Hailed as one of, if not the, best travel cards on the market, the Barclaycard Arrival Plus World Elite offers 2 points on all spending and a 10% redemption dividend that'll yield you 2.2% in rewards whenever you use the card.
Travel rewards earned with the Barclaycard Arrival Plus World Elite are also among the most flexible, usable as statement credits on any travel expense. Simply book a ticket, a night's stay or a car rental and then use your existing points to offset those expenses. And unlike loyalty programs where you have to accumulate a billion miles to use them, the World Elite lets you begin getting statement credits with as little as 2,500 points for $25.
The Barclaycard Arrival Plus World Elite comes with a very large signing offer. New cardholders are eligible to receive 40,000 bonus miles if they spend $3,000 in the first 90 days of opening the account. With a value of $400 when used for statement credits against travel, this is among the most valuable bonuses available to consumers. The bonus alone compensates for nearly 5 years worth of annual fees.
There is an $89 annual fee, but it's waived for the first year.
