Creditnet's Full Review

The Barclays Arrival® Premier World Elite Mastercard® offers cardholders double miles on all purchases, plus you can earn up to 25,000 in loyalty bonus miles EVERY YEAR after you spend $25,000. Essentialy, you'll earn 75,000 miles each year if you spend $25,000 on purchases!  Your loyalty bonus of 25,000 miles is essentially worth $250 in your pocket, since those bonus miles can be redeemed for travel statement credits at a rate of 100 miles per dollar.
 
Don't think you'll spend $25,000 in a year?  Well, if you spend $15,000, you'll still get a 15,000 bonus.  Spend an additional $10K, and you'll get the remaining bonus for the year!  If you don't think you'll spend $15,000, no worries--you'll still earn 2X miles per $1 on every single purchase with no limit.
 
If you're a world traveler, you'll appreciate that this card gives an automatic statement credit of $100 for the cost of one Global Entry application fee every five years!

Favorite Card Features:

Cardholders can earn 3x miles on the first $25,000 in purchases each year.  After that, you can still earn 2X with no limit on miles earned.  Redemption of miles is easy and flexible as well.  My absolute favorite feature is the Global Entry feature.  I'm a huge fan of making international travel as easy as possible, and there's no easier way to come home at the airport than with Global Entry.

 

Least Favorite Features:

The annual fee is on the high end but it is acceptable given the annual bonus and Global Entry!

Our Final Take:

If you have excellent credit scores and are looking for a new travel rewards credit card, the Barclays Arrival® Premier World Elite Mastercard® is worth considering.  Triple miles on all purchases up to $25,000 each year, and double miles after that with no limit).  No foreign transation fees and Global Entry reimbursement make this an awesome credit card for anyone who loves to travel.

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.
