(EXPIRED) 50K after 1st purchase with Aviator Business

Sorry, this deal is no longer available. Do you want to be alerted about new deals as they’re published? Click here to subscribe to Frequent Miler's Instant Posts by email.

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.

The Offer

  • Earn 50,000 bonus American Airlines AAdvantage miles after first purchase with the Barclays AAdvantage Business Aviator Business Mastercard within 90 days of account opening
  • Read more about this card and find a link on our AAdvantage Aviator Business Mastercard page.

Key Card Details

  • $95 annual fee is not waived
  • Earn 2X on American Airlines purchases, office supply, telecommunications services, and at car rental agencies
  • Earn 1X everywhere else
  • First checked bag free
  • Preferred boarding
  • 5% bonus on miles earned the previous year after AF is paid
  • Access to reduced mileage awards
  • 25% statement credit on in-flight purchases

Quick Thoughts

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.

Thank you! Can confirm offer page still working. Was instantly approved. However, also received instant notification from Credit Karma app that a credit inquiry was made to my TU report. Wonder if the account itself will also show up on personal credit report.




@Shaun – barclay’s business cards used to be super difficult to get approval for. How establsihed is your business? Any trouble with Barclay’s before?

So I applied for my wife who is at 6/24 1 new card in 6 months, 1 personal Barclay card- received instant approval. I then applied for myself 18/24 8 new cards in 6 months, 2 personal Barclay cards- received notice they will need to do more research on me. Both have credit scores above 800. We both just by and sell a few grand worth of stuff online each year.


Any thoughts on getting a second card when you already have one?


I was thinking that too .I brought a $1 coffee @ McD to get the points last year to get the points . Be careful with Barclays their tough .
