Then a few days ago Barclay upped their offer to 60k. SAY WHAT?! That’s one bad mammajamma of an offer. 60k sweet, sweet, Aadvantage miles for just a single purchase. There was no way I was missing out on that deal, especially because I hadn’t even received my card, let alone activate and make a purchase. Well, yesterday, I received my card, and instead of activating it, I called the number on the back for customer relations. I spoke with a rep and told him my situation, and was hoping to get matched to the new 60k offer with the same terms as my 50k offer. He said that seemed pretty logical, and filled out some paperwork to submit it on up the chain. He didn’t foresee any problems and said that I should receive paperwork in the next 7-10 business days confirming I had been matched to the new 60k offer. If you’re in a similar situation, in fact I’d say if you applied in the last 90 days, I’d HIGHLY recommend trying to match to the Barclay Aviator Red 60k offer as well.
Can’t wait to redeem some miles for Japan Airlines First Class. 80k from the states to Tokyo.
