For us as Delta flyers we seem to be used to only getting bad news and when we hear the word “enhancement” we know something bad is on the way. This just is NOT the case when it comes to the Barclay’s Arrival+ card. Their enhancements are just that – huge improvements to an already outstanding product.
I called yesterday to request my Chip-N-Pin card but what most impresses me is the change from 90 to 120 days to redeem your points. Stunning. You can now pay for even more travel items and have up to the better part of 4 months to earn the points to pay for that charge.
Plus, as you can see from the above, getting 4x from buying AMEX gift cards takes only a little over a month to post (sometimes up to 8 weeks). But no problem with the 120 day new redeem rules. How sweet is that.
For us as Delta flyers we can either use an Arrival card or another card like a Delta AMEX and still earn the 4x and then the points on whatever card we use for payment. It does not get much better and I love using these points to buy mileage runs as well as hotel rooms.
But this is SWAG Saturday right? (Rules HERE btw). You bet it is. So how about this, for a chance to win this very nice silver color men’s Impulse Steinhausen Dual time zone watch tell me what your favorite feature of the Barclays Arrival card is and I will then use Random.org to pick the winner Sunday night! – René
