I have the no-AF version. It has the same chip-and-pseudo-PIN functionality, as well as access to RewardsBoost. The card certainly has its uses, but they are very irregular ones. It's a card I like having, even if it remains in my "sock drawer" 90% of the time.
I'm very happy to not have an AF on mine. I went for the no-AF version since I heard a lot of people were told they could not PC Arrival+ to Arrival. I didn't get the chip right away, but the changes took place shortly afterwards and I got the chip.
I think the Arrival+ would only suit someone who did a lot of international travel to certain countries and could use the PIN for a lot of transactions, but didn't need a card with an offline PIN.
For domestic travel, CSP is much better.
Very useful: SchwabPlat, CSP, IHG, Costco (was AA Plat), Freedom, SPG
Somewhat useful: Discover, ED (was EDP), BCE, Hyatt
Plan to PC: Prestige to DC
SD with activity alerts, might close: Arrival and Brooks Bros
Might add: Proper business card, CSR, Ritz, Delta Gold, First Tech, BofA Travel PH
