Is the Barclaycard Arrival Plus Worth the Annual Fee?

Million Mile Secrets Reader, Mike, commented:

Am I missing something, or is the no-fee Chase Freedom Unlimited far superior to the Barclaycard Arrival Plus?  You can get more value with 1.5 Chase Ultimate Rewards points per $1 when you transfer them.  Even the Citi Double Cash looks superior, earning effectively 2% cash back vs. 2.1%.  And you can use it for anything and there is no annual fee.  Are there any benefits other than the sign-up bonus of the Barclaycard Arrival Plus that would justify the $89 annual fee?

Mike makes some great points!  There are good no annual fee credit card options that earn valuable rewards instead of the $89 annual fee Barclaycard Arrival Plus.

But the Barclaycard Arrival Plus has perks that make the card worth signing-up for, and depending on your situation, even keeping!
