This post may seem a bit elementary to you, but the objective here is to show you how easy it is for you to use the points that you’ve recently banked from picking up the Barclaycard Arrival Plus credit card. Once you meet the spending requirement you’ll have over 40,000 points to redeem for your travel expenses.
Check out this list of some of the best places that you can use the points from the Barclaycard Arrival. If you’re a romantic trying to score some points with your sweetheart, read up on Brad’s post about how you can use the points from the Barclaycard Arrival for some hotels that you’ll never forget.
It’s kinda like an indulgence without a cost. You know that you shouldn’t be spending $106 to visit the Kennedy Space Center, but it feels so good in the moment. You just log in to your Barclaycardus.com account and make the purchase disappear. Man, if real repenting in life was only this easy!
Steps to Using Your BarclayCard Arrival Plus
First you’ll need to log in to your Barclaycard account by going to www.barclaycardus.com. It should look something like this when you go to the website.
Next you’ll want to Click on “Manage Rewards” which is found on the right hand side of the page. (see below)
From there you’ll want to click on “Travel Statement Credits.” It has the picture of
paradise, heaven, umm maybe bliss… Well, you get the picture.
- Minimum purchase price is $25
- Must be redeemed within 120 days of the expenditure
- Purchase must meet the requirement of being a travel-related expense.
- You must use the points for an awesome unforgettable trip to somewhere completely awesome.
Next you’ll see a list of travel related expenses for which you can redeem your ridiculously awesome Barclaycard Arrival Plus points.
In my case I had 34,174 points in my account before completing this redemption. I wanted to use some of my points for the tickets that I purchased to see the Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida. Wait a minute, yeah you heard me right. I totally used the Barclaycard to cover the entrance to see some awesome exhibits about rockets, history, and space. Yeah. Why don’t you have this card again?
I chose “Redeem Now” from the above screen, which brought me to my shopping card of free stuff. They show you how many miles you have, how many you’re redeeming, and what you’ll have left for your next trip.
Now that I used 10,600 points for an trip to space, (the closest I’ll get to space for a little while) the kickback dropped back in my account. Once I’ve erased the $106 entrance fee to the Kennedy Space Center you’ll see a credit on your credit card account for the amount of $106.
Now I’m back to the drawing board. I’ve still got roughly $250 on this card and once I meet the spending requirement on my newly acquired Arrival Plus I’ll have almost $700 in purchases to erase. It’s really that simple. Once you’ve made the travel expense you can go in and erase the expense from your history.
