Barclaycard miles are earned with Barclays Arrival credit cards. Once you have earned the miles, how do you then use the miles for free travel? The options are listed below. Also click here to see how I used mine for free travel in Colorado Springs, within Hawaii, in Vegas and in Cooperstown, NY.
Book the travel you want with your Barclaycard Arrival Plus card and then choose any travel purchase within the last 120 days and redeem your miles for a travel statement credit toward all or a portion of your travel purchases. Note, you can only redeem against a transaction one time.
Redemptions start at 10,000 miles for $100, toward travel purchases made within the last 120 days. Once you redeem your miles for a travel statement credit, the credit will be posted to your Account within 5 to 7 business days.
A travel purchase is defined as: airlines, hotels, motels, timeshares, campgrounds, car rental agencies, cruise lines, travel agencies, discount travel sites, trains, buses, taxis, limousines, and ferries as defined by the merchant category code.
GET 5% OF YOUR MILES BACK every time you redeem for travel statement credits. So for example, if you redeem 60,000 miles you get 3,000 miles back. Travel redemption bonus miles are added to your account within one business day after your travel redemption is processed.
