I won't be using either card very regularly, but they have their roles.
I've been liking my new Arrival alot. 2x pts on dining is nice plus I get a free monthly TU score, and their online interface isnt bad. Using it for the majority of the time until i hit the 1k spend for the 20k pts.
I plan to buy a computer with mine to hit the bonus spend, then put minimal activity on it to keep it open and reserve it mainly as a convenient tool for international travel.
I'm still within the Freedom restaurant bonus cap, so that gets my restaurant spending. I have CSP for restaurant overflow spending, if necessary.
Barclaycard does have an excellent website. The TU FICO on there isn't really monthly, though. Mine hasn't updated since March.
Very useful: SchwabPlat, CSP, IHG, Costco (was AA Plat), Freedom, SPG
Somewhat useful: Discover, ED (was EDP), BCE, Hyatt, Arrival
May close or PC: Prestige, BrooksBros
Might add: Proper business card, CSR, Ritz, Delta Gold, First Tech
