Barclay's reconsideration: 866-408-4064 8AM - 5PM EST



To get cash: purchase travel related gift cards from the specific company and sell online for cash.

From the Terms and Conditions:
You can use your miles to: (a) “pay for travel” (Airlines, Travel Agencies & Tour Operators, Hotels, Motels & Resorts, Cruise Lines, Passenger Railways and Car Rental Agencies) purchases made within the last 90 days as a statement credit, (b) redeem for cash back as a statement credit, (c) redeem for gift cards or (d) redeem for merchandise.
If you redeem your miles as a statement credit on your eligible Barclaycard Arrival MasterCard account, the credit will be posted to your account within five to seven (5-7) business days. Statement credits reduce your account balance but cannot be applied toward any minimum payment and are otherwise subject to the terms and conditions applicable to your Barclaycard Arrival MasterCard account.

TripIt Pro membership is $49/yr value



BE ADVISED. STATEMENT CREDIT IS ONLY $200 if not for travel.

I am using chrome. I keep getting this message - Please read the Barclaycard Arrival Credit Card Rewards Program Rules and Terms and Conditions for important information about rates, fees, benefits, restrictions, limitations, and other costs before applying. This is a secure application for the Barclaycard Arrival MasterCard.

I read it. Do I need to check a box? I do not see it.

Just some data for others considering, I was rejected for this card (a rare occurance) after calling the reconsideration line. They rejected me based on my short history with them (just got US air card in January) and the large number of recent credit card applications. The guy mentioned 10, which means it goes back past the current 90 day window, but less than 6 months. I'm a pretty good BSer, but it was hard to come up with a satisfactory answer for why I've opened up 10 new credit cards lately.

He also remarked I wasn't using the line of credit recently given to me too much (US air card). True true, perhaps I could have offered to put some artificial spend on the card.

It's annoying, but you got to at least respect them for being able to figure out the obvious, which nobody else seems to do.

10 inquiries in the last 6 months is a little steep.

Well it's more than 10, and it's less 4 months, but that's all he knew about. I got cards from chase, amex, and citi in the same round of applications, so clearly barclay looks at things a bit closer.

you are wrong...cashback conversion is $400 and travel conversion adds up 10% bonus to $460...
Anybody with this card can summarize what you can get with the 40,000 points other than using it for travel purchase?

With regards to redemption can I book a $900 hotel stay and take the $440 off when the points come in or do I have to break it up for a $440 hotel stay and a $460 hotel stay? TIA.

bumping a old thread....while this is not the best of the deals, i did got ahead and apply as i have a few international trips coming up. Right now all my credit cards have a foreign transaction fee.

about $450 cashback on travel purchases+no foreign transaction fee is a decent deal PLUS 2x points on all purchases may be good for any visa prepaid card deals.....

FYI,,.my creditkarma score is over 770, still did not get instant approval....called the reconsideration line, she asked me about my recent chase credit card applications lol i told her its an amazon card and good for my amazon purchases. She went ahead and approved my application.

So far this year my NFL card $400 cash back, this one is worth $500 to me....not a bad start with Barclays creditcards...

I can never get ANYTHING with Barclays. It's either I always catch them at the end of my churn schedule, or reconsideration dept. never budges for me. Frown

Already got declined on the 40K US airways card about 2 weeks ago..so there's no point in trying for this one probably huh?

Same thing with me!!!!!!!! Credit score in the 850's had a Frontier Airlines card for many years and just got the NFL Dolphins card in November 2012. Then applied for the US Airways and got turned down! Now I have had this happen with Chase before but I just give them a call and they move around some of my credit limits and I then get approved. But no.... Barclay said "I have sufficient credit lines" with them. WTF????

I said fine and promplty cancelled by Frontier and NFL Dolphins. Barclay sux!

Same here with my wife. She'd never been declined by any other bank before, but three times that she applied for a Barclay card, all declined. On the other hand, all of the three times I applied (2 NFL cards for 40,000 points and this card), I got approved. And the reason for it was that she has too many accounts opened. And I actually have many more accounts than she does. Her score in the declined letter from Trans Union is 733, BTW. Called them and they still said no.

For those in need of some cash (or travel expenses), creditcards.com has the Barclay's Arrival card which gives a 40,000 "mile" bonus after spending only $1,000. You can use this to cover travel charges at one mile for 1 cent, which is $400 or you can do the following for cash.

1. Buy a $400 travel related physical gift card straight from the company the gift card is for with your Arrival card and have it shipped to you (usually free). I recommend Southwest Airlines or American Airlines because they have the highest resale value.
2. Go to cardsnagger.com and sell the gift card for $340 or $336 in cash. Have them direct deposit the cash in your account.
3. $400 charge will show up in your barclays account as eligible to be covered by the points. Use the points to pay for the charge.

Sorry if this is complicated, I have this card but really wanted the cash so did some research to find the best way.

Forgot to say - annual fee is waived first year, so cash out your points and cancel before renewal date so you don't have to pay annual fee. Or you could probably downgrade to no annual fee arrival card if you think it worth keeping.

Please see screenshots of current payouts for gift cards on cardsnagger.

Thanks!
