I previously wrote a post called Keep Vs. Cancel: AAdvantage Aviator. There, I stated that Barclays waived the annual fee and offered 5k points if I spent 1k. A reader said that I was better off cancelling and churning the card. While I usually opt for churning, I held onto the card because Barclays had previously promised me 10,000 AAdvantage Miles if I spent $750 a month for 3 months. I did so and did not receive the points.
Barclays tried to argue that a return in the third statement period negated the offer. My lawyer, Alexander Bachuwa of The Fine Print and Bachuwa Law, argued that the offer said ‘months’ not billing statements. The agent read back the offer to me and my zealous attorney was correct. The claim was escalated and without the need to file an arbitration, I was awarded my points.
That Alex, he sure knows his lawyering. And he didn’t charge me anything!
