    [USER=1270]@steve2015[/USER] is the first card the Barclays Arrival plus? Where do you usually travel? Domestic? International?

    The World Arrival Plus Elite MasterCard. I currently have it. The annual fee is due for the 2nd year. My travel was domestic for air/hotel. It was about $1000.00

    Hi [USER=1270]@steve2015[/USER] f the fee is due for the second year then I’m not sure why we’re comparing first year benefits unless you’re planning to cancel the card and reapply for it.

    In general the Capital One card is not very liked in this community. Ben discusses his thoughts here:

    In terms of sign up bonuses the CSP easily beats the Arrival Plus. For day to day use unless you spend a lot of money on travel and dining I’d say the arrival is probably better since you’ll get 2.1% back everywhere and more flexibility in booking the flights you want. That being said there is no reason why you can’t get both of them.
