I was looking at both Arrival and Arrival+ yesterday but I have no use for them that I can figure out so far...
Yes, it's the no-AF one.
I got it under three incorrect beliefs:
1. It was a "true" Chip+PIN card that would have excellent international acceptance. (It defaults to asking for a signature.)
2. It had an EMV chip like the Arrival+. (It didn't at the time, it does now.)
3. Barclaycard was very strict about not allowing people to PC from Arrival+ to Arrival, and would decline any Arrival app from someone who currently had or recently closed an Arrival+. (They usually allow PCs, or at least they do now.)
I do occasionally get some use out if it with the RewardsBoost feature...though not all of it might be above board.
Maybe I'll be more daring with this after I redeem the last $100 of rewards on it.
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
