2.2% Back with Barclaycard Arrival - Hack My Trip


I've become less averse to annual fees now that I'm in the "game". Does the Fidelity not have an annual fee? I thought it did...

Priceline and Fidelity do not have AFs.

As usual David is correct, no AF on the Fidelity. 2% rewards across the board.

I really like this card. I have to stop myself from apping for it everyday, bc I will buy a home within the year. The signup is big and seems like a great general spending card, at least for the first year without the AF

Actually, the AF is waived the first year. Depending on whether you want it for the ongoing cash-back or just for the bonus, you might not ever have to pay it.
