[update 12/11/14: I do not, in fact, have any affiliate links on this stie, but I'm leaving this post up purely for historical reasons. None of the links in this post pay me in any way.]
As I've mentioned a few times here on the blog and in the comments section, in general I don't have any credit card affiliate links on this site (some of the signup links to services like TopCashBack do give me some kind of referral credit, although I haven't received any in the 5 months I've been running this website) . I always link to the best offers I know of, and update the links in the main body of the website as soon as I learn of a better offer or that an offer has been discontinued.
This isn't because of any burning hatred of affiliate links or disrespect for bloggers who use them (although bloggers who repeatedly write about the same 2 or 3 cards - Chase's Sapphire Preferred and Ink Bold/Plus cards are frequent examples - certainly aren't doing anything to enhance their credibility).
The reason I haven't had affiliate links is that it's pretty hard to get approved for affiliate links for the principal credit card issuers, and I would never link to credit cards that I wouldn't apply for myself.
All this brings me to the point of this post, which is that today I got an e-mail saying I'd been approved for affiliate links to cards issued by Barclaycard.
I think I'm supposed to copy and paste a bunch of advertising material, which I'm obviously not going to do. But if you are already going to apply for the 40,000 point Arrival World Mastercard signup bonus and 2.22% cash back earning rate, and want to support the work I do here on the blog and in my book, The Free-quent Flyer's Manifesto, one way to do so is to apply through my affiliate link. I'll also update the link you'll find in the section of the site dedicated to Chapter 2 of the book.
You can read all about the Arrival World MasterCard in the series of posts I wrote on earning and redeeming that card's rewards currency.
(In case you're wondering, my affiliate link is worse than the publicly available offer for the Barclaycard US Airways Premier World MasterCard and Lufthansa Premier Miles & More World MasterCard, so I'm not giving it out, although if any readers are interested I can post those links in the comments).
