Update: the current spending requirement on all application methods is now $3,000.

The minimum spend on the Barclaycard Arrival Plus™ World Elite MasterCard® increased to $3,000 in 90 days yesterday when applied for online, BUT you may still be able to get the older offer with the lower $1,000 spend requirement by applying over the phone.

All of the online applications have updated to the new $3,000 minimum spending requirement, but as of publishing this post, you may still be able to apply for the older – lower $1,000 spending requirement by calling Barclays at 800-307-0341.

I double checked by calling in and was offered by the representative the 40,000 mile offer after spending $1,000 in 90 days. But, If you’re thinking about applying for the card, I suggest doing it soon and over the phone since this may change at any time. There may just be a lapse in the changes between the online and phone application systems.

I earn a referral if you apply for the Barclaycard Arrival Plus™ World Elite MasterCard® using my links, but it’s a better deal to call in and apply over the phone. Be sure to confirm the offer 40,000 mile offer details with the representative over the phone when you apply!


If you apply online for the 40,000 Barclaycard Arrival Plus™ World Elite MasterCard® the minimum spending requirement has already changed to $3,000, BUT you can still call and apply over the phone to get the prior $1,000 minimum spend offer.

Call Barclays at 800-307-0341 and be sure to confirm the offer details. Who knows how long this offer will stay live for phone applications, so I’d apply soon if you’re thinking about getting the card.

Let us know in the comments if you were able to get the 40,000 offer over the phone!
