COMING SOON TO A MAILBOX NEAR YOU?: Courtesy of Frequent Miler, we learn that there is apparently an invitation-only 40,000 point sign-up bonus for the Barclaycard Arrival World Mastercard. The best public offer is 20,000 points, which is twice the offer we received in the mail last week, so nuts to you, Barclays. Keep your eyes open, as sometimes it does pay to open junk mail from banks. A 40,000-point bonus would put this card on par with the Chase Sapphire, though Chase still has the superior product as its points can be transferred to frequent flyer programs for values in excess of one cent per point.
CHANGING OF THE GUARD AT DISCOVER: Rapid Travel Chai lets us know that effective January 2 Discover is discontinuing its old lineup of cards in favor of the Discover “it” Card. It is therefore a good time to get a Discover card if you don’t already have one, as there’s a $200 bonus available with their cardbuilder tool.
NFL/NCAA APPAREL ON SALE: The normally high prices are somewhat reasonable now on Amazon. More info on Slickdeals.
