Barclaycard "Bespoke Offers" and "Beat My Price" set to close
If you are not familiar with this service, it was pretty much a daily deals site but in amongst the tablet cases, charging cables and generic tech offers, they had some pretty impressive offerings including Tesco Grocery gift cards and Starbucks credit for half the price.
Also closing is their "Beat My Price" product which they use to undercut retailers and give you a better price on a particular product.
Why are they shutting this down? Well, no one is too sure yet. They did say:
"Following an internal review we have announced the closure of our Digital Marketplace business (incorporating our bespoke offers and Beat My price products).
"Our decision to close the businesses was taken after a detailed review of the financial performance to date and against their potential to deliver acceptable returns in the future.
"The business will cease to trade with effect from Monday 26 October. Any transactions that have occurred but not yet been fulfilled will of course be honoured."
If you've got an existing order, that should be honoured and voucher expiry dates will proceed as stated. However, we expect more information to be made available between now and the end of Monday.
