BarclayCard offering Triple AAdvantage miles (Targeted)
Barclay card sends out promotions all the time. Earlier this year, they ran a promotion offering up to 45,000 miles if I just used my card for $2500 in purchases a month. It was a pretty good promotion, and we made sure to use it to our advantage. I haven’t seen any credit card company send out as many promotions as they do, probably because they’re trying to compete with Citi and their AA card offers.
We just checked the mail last night and saw this surprise offer from Barclaycard for some last quarter spending. It’s not a bad deal, and we might actually shift some of our spending to take advantage. I also see some big spend opportunities!
Earn 2x additional miles per dollar, up to 2,500 miles on grocery store, department, toy game store, and restaurant purchases from October 1st to December 31st, 2016. You can earn 2,500 additional miles, so that’s 3x on all purchases for the last months of the year.
While Chase’s Sapphire Reserve card is offering 3x on Restaurants all the time, there isn’t an offer out there for department, game, toy, or grocery stores, so I always take a look for bonus miles opportunities. With Black Friday and the holiday season coming up, this is a great opportunity to rack up a few extra miles for doing what I was going to normally do during the course of my day.
I only got one offer in the mail, but I have two cards. When I called to register, it turns out that my other card WAS included in the offer, so I had the agent enroll both my cards. She said that this was a targeted offer and not everyone was going to be eligible for the offer.
To check to see if your Aviator card is eligible, just call 1-866-928-3075 and see if you’re one of the lucky ones.
