Updated 5:15am PT on 1/29: I uploaded an image of the letter I received from my retention call to Barclays. Scroll down to the bottom of the post for more info.
Good morning everyone, another day, another blog post about free money from Barclays. On Monday, I wrote a blog post regarding a $10 statement credit I received from Barclays for adding an authorized user to my Barclays Arrival Plus Credit Card. Yesterday, I called Barclays about my Barclays JetBlue Plus Credit Card. The $99 annual fee posted a few days ago, so I called Barclays to see if there were any retention offers available. I haven’t put much spend on the credit card since meeting the minimum spend but I have racked up thousands of JetBlue TrueBlue points with Amazon.
The first offer I received was for half the annual fee to be waived ($49.50). That was pretty good, but then I asked if there were any other offers available. Yes, she could also tack on a targeted spending offer to get 5,000 bonus JetBlue TrueBlue points for spending $1,000 in the next 90 days. Sold! I accepted that offer. The $49.50 statement credit posted to my account the next day.
I already received the 5,000 anniversary JetBlue TrueBlue points from the Barclays JetBlue Plus Credit Card, so another 5,000 bonus JetBlue TrueBlue points will be a nice bonus.
Have you received a similar or different retention offer on your Barclays JetBlue Plus Credit Card? Let me know. If you have any questions, please leave a comment below. Have a great day everyone!
P.S. Here is the targeted spending offer that resulted from my retention call:
