Barclays Arrival® Premier World Elite Mastercard®

The Barclays Arrival Premier World Elite Mastercard is a mid-level travel credit card, designed to be used for all kinds of travel spending. Rather than providing rewards with a particular airline or hotel, you’ll get 2X miles per dollar for every purchase you make.

Rather than having a signup bonus you can only get once, this card lets you earn bonus miles every year. You’ll get 15,000 bonus miles by spending $15,000 in a given year, and another 10,000 bonus miles for spending another $10,000. So that’s a total of 25,000 bonus miles for spending $25,000.

You can redeem your miles for statement credits at a value of 1 cent per mile. Or you can transfer them to a participating loyalty partner, where you might get a better value for them.

Cardholders get Mastercard Airport Experiences through Lounge Key, providing access to 800 airport lounges worldwide. There’s a $100 credit for Global Entry, providing expedited processing through airports. And the card also comes with World Elite Mastercard benefits, including a concierge service and shopping/travel protections.

What a JOKE! Points +Annual Fee + All Other Fee

Had to pay DOUBLE points for a few hours flight because when I hit the back button when booking my flight! Customer svc Rep Marion told me that I should look for off hour flights & sometimes it's cheaper to NOT use points & just pay for a flight. What is the sense of earning points if you can't use them unless they charge you double points? Then told me if I wasn't happy to find another credit card company! Talk about RUDE! I paid $89/yr annual fee, then I had to buy points which cost $220, a processing fee $30 + $11 .40 booking fee! I had to have 70K points to fly from Philadelphia to Nashville round-trip ... WHAT A RIP OFF of my money & TIME (1 hour) WAITING on the phone to first talk to Romero who couldn't help me & then to Marion who was a real JERK ... NO customer service skills AT ALL! I am so DONE with this company & AMERICAN AIRLINES!
