You Can Use Your Barclays Arrival Cash Back to Pay Off Your Subway Charges (New Yorkers)

The Barclays Arrival (as has been written a billion times) allows you to use your cash back to pay for travel that you’ve booked. They define travel as “Airlines, Travel Agencies & Tour Operators, Hotels, Motels & Resorts, Cruise Lines, Passenger Railways and Car Rental Agencies.”

I’ve been burned by this before, oddly enough, when I booked a bus trip (bus trip?) and it turns out I couldn’t use my points to pay for it. Oops.

Anyway, you New Yorkers may be interested to know that I have been able to pay for Metrocards with Barclays points – that’s a nice little benefit that I wasn’t aware of.

  1. Maybe the NYC subway system should partner with Barclays and have billboards hanging up at the exits. Free metro pass, only with the Arrival Car. Sign up today!

  2. I thought we were supposed to use our Chase Sapphire Preferred on the subway and earn 2x points per dollar.
