I believe certain airline cards are not worth the A/F's. Specifically the Chase United Explorer Card.

For those who are light travelers and have no program loyalty the CSP + Freedom combo and AMEX Everday make very good sense.

In regards to the Arrival+. I was successful in getting the $89 A/F waived for the second year. This was achieved even though I only spent approx. $15K over the first year.

Why that card, specifically? At first glance, it doesn't look that different than other airline-specific cards with similar AFs.
Warranties and sketchy merchants: Schwab Platinum
Price rewind: Costco
Travel insurance: Prestige, CSP
Perks: IHG, Hyatt
Rewards/Offers: Discover, Freedom, ED, BCE
Taxes/Misc: SPG

Limited value, might close: Arrival

Might add: First Tech, proper business card
