If you’re looking for American Airlines AAdvantage miles, the offer on the AAdvantage Aviator Business Mastercard has increased to 60,000 miles
after first purchase update: after $1,000 in purchases within the first 90 days and payment of the $95 annual fee (note: the old offer required 1 purchase, the new offer requires $1K in purchases). While some people find AA miles very useful and others not at all, this is certainly a way to pad your balance without much effort if interested.
The Offer & Key Card Details
Some people love AA miles and others hate them. Anecdotally, I’ve seen a lot more saver space open up over the past year than in the previous year or two, so it has looked to be improving based on my searches. Of course, that is likely route-dependent.
Still, the most valuable use of AAdvantage miles for most travelers remains for travel in international premium cabins on American’s partners. However, rumors abound that Etihad, arguably the most “glamorous” of American’s partners, may sever ties with American and join the Star Alliance any day now. If you’re looking to score this bonus with the hopes of flying on Etihad, it’s worth noting that it’s a gamble as to whether or not you’ll receive the miles in time (though note the end of ties is still a rumor and could easily fail to materialize).
Note also that some readers have reported that approvals on this card are harder than most business cards. That situation will of course vary from one person to the next, but it’s worth noting that Barclay’s may request additional documentation about your business.
