50,000 sweet AAdvantage miles with one purchase (Business card)
I love the Barclay’s Aviator credit cards. I really do. And although I wish I had affiliate links to the cards because they are so fun to talk about, I don’t – which changes nothing with regards to me telling you about the best ways to earn miles and points.
American Airlines AAdvantage miles are fabulous mileage currency.
They aren’t transferable like credit card points, but they have fantastic redemption possibilities as long as you don’t actually think you will use them to fly American Airlines. This is probably a good time to reread my post “5 reasons AAdvantage miles are underrated.”
Last year, the Barclay Aviator Red card (a personal credit card) was offering 60,000 miles with one purchase. If you didn’t get in on that deal, I’m sure it will return soon (I have some theories that it could be as early as this month).
Meanwhile, Barclay has just upped the bonus on their AAdvantage business card product.
And once again, you’ll need to make just one purchase (coffee, anyone?) as well as pay the $95 annual fee to get 50,000 AAdvantage miles. This is great since the other main method of earning beaucoup AAdvantage miles is the Citi personal and business credit cards, which both require around $3,000 in 3 months to get the bonus and you can only get those bonuses once every 24 months.
Note that Barclay may check to see that you have a real business and may require documentation. Or not. Nothing says you can’t be a sole proprietor.
This offer is good through July 29th, 2018.
Do you plan to get this card?
