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.)
Once I received my Barclaycard Arrival Plus card I made it my go-to credit card. Besides continuing to use my Ink card at office supply stores and for cable/ cellphone bills, everything I charged went to the Arrival.
I completed the $3,000 minimum spend some time in early December. However, I received an odd e-mail on December 23 reminding me that my new account bonus was about to expire. Now I’m definitely assuming that this is an automated message and I knew I completed my spend but I still checked my account to play it safe!
Then, on January 4 my 50,000 miles bonus finally posted to my account along with some miles earned for using my Barclaycard Arrival Plus.
Being a bit tardy with e-mail alerts, I received a message from Barclays with a message of “Congratulations, you’ve earned you bonus!” on January 6.
The message also let me know that my 50,000 miles would appear on my next credit card billing statement.
I do appreciate the e-mail notifications but how about trying to send out these details ASAP! Is that too much to ask?
No, I’m not serious but I do look forward to using the miles from my Barclaycard Arrival Plus for a future trip!
