Link:   How the changes to the Barclaycard Arrival card help you  

You earn 2X Barclaycard Arrival points (“miles”) on every purchase with the Barclaycard Arrival.  The “miles” you earn are actually points that can be used as a statement credit.  You can NOT transfer Barclaycard Arrival “miles” to airlines.

When you redeem those points for statement credits, you get 1% back.  But you get 2.1% back when you redeem for travel expenses.

Note:   You have to redeem a minimum of $100.

Folks may have been getting confused on how to use their Barclaycard Arrival points so Barclaycard created this short video.


Bottom Line

You can redeem your Barclaycard Arrival points for travel expenses and get 2.1% back.  However, if you redeem for statement credits on regular purchases you only get 1% back.

This is an easy way to get 2.1% back on $100+ travel expenses like cruises, hotels, flights, taxis, campgrounds, and more!

  1. Here is an experience I dont know if it has been written but I dont see it mention by MMS or in the video. my assumption is that current charges can be redeem immediately, say a few days after the charge is made but the reality is you must pay for the current charges at end of statement and then redeem credit on the following statement. its not like Discover card where the cash back balance can be apply immediately to your statement without cash out first.
