For a limited time, Barclaycard has increased the bonus offer on the Barclaycard Arrival Plus World Elite MasterCard, to its highest ever bonus of 50,000 points! This is 25% more then its previous bonus offer of 40,000 points.
To get the 50,000 point bonus, you’ll need to spend $3,000 on your card, within the first 3 months of card opening.
You’ll earn 2 points for every dollar spent on this card. Plus, every time you redeem your points, you’ll get 5% of the points back, that can be used towards your next redemption.
The annual fee on this card is waived for the first year and there are no foreign transaction fees with this card.
Miles don’t expire as long as your account is open, active and in good standing
There is also a 0% introductory APR for 12 months on Balance Transfers made within 45 days of account opening.
The best way to redeem your points, for full value, is to redeem them for travel related expenses. Any time you have a “travel” charge of $100 or more to your card, you will have the option of receiving a statement credit towards the travel expense at a value of 1 cent per point (+ you’ll get the 5% back).
Travel expenses include: airlines, hotels, motels, timeshares, campgrounds, car rental agencies, cruise lines, travel agencies, tourist attractions, discount travel sites, trains, buses, taxis, limousines, and ferries. there are no blackout dates or seat restrictions. (Though of course you can always just book a refundable plane ticket to redeem your points, and once the points are redeemed, you can simply cancel the refundable ticket.)
