One of These (Many!) Targeted Offers Is Worth ~$140 in JetBlue Flights

Yesterday I told you about a few targeted spending bonuses that were being offered on various Barclaycard cards, like the Arrival Plus and JetBlue Plus cards.

And now, folks have reported receiving offers on other cards too!  Including cards issued by Chase, like the Chase IHG and Chase Hyatt card.  And a different (but great!) offer on the Barclaycard JetBlue Plus card.

So it’s worth checking your email, spam, and snail mail to see if you qualify for any of these deals.

Most of these offers are 2nd quarter promotions, so the spending requirement will likely run from April 1, 2017, through June 30, 2017.  And most of the offers require activating your card, but there are a few exceptions!

The 10,000 JetBlue Points You Can Earn With One of These Targeted Offers Is Worth ~$140 in JetBlue Flights to Awesome Destinations Like San Juan, Puerto Rico

I’ll share more about these targeted offers.  And help you decide whether they make sense for you.

5 Best Barclaycard Offers

Considering the best-ever offer on the Barclaycard Arrival Plus card?  Don’t forget, you can usually only get 1 or 2 Barclaycards per year, so it’s worth comparing a few different Barclaycard cards, to make sure you’re getting the cards that make most sense for you.

For example, if you’re looking for flexibility, the Barclaycard Arrival Plus card is likely your best option.  But if JetBlue flies from your home airport, you might consider 1 of the Barclaycard JetBlue cards.  Or if you want to earn hotel points, you could apply for the Barclaycard Wyndham Rewards card.

You have options!

Can I Earn the Sign-Up Bonus If I Previously Held the Card but Didn’t Earn the Bonus?

Million Mile Secrets Reader Tom commented:

Last time I signed up for a credit card, I didn’t get the sign-up bonus because I didn’t meet the minimum spending requirement.  I cancelled it last year.  If I sign-up again, can I qualify for the bonus?

That’s an interesting question, Tom!

The answer really depends on which BANK issued your credit card.  Different banks have different Terms & Conditions for receiving the bonus.

For example, you are only eligible for sign-up bonuses of American Express once per lifetime, but Barclaycard credit cards have no such rules!

It’s easy to accidentally apply for the wrong credit card.  Card names can sound strikingly similar!

Which Miles & Points Should You Collect for Award Flights?

Million Mile Secrets reader Alex writes:

I was wondering if you can give me advice on choosing the right credit card.  I already have a Miles & More (Lufthansa) account and ~30,000 miles or so in there.

I’m located in Miami and I try to stick to Lufthansa or Star Alliance partners as my preferred airlines.  I fly at least 2 times a year to Europe or Asia but also make some trips within the US.

Great question, Alex!  It can be hard to decide which miles & points to collect for your trip, especially if you’re new to our hobby.

If you already have an idea of where & how you want to travel and which airlines or alliances you prefer, you can narrow down your choices of which credit cards to apply for.

And knowing which airlines serve your home airport will help a great deal in making a decision!
