Well, that is one way to get your AAoA up. Were they cards you previously had?
If the charge card was new, it seems a waste of a signup bonus. If it was old, did you have to pay the annual fee?

Is that WF 365 Propel mostly for the signup bonus? Or you're okay with the so-so rewards and the annual fee in the future because of the nice limit?

The Venture does make the Arrival+ looks like not such a clear value. And if you ignore the DoubleCash's FTF, the DC is probably better. Still, bonuses can be very tempting.
