Barclaycard is ramping up its online forum for travel tips and advice at www.BarclaycardTravel.com. They want it to grow fast and to do it they’re offering a first…
Bonus points that can link directly to your Barclaycard Arrival card just for creating an online forum profile and posting a story about a recent trip you have taken.
The Barclaycard Arrival is a card that earns double miles on all spending, and you can use them for any travel purchases with any airline or hotel, much like the popular Venture Card from Capital One you see on TV.
With this new community you can earn…
500 points for completing a profile that includes the following information:
Then, you get 200 points for EACH travel story you post on the forum. Each travel story must include at least 1 photo to upload and good detail on the trip.
If you’ve done a lot of travel…this is a great way to rack up Arrival points. Just 10 stories can net you 2,000 points. There is no explicit limit in the terms and conditions.
On top of that, you get 10 points for each time someone ‘kudos’ your story. So get your friends to join the forum and ‘kudo’ your stories for even more points.
While there is no explicit limit on the number of points you can earn this way, clearly they’re going to keep an eye on excessive, low quality posts and have the right to not award you points at any time.
And you DON’T have to be an Arrival card holder to earn points. If you don’t want to link up your account you can still earn rewards. Anyone can get a $5 Amazon e-certificate for every 2,500 points earned.
Of course the better deal is to have an Arrival Card, because every 2,500 points earned when you hold a card is worth $25 toward travel purchases.
