any reason not to get this card? (assuming the 5/24 ship has long since sailed)

No, there's no spend requirement so you're basically buying 40k AA for $95 and that's only if you can't get the AF waived. I got an M&M, Aviator, and Arrival + in one day so you can always try for those as well although getting three barclay cards at once is not the norm.

any harm in cancelling after making that one purchase if you cant get AF waived? i currently have the arrival+ and recently had the M&M, any other good options? i dont fly much so JB isnt so helpful

Most likely not a problem as long as the points have posted but you never know. I also don't recall what barclay's refund policy is for AF.
Barclay cards are churnable remember.

in the past when i have tried, i think i recall it getting auto declined bc i just had it. and having to call up and argue why you need a card that you downgraded an hour ago is tough

So don't get an Arrival, do M&M and AA.

If I get a retention offer from Citi (spend 1k get 5k AA miles) then downgrade my card to no AF, will offer still be there?
they wouldnt waive my AF

If you downgrade a card and then cancel,  do they see the original,  or do they only see  the canceled one so it's easier to reapply?

It used to be they only saw the new one, but I think it changed close to when the usairways card stopped being offered.
