Prediction: Barclaycard will offer 50k US miles in April

I think this is pretty much a done deal. I predict we'll see it in April.

Here's why,
1) Citi is offering 50k for the same airline on a very similar card, in fact the Barclaycard will become an Aadvantage card soon
2) Barclaycard is no stranger to the 50k offer; they routinely do it for the miles and more +Lufthansa card
3) They said they are going balls to the wall on acquisition in the industry press; as reported by View from the Wing

If you don't have this card yet; hold off! I'm sure it will be worth it. The offer certainly isn't getting worse.

Update; will run for miles educated me one may want to get multiple of this card, totally changing strategies. Not sure what the best plan is now.
