This flexible travel card earns statement credits on all spending and boasts a hefty sign-up bonus.
Review of the Barclaycard Arrival Plus World Elite MasterCard
The simple rewards structure of the Barclaycard Arrival Plus World Elite MasterCard earns 2X on all spending, which means no fussing with different rewards categories. Rewards are redeemable for cash back, gift cards, merchandise, and all the usual travel purchases (flights, hotels, car rentals, etc), with the notable exception of tourist attractions.
Still, it is one of the most flexible travel cards, has a relatively low annual fee, and offers high value rewards.
Plus, its very large welcome bonus of 40,000 miles has a value of about $400, which alone covers more than 4 years worth of annual fees.
The Bottom Line
With this high value card you won’t have to fuss with spending categories (all purchases earn 2X rewards) and will earn a hefty sign-up bonus that pays for more than four years worth of its relatively low annual fee.
