points can be used for the AF.

Statement credits: If you have the exact number of points or more required to wipe away a charge, you can wipe away the entire charge.  If you have fewer than the exact number of points, you can only redeem in 2500 point/$25 increments.

Example: If you have an $87 charge, and 9000 points, you can wipe away the entire $87 charge.  If, however, you only have 8000 points, you can only wipe away $75 worth of the $87 charge (2500 point/$25 increments x 3).

Re: $400 Bonus and 2.2% Back with Barclaycard Arrival

I asked this on a new thread, but realized it should have gone here.  So here goes.

I have a second Barclays card with a $25k limit.  They won't waive the $89 fee, at least not when I asked via SM and I don't think they will downgrade.  Does it pay to keep it for the line?  I have the same issue with an SPG.

Thanks.

open a new card and use the old line as leverage

Why would a new issuer care about my line elsewhere?

There are some data points of delta working and some that don't - best bet is buy a ticket and refund next day, but within 24 hours, and hope it posts. But why mess around? Southwest anytime ALWAYS posts and works for everyone.

if I buy a delta ticket to cash out my points how long after can I cancel the ticket do I have to wait till it post ?

if yes how do I know which tickets are refundable ?

do I have to buy EC seats or the tickets is good enough for the credit . did it before just forget how to do it ?

how can I redeem for travel if I didn't have any travel expenses?

Does Barclay's allow churning on this card? (Back story: Barclay's closed down my card after req spend, so I lost 46k points, I want to know if I can reapply, get new points and huca to try and recover the old points. Being that the reason given for the old points loss was that I don't have an active account...)

Long story short, missed a payment, they "reevaluated my credit profile" and decided I was a credit risk

Bonus is 50k points now. Not sure if Dan has links for this directly or not, but probably worth waiting till he comments!

This is good. Locked out of Amex for most part, over 5/24 for chase, and not preapproved in bank. At least something is left!

A few years ago they matched me to the increased US Airways offer (40 --> 50 was it?), but I had to call it in and request a supervisor.

My DW opened the Arrival+ in July. Trying to match via SM, and then call if not.
