I signed up the the PTSB rewards initially until I read here that by signing up you are allowing Visa and the bank sell, use or disclose your purchasing data as they see fit.

Yup, because we currently don't leave any traces between the cave and the valley?

id say it, the boots and the topaz offer are opening offers, the rest are pretty meh. Maybe they will have more good offers after the 18th. Worth signing up for anyways.

Will it has to be one single transaction to spend €35 in LIDL?

Do you have to do something to redeem each offer or will it be automatically credited to your card once you register?

From their site:
Money will be automatically paid straight to your registered AIB Visa Debit or Credit card typically within five business days

Will have a look at T&C later, but if something can claw back the charges then happy days

Why is the paranoid cynic in me questioning why the website directs you to https://aib.visaoffers.eu and not something like "https://aib.ie/rewards/"

Also, I'm always very sceptical in putting my account details into anything, you have to confirm these details in the email they send you.

I wonder would there be an option to do this in branch.

If it came from AIB it's probably safe

you don't put your account details anywhere, and the website is because it's powered by visa, not aib.

You can also verify by checking the websites security certificate. Which looks good in this case.

They just ask for card numbers, which alone wont allow any "hackerz" to use the card.

It's a visa white labelled product, AIB use visa mostly, why on earth would you want to do this in a branch?

Irish people (not directed at you personally) are in love with going into branches, cheques, non-contactless cards and everything from the 1970's when it comes to banking.

These offers don't really appeal to me as I don't shop in Lidl/Topaz.

Prefer the free banking KBC give me and the cash rewards I get each month for using my cards (less than €4 a month but suits me better).
