(Update 5/14/14: The card has been rebranded as the Barclaycard Arrival Plus World Elite MasterCard.)
The Barclaycard Arrival World MasterCard comes with 40,000 bonus miles when you make $3,000 in purchases during the first 90 days of account membership. Since every 100 miles is worth $1, the introductory bonus is equivalent to $400 off your next trip.
Barclaycard allows cardmembers to redeem their miles retroactively as statement credits. Additionally, cardmembers get 10% miles back when they redeem the miles for travel purchases, including airlines, hotels, travel packages, cruises, passenger railways and car rentals. Effectively, the bonus offer is worth 44,000 miles ($440).
Noteworthy card features:
- $89 annual fee, waived for the first year
- Earn 2 miles per dollar on all purchases
- Get 10% miles back when you redeem for travel
- No foreign transaction fees
