I received a targeted spending offer in the mail today on a Barclaycard AA Aviator Card: Spend $500 per month in August, September, and October and receive 15,000 bonus AA miles for a total of 16,500 miles for $1500 spend. This looked like a great offer to me — don’t throw away your mailer.
- Spend $500 each month in August, September, and October and receive 15,000 bonus miles
- This offer is targeted
- You must spend $500 or more in each of the three calendar months (if you spend $499 one month, you get 0 miles)
- Account must remain in good standing
This offer is obviously targeted, but I know that my these mailers tend to be thrown out before I see them if I’m not careful. Luckily, in this case, I knew it was coming. I previously signed up for Informed Delivery from the USPS, so I receive scans each morning of the mail. I didn’t know for sure what this one would be, but I saw this in my email this morning and knew I wanted to be sure to check it before it got thrown away:
So if you see that mailer, open it up!
It’s worth noting that my anniversary date is coming up next month and I haven’t been using this card and intended to cancel it (or at least call for a retention offer). They beat me to the punch as I think this spending offer more than mitigates the annual fee. My wife also recently opened this card since it is the easiest 50K miles possible (just make a single purchase and pay the AF). Hopefully she can look forward to a similar offer when her anniversary comes around next year. Either way, I’ll certainly be putting $500 a month on this card in August, September, and October. Keep your eyes peeled if you’re a cardholder.
