Barclay Offers TripIt Pro Benefit for Arrival Cardholders
As we know, Barclay recently stripped some benefits on the Arrival Plus card. Besides for lowering the redemption bonus from 10% to 5% (today is last day to get the higher amount!), they also stripped the free $49 TripIt Pro benefit.
Cardholders are now receiving an email offering them this benefit for a year. Must enroll my 12/16/15.
It’s not clear that they are offering this as a permanent benefit. I’m going to guess that they are just trying to ease the transition period by offering a one-year benefit and that it won’t be offered again next year.
Also note that while the email mentions ‘new Barclaycard Arrival Plus cardmembers’, the email is being sent apparently to all cardmembers and signing up works to get the free subscription for everyone. The email seems to be sent out in batches; some may not have gotten it yet, but likely everyone will get it eventually.
