The Barclays Aviator Business card has had a limited-time offer of 50,000 American Airlines miles after first purchase that was thought to be scheduled to end on July 29th, 2018. However, that offer is still available. While some people find American Airlines miles more useful than others (see this past weekend’s week in review around the web for some good uses), fifty thousand miles after a single purchase is a good deal even if you find them of limited use.

Again, 50,000 miles after a single purchase is a pretty good deal. That’s nearly (though not quite) enough to fly in business class to Europe or Asia, and it requires very little effort since the only spending requirement is a single purchase.
Barclays business credit cards can be a more difficult approval than some, so you may need to call reconsideration. With such little opportunity cost, these miles may well be worth it for those looking to pick up easy AAdvantage miles.
