At Last, Premier Global Travel Card With Rewards That Last

Community Manager





We’re excited to announce the launch of the Barclays Arrival® Premier World Elite Mastercard®. It’s a credit card that changes the game by rewarding loyalty each year as opposed to providing a one-time bonus, making your rewards last. 


Arrival Premier cardmembers will earn unlimited 2X miles on all purchases. Better yet, they’re eligible for loyalty bonus miles awarded based on the amount of spend on purchases per cardmember year. A unique card that offers year-after-year loyalty bonuses!1 


So how do loyalty bonuses work? Spending $15,000 on purchases each cardmembership year earns 15,000 loyalty bonus miles. Spending an additional $10,000 on purchases earns 10,000 loyalty bonus miles on top of that. When you add it all together with 2X miles on all purchases, cardmembers earn 75,000 total miles after spending $25,000 each cardmembership year. The earning doesn’t stop there. Cardmembers will continue earning unlimited 2X miles on every purchase. 


Plus, there’s so much more that makes Arrival Premier THE premier global travel card. It offers benefits every world traveler needs, like one Global Entry application fee credit every five years and Mastercard Airport Experiences provided by LoungeKey. Personally, I hate how frustrating it can be waiting to clear customs after a trip abroad, which is why the $100 automatic statement credit for the cost of one Global Entry application fee is so useful. And with a pay as you go LoungeKey membership, you’ll have access to more than 800 lounges in 120+ countries around the world, making for a much more relaxing layover!2

For world explorers interested in redemption options beyond travel statement credits, Arrival Premier has you covered because it is Barclays’ first credit card to offer miles transfer. And, the card offers chip-and-PIN capability and no foreign transaction fees3, which is perfect for all your international purchases.


Wouldn’t you agree it’s about time you have a card that benefits you in the long run – not just during year one? 






1 Earning Miles: Cardmembers will earn 2X miles for every one dollar ($1) spent on purchases less credits, returns and adjustments ("Net Purchases"). See Terms and Conditions for details.

Loyalty Bonus: You can earn a maximum of 25,000 loyalty bonus miles after spending $25,000 in Net Purchases during each 12 month period ("Loyalty Bonus") through and including your account anniversary date ("Cardmembership Year"). You will earn 15,000 Loyalty Bonus miles after spending $15,000 in Net Purchases during each Cardmembership Year. You will earn an additional 10,000 Loyalty Bonus miles after spending an additional $10,000 in Net Purchases during each Cardmembership Year (for a total of 25,000 miles after $25,000 in total Net Purchases). Loyalty Bonus miles earned are in addition to the 2 miles earned for every $1 spent on Net Purchases on the account and count towards the primary cardmember's Loyalty Bonus total Net Purchases. Net Purchases made by authorized users on the account will count toward the primary cardmember's Loyalty Bonus total Net Purchases. See Terms and Conditions for details.
