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?

Answered on

The Barclaycard Arrival Plus™ World Elite MasterCard® will allow you redeem miles towards any airline including those in Star Alliance. The miles earned are redeemable for travel statement credits and redemption starts at 10,000 miles for $100 towards a qualifying travel purchase. Miles can also be redeemed for cash and gift cards and redemptions start at 5,000 miles for $25.
To earn miles with the Arrival Plus card, you simply need to shop as you always do. The card earns two miles per dollar spent on purchases. Also, there is a sign-up bonus of 40,000 miles which you can get after spending $3,000 on purchases in the first 90 days of account opening.
The card has a chip and a Mastercard logo on it which guarantees acceptance in European and other countries.
