Arrival Plus Increases Bonus to 50,000 Miles

 

For a limited time, the Barclaycard Arrival Plus comes with 50,000 bonus Arrival miles after spending $3,000 on purchases in the first 90 days. The old bonus was 40,000 points.

The card earns 2 miles per dollar on all purchases. You can redeem the miles to offset any travel expense greater than $100 inside your Barclaycard account within 120 days of the purchase.

Will Arrival Plus Sign Up Bonus Increase to 50,000 Miles?

I don't see the Barclaycard Arrival Plus™ World Elite MasterCard® and the Chase Sapphire Preferred as similar cards at all.

The Arrival Plus earns bank points that can be redeemed like cash toward any flight or other travel expense at a rate of just over 1 cents each.
The Sapphire Preferred earns transferable points that can be transferred to ten types of airline miles and hotel points (or used liked cash toward any flight, but that's a bad deal with Ultimate Rewards.)

But I know that Barclaycard sees the two cards as competitors.
