Travel Giveaway: $440 Airline Gift Certificate

Yesterday I wrote about the newest product from Barclaycard called the Barclaycard Arrival Plus World Elite MasterCard which replaces the Arrival World MasterCard. The new card has the same features as its predecessor, plus a few added and extended benefits to make the new card even more attractive. The card features the EMV Chip + PIN technology that I wrote about this morning. One of the best perks of the card are expanded travel statement credit redemption options which include buses, timeshares, and campground. Not to mention it’s a nice looking facelift to the card itself.

The Arrival Plus now comes with a Smart Chip.

So to celebrate these expanded categories, for today’s reader giveaway, we want to offer $440 in gift certificates to the airline of your choice from the following options:

  • American Airlines
  • Alaska Airways
  • JetBlue
  • Delta
  • Frontier
  • United
  • Virgin America
  • Southwest

The signup bonus for the Barclaycard Arrival Plus World Elite MasterCard is 40,000 bonus miles, which is equivalent to $440 when redeemed for travel. Getting this card is already like a $440 credit in your wallet, so I want to tell you what you would use this $440 gift certificate for. Perhaps to fly to Seattle, like I did last week on Alaska Airlines? Maybe you’ve been wanting to visit the Smithsonian in DC to see Julia Child’s Kitchen?
