Arrival + Being Discontinued?

It is definitely odd. Hopefully Barclays understands that we are just trying to help them by giving them some feedback here. We all want this website, and the arrival line of credit cards, to be a huge success. We all want Barclays to succeed with this website and with their arrival credit cards.

 

All of us on here are frequent travelers and experienced connoisseurs of travel rewards credit cards. I really believe that this website helps us to communicate some ideas to the company. If they take one of my ideas and they make millions off of it then I am more than happy for them - hopefully they will just let us keep writing stories!

Interestingly enough, the blog posts on here still have pictures. Only our personal travel story pictures have disappeared.

This is definitely a most welcome and positive development. Hopefully it'll be smooth sailing from here.

Any whispers about arrival returning to the market yet?

I haven't seen or heard anything. It seems so strange that they'd offer an all-time high sign up bonus, then immediately stop offering the card for an extended period of time. Anyone have any theories?

The rumor I heard was that Barclays is only going to offer co-branded cards in the future.  I guess the US market is hard to crack for a British bank.

I never got the chance to convert to Arrival Premier, I would still like to do so. They closed apps 14 months ago and nothing yet? Maybe they are moving towards only issuing co-branded products. None of them interest me so I would likely close my existing Arrival account.

I would find it odd that they completely get rid of the card given that its consistently ranked as one of the best. I wonder if they will bring it back in a different form to be more competitive or if they will just stick to the co-branded which are not interesting.

 

All I know is I am planning to keep mine for as long as they will let me!

 

I realize this card didnt get as much press as the Chase or Amex cards but it competes really well as an everyday travel card.

 

Here is to hoping we are worrying about nothing and the card is staying in our wallets!
