An online lender called Credibly has partnered with American Airlines’ Business Extra program to offer up to 20,000 Business Extra points with a funded business loan of up to $250,000.

I’ll break the offer down a bit, but I’m going to preface with a disclaimer: I have NO idea what Credibly’s rates are. If you do need a loan and the rates they quote you are not competitive, I do not recommend doing this just for the points. I’ve also never used nor heard of Credibly.

All of that said, the details are on this Credibly page.

Here’s the relevant earning table:

And here’s the Business Extra chart. This is for domestic travel.

For more points you can do international all the way up to First (this is just Europe):

Note that you will need to find standard AAdvantage “Saver” availability in order to use a Business Extra award. So those transcon premium cabins with scarce sAAVer availability will be just as scarce in this table.

But if you fly a route with a lot of sAAver availability in coach, 20,000 points would actually buy you 10 round trips. The above prices are for round trip travel (a one way would not be any less points).

Personally, I am filing this under “Interesting. May explore further.”

Have you dealt with Credibly or do you have any more insight on ways to maximize this on the Credibly sideLet me know here, on Twitter, or in the private MilesTalk Facebook group.
