In March of 2016 I was happy to get approved for the JetBlue Barclaycard.
I received the Plus version which gave me 30,000 points after spending $1,000 in the first 90 days. There are some perks that come with the card like free checked bags and 6 points per $1 spent on JetBlue. You also get 10% points back each time you redeem.
When the $99 annual fee posted I had a big decision to make- keep the card or close it. Continue reading Did I Get A Retention Offer for the JetBlue Barclaycard
In early November 2016 I was approved for the Barclaycard Arrival Plus Mastercard.
The card comes with a very solid bonus of 50,000 miles after spending $3,000 within the first 90 days. (The bonus is worth $500+ towards travel which is valuable for obvious reasons.) Continue reading Barclaycard Arrival Plus Congratulates Me A Bit Late
Last year I received a retention offer for my AAdvantage Aviator Red credit card.
The offer wasn’t a lucrative way to earn a bunch of miles but the annual fee was waived on my card. This gave me another year to try out the card with no strings attached. Continue reading Did I Receive A Retention Offer for the AAdvantage Aviator Red Card?
I recently received a mailer and then an e-mail about an interesting offer from my JetBlue Mastercard. (I have the JetBlue Plus Card from Barclaycard.)
With the offer, I can save up to $20 just for using my card at a select group of online merchants.
Here is how the offer works: Continue reading $20 in Statement Credits With The JetBlue Mastercard
I recently received a bonus offer from my AAdvantage Aviator card where I can earn a bonus of 30,000 American Airlines miles!
While the offer sounds very nice, it also requires a good amount of spend over the course of 6 months to earn the bonus miles.
Let’s take a closer look at the offer. Continue reading Earn 30,000 Bonus American Airlines Miles
The Wyndham Rewards credit card isn’t a card that I frequently use so when the annual fee posted I figured that it would be an easy decision to close the account.
It wouldn’t hurt to call in to inquire about a retention offer. However, I never really got a chance to do so.
Let me explain. Continue reading Did I Get A Wyndham Rewards Credit Card Retention Offer?
With 2016 being around 1/4 of the way in, it’s time to start earning some miles and points from credit cards. To date I’ve only earned 25,000 miles from the Alaska Air card.
I’ve been hoping for a big offer to come out, but there hasn’t been many credit cards to get overly excited about. I recently had reconsideration line success for the Chase United card. Continue reading An E-Mail I Was Happy To Receive from Barclaycard JetBlue
Yesterday I wrote a post wondering if you closed your Amex card in hopes of getting a JetBlue Barclaycard bonus.
While I didn’t recently have the American Express JetBlue card, Kim did. I had her close the card in hopes that she would qualify for a signup bonus for the Barclaycard version rather than just have it converted over (from Amex).
When Kim closed her card, she asked the rep if her info was already sent to Barclays and if she’d be receiving that new product. The rep had told her no.
All seemed good in terms of her applying for a JetBlue Barclaycard but now I’m not so sure… Continue reading Amex Closed, JetBlue Barclaycard Delivered- Still Hope for the Signup Bonus?
When it was announced that current American Express JetBlue credit card holders would have their card transferred to the new JetBlue Barclaycard, I told Kim that she had to close her card ASAP.
I originally figured that American Express would want to transfer her card to another one of their products and was a bit surprised to hear what would be happening. Continue reading Did You Close Amex Card In Hopes of Getting JetBlue Barclaycard Bonus?
A couple of days back I wrote about two different offers that Kim and I received for our AAdvantage Aviator Red cards from Barclays Bank.
Kim received a far superior and easier to earn bonus offer (which requires a certain amount of spend to be done on the card for three consecutive months).
In the post mentioned above, a reader left a comment with some very important information. It might even help prevent you from not receiving the bonus even when you think you’ve earned it! Continue reading Important Tip For Barclays Credit Card Bonus Offers
