. I think BT are doing this to make it hard to get the money as I can't se any other reason for such terrible customer service. I am looking at court action as I am so frustrated at being misled. Can anyone help fix this before I have to go down that route ?
@Nem the activation codes are emailed out by pure card and I'm really sorry they haven't responded to you. We'll raise this with the rewards team to see if they can get this sorted.

I got an email from, cardholder services, last week with my activation code. Outlook dumped the email into my junk folder. I would check there. If you find it, you need to go onto purecard.com to activate it.
So i have activated my card, went straight onto amazon to buy £70 worth of top up credit for there store, just wanted to bin the card. It gets declined and they charged me £1. Balance now at £69, so it is activated. Not sure if amazon just declined the card or if they automatically charge £1 for these prepaid cards? Maybe i should have tried a £69 top up.
I had the same with Amazon. Because it's a 'new' card number, they bill for £1 authorisation . They don't actually take the £1, it will reappear on your card credit after 10 days. See Amazon FAQs.
I was also after my activation code, checked all folders in my email and nothing.
However, I went onto Purecard website and immediately it asks to resend your activation code using the card id (front of reward card) I did this and it came over straight away!
You then just need to get your card pin after activation on the purecard website. All done within 2mins!!!
BT are not very helpful as this is all they needed to tell you.
Enjoy your spending!
I'm having trouble activating my card,I ca get onto the pure site but when I click send code it take around an hour to send it by which time it has expired.
Not a very good system
