Travelers and savers, take note — the Barclaycard Arrival Plus® World Elite Mastercard® has a new introductory bonus. This bonus is the highest ever offered on the card, and it’s flexible enough to benefit both frequent and less-frequent travelers.

New Barclaycard Arrival Plus cardmembers are now eligible to earn 70,000 bonus miles after spending $5,000 on purchases in the first 90 days. Those bonus miles are worth $700 when redeemed for travel expenses — but you can also turn those miles into cash back statement credits as well as gift cards, merchandise, and more.

“Since cardmembers can redeem their miles for travel or cash back statement credits, there has never been a better time to apply for the Arrival Plus card,” says Rachana Bhatt, Managing Director at Barclays.

Here are some of the other benefits Barclaycard Arrival Plus cardholders will receive:

  • Unlimited 2x miles per dollar on every purchase
  • 5% miles back every time you redeem, to use towards your next redemption
  • Earn additional miles by sharing travel stories in the new mobile-friendly Barclays Travel Community
  • International chip-and-PIN capability

The Barclaycard Arrival Plus’s chip-and-PIN capability is rare among even the best travel credit cards, and is just one more way this card’s flexibility makes it ideal for both overseas travelers and people who are looking to earn high-level rewards — especially now that Barclaycard has updated the card’s bonus offer.
