Can I Earn the Barclaycard Arrival Plus Bonus Again?

Million Mile Secrets reader, Amber, commented:

I have had the Barclaycard Arrival Plus before.  I closed it early last year.

I’m considering applying for it again, but the terms say the bonus offer is valid for first-time cardmembers with new accounts only.  Existing cardmembers and existing accounts are not eligible for this offer.  Does that mean I will not be able to get the 50,000 points since I had the card before?

Great question, Amber!

In practice, you can earn the bonus that comes with the Barclaycard Arrival Plus more than once.  But the terms and conditions definitely give Barclaycard the right to not give you the bonus!

I’ll tell you what we know about being approved for the Barclaycard Arrival Plus bonus more than once.
