Creditnet's Full Review

The Barclaycard Arrival Plus™ World Elite MasterCard® offers cardholders double miles on all purchases, plus you can earn up to 40,000 bonus miles when you spend $3,000 within the first 90 days.  Your sign-up bonus of 40,000 points is essentially worth $400 in your pocket, since those 40,000 miles can be redeemed for travel statement credits at a rate of 100 miles per dollar.
 
The $89 annual fee is also waived for the first year, making The Barclaycard Arrival Plus™ World Elite MasterCard® a no brainer if you’re in the market for a new travel credit card and think you can hit the $3,000 spending threshold during the first 90 days.  And as an added bonus, Barclaycard also throws in free access to your FICO credit scores, which is a great benefit, and 5% miles back when you redeem miles for a travel credit.  If you're one of those people that have a hard time pulling the trigger on rewards redemption, this could be a great card for you.

Favorite Card Features:

Cardholders can earn double miles on all purchases, a 40,000 mile sign-up bonus after spending $3,000 during the first 90 days, and you also get free FICO credit scores.  Redemption of miles is easy and flexible as well.

 

Least Favorite Features:

Annual fees are always kind of a bummer, but at least this one is waived the first year!

 

Our Final Take:

If you have excellent credit scores and are looking for a new travel rewards credit card, the Barclaycard Arrival Plus™ World Elite MasterCard® is worth considering.  Double miles on all purchases, up to 40,000 miles as a sign-up bonus, the annual fee is waived the first year, and there are no foreign transaction fees to boot.  Still on the fence?  Read our detailed comparison of the Barclaycard Arrival Plus vs. the no annual fee version of the card: Barclaycard Arrival MasterCard Review: To Pay - Or Not Pay - The Annual Fee.

I've never had a Barclaycard before, but I was approved immediately and received a $13K credit limit.  FICO scores are in the upper 700s.  Great sign-up bonus of 40,000 points and the online account setup was a snap.  Looking forward to racking up double miles with this card.  Thanks

Decided to go with the Arrival Plus since the annual fee is waived for the first year.  Great sign-up bonus of 40,000 miles and double miles on all purchases.
