I would like to apply for the credit card affiliated to the Star Alliance group. I travel several times a year to some Scandinavian countries and also to Latin America. I always travel with SAS and Copa or Taca. I need to have a credit card affiliated with the Star Alliance to gain miles, not only when I travel but also when I buy groceries, gas, etc. Will I be able to pay these kinds of things with the Barclaycard Arrival credit card?
