AAdvantage Aviator Business Card

AAdvantage Aviator Business Card Increased Offer – All Time High

Barclays recently increased the bonus on their AAdvantage Aviator Business credit card and it is the all time high for the card.  The really unique thing about the Barclays American Airlines credit cards is it only takes one purchase to get the bonus.

The details for the AAdvantage Aviator Business card and welcome bonus are as follows:

  • Earn 60,000 AAdvantage miles after your first purchase (purchase amount does not matter)
    • Must also pay the $95 annual fee to earn the bonus.
  • Earn 2 miles per dollar on American Airlines purchases
  • 2 Miles per dollar on office stores, telecom, and car rentals as well
  • 1 mile per dollar on everything else
  • First checked bag free with the card
  • 5% mileage bonus on all miles earned each year
  • Access to American Airlines reduced mileage awards.

You can also earn a $99 companion certificate if you spend $30,000 on the card but don’t do this, it is not worth it.

This is a pretty amazing offer even though American Airlines miles are not as valuable as they used to be.  The offer on the Citi American Airlines Business card is 70,000 miles but you need to spend $4,000 to earn the welcome bonus. This is the better offer of the two but Barclays can be a tricky approval.  Let us know if you are considering the card in the comments section.

  1. I was declined for the Citi AA business card. I was approved for the Barclay AA business card last week. I only got a 50k point offer. We will see if the points post. I actually plan to use this card for a business that was started 1.5 years ago.

  2. I have a Citi-issued AA card whose signup bonus was denied. Apparently I’d already gotten an AA bonus about 18 months earlier. Does anyone know what previous card conditions could lead to the Barclays-issued bonus being denied?

  3. For those with a lose interpretation of a business, be aware Barclays is a little tougher on the application compared to Citi, Amex and even Chase. They asked me for tax documents, ect to verify that the business is real. There is also a story by TPOL on this on his Jetblue card.

  4. I had the Aviator Red Personal Card, but cancelled it a few months ago. After calling Barclays and being transferred 6(!) times and spending an hour on the phone, the last guy said i wasn’t eligible for the bonus on the Business Card, but even he seemed unsure.
