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).

If I have 500K, can I redeem for a part of a charge that is $6,000? In other words, can I get credit for $5,000? Or must the charge be less than the amount of points I have?
Yes it can be for less than the full charge.

Yup. Got a big goose egg when I called this morning. And I put a decent amount of spending on this card, too.

"sorry, sir, we can't do anything about the annual fee because that allows us to give you the great rewards and benefits of the card."

"oh, you mean the great rewards and benefits that you cut by 50%?"

*crickets*
Got the same answer for the aviator silver card. Tweeted last year worked but not this year.

What can you downgrade these cards to with no af? What do you get from the af free cards?

I have an Arrival and an Arrival Plus. I thought the points would show up in the same points account, but they are separated by each card. Is there any way to combine them so I could close the Arrival without losing the points?

I recently booked a flight from NY to Manchester using my Arrival+, kind of screwed up and booked it on Shavuos. t's an Iceland Air flight booked through StudentUniverse (just for the record) , any ideas on how I can change the flight without the $250 fee that StudentUniverse is demanding? Besides for hucaing, which I'm in middle of, does the Arrival + have some kind of insurance that would cover this?

Hope for a schedule change. No.

Part of an email I got:

"To continue to provide this best-in-class travel rewards product and to simplify its structure, we'll be making the following changes, effective August 16, 2016:

Redemption bonus changes
The bonus miles you receive when you redeem for travel statement credits will be reduced to 5% miles back. At the same time, we’ll expand the 5% miles back to ALL redemptions — including travel and cash back statement credits, gift cards and merchandise. That means, every time you redeem miles, you’ll get 5% of your miles back to use toward your next redemption (for example, redeem 20,000 miles and get 1,000 miles back)."

undercover tourist. $30 off $150. Good reliable place to buy disney world tickets. I used them recently, but I used my barclay arrival + card to purchase the park tickets. Since they are a discount site you can use your points to cover it as a "travel expense"
can anyone confirm that undercover tourist is still considered a travel expense on barclay?
