Creditnet's Full Review

Are you searching for a travel rewards credit card with no annual fee?  Well, there aren't many of them out there, but the Barclaycard Arrival™ World MasterCard® is certainly worth your consideration.  Cardholders earn double miles on qualifying travel purchases and 1 mile per dollar spent on all other purchases.  
Spend $1,000 during the first 90 days, and you'll receive a 20,000 mile bonus which is worth $200 in travel statement credits.  The amount of miles you can earn is not capped, and your miles never expire as long as you keep you account open in good standing.  Do you want to stay on top of how your credit scores are doing too?  If so, cardholders even have access to their FICO credit scores for free.

Favorite Card Features:

No annual fee, plus double miles on travel and dining purchases. The Barclaycard Arrival™ World MasterCard®  also offers no mileage caps or foreign transaction fees, as well as 5% bonus miles back when you redeem for travel. The card also offers a 0% introductory APR on balance transfers for 12 months.

Least Favorite Features:

Aside from the fact that there is no annual fee, consumers might find the 2x purchases version of this card to be more lucrative overall. Than again, this is the only version of the Barclaycard Arrival™ World MasterCard®  without an annual fee, so it's really a matter of opinion.

Our Final Take:

Overall, the Barclaycard Arrival™ World MasterCard® is an excellent travel rewards card that rivals some of the very best in its category. Frequent flyers interested in a new kind of miles card might find exactly what they're looking for with this offer.  And hey, you get free FICO credit scores too!  That's a pretty sweet deal.

I didn't think I could meet the $3K spend limit for the annual-fee version of this card, so I went for the no annual fee version.  Seems like a great card so far.  20,000 sign-up bonus and 0% interest for 12 months too.  Not a bad deal for a card with no annual fee.  I have FICOs in the 700s and had no problem getting approved.
