Wow! Amazing Barclays spending offers via email

62

I feel like I have used the word amazing more this week than I have in months, but what a week it as been. As if there hasn’t been enough surprising news on the credit card front this week, Barclays has sent out emails to many cardholders with amazing targeted spending offers. We’re talking offers like 60,000 miles for $3K spend — for existing cardholders. These aren’t new card offers but rather incentives to spend and they are coming in on many different cards (including the AAdvantage Aviator, JetBlue cards, Arrival+, Wyndham Rewards, etc). Keep an eye on your email for one of these offers!

    • 50K additional bonus miles for $3K total spend from 11/20/20 to 1/31/21
      • We have received reports of this offer on the following cards so far (wouldn’t be surprised to hear of it being on more cards)

  • The extra 3x offer required registration

Quick Thoughts

This is amazing. These are offers you would expect for a new credit card application, but they are being sent to existing cardholders and the offers for 60K points/miles say that they do not require registration. That’s nuts.

We’ve had a multitude of reports of this in our Frequent Miler Insiders Facebook group. Some cardholders have not received any email, but many have — so it is well worth checking your email. Many of those who have received this offers report the cards having been sock-drawered without use for some time. I certainly regret having my wife close her Aviator card a couple of months ago now!

If you have any of these cards and receive an offer like this, I definitely recommend meeting the full $3K spend as it is like earning 20 points per dollar — that’s hard to beat outside of a new credit card application.

Let us know in the comments if you have received this offer on any additional cards and/or if you have received a different offer.
