All transportation cards expired half way which seems like a frequent "bug" among buyers, as metro station employees who issued substitutes told us. Other than that, the most popular place of imterest (Sagrada Familia) should be included, even as a small discount if free is not possible. Visitors should be informed explicitly that not all transportations are included (eg. night bus lines N*).
Barcelona card is worth it just for the free transportation alone, it plays for itself. We didn't use it for that many discounted or free admission options because of our itinerary. However, we used it for mixed modes of transportation everywhere we went and it was nice to be able to hop on and off without wearing about costs or payment cards. One transportation card for everything.
I would recommend picking up your card at the airport upon arrival, finding a BCN redemption locations can be tricky, and not all of them are open hours that may be convenient for you. Also recommend printing our your purchase slip, rather than using the one on your phone display, they had issues validating mine using the booking code on my phone.
The Barcelona card is really useful for people who want to visit many museums and attractions, and do not have a car. Besides the gratuities and discounts at museums, having 120h to travel by any public transportation mean is really comfortable and confident in very handy for a tourist.
Necessary for your mobility in the city!! Also some attractions offered were very interesting! The only thing that i didnt like was that after midnight (when the metro was closed) we couldn't use it for night buses.
