Barclaycard AAdvantage Aviator Red World Elite Mastercard, 40,000 Bonus Miles After One Purchase

Barclaycard US, the payments business of Barclays in the United States, today announced that consumers can now apply for the AAdvantage Aviator Red World Elite Mastercard. The card is a bit different from the product that ex-US Airways cardholders have through a product change.

The card comes with a decent bonus and no spend requirement. You get 40,000 AA miles after a first purchase is made on the Account within ninety (90) days of account opening and the annual fee has been paid. The card has a $95 annual fee which is not waived (compared to $89 for the old Aviator Red card). The card gives you 10 percent of your redeemed AAdvantage miles back (10,000 miles maximum per calendar year) and the ability to earn $3,000 Elite Qualifying Dollars (EQDs) when you spend $25,000 each calendar year.

This one-time AAdvantage bonus mileage offer is valid for first-time cardmembers with new accounts only. Existing cardmembers, existing accounts, and previous cardmember with accounts closed in the past 24 months may not be eligible for this offer.

Other Aviator cards should become available for sign up in 2017.

  1. I noticed that the new Aviator Red cards are World Elite Mastercards while the old Aviator Red cards are only World Mastercards. I have the World Mastercard with an $89 annual fee, which I will keep for the 10,000 annual bonus miles. I am not certain what additional benefits are available to the World Elite Mastercard holders for an annual fee that is $6 higher.

  3. It would have been perfect if they waived fee, but 40K AA miles for $95 and no spending requirement is not bad at all. Thanks for heads up!

  4. Nice find, Danny! Looks like you were the first one to report on it. One note: I don’t believe Barclays (the issuing bank) has a rule on waiting 24 months after closing the previous card. At least, not that we know of.

      • Hmm, you are absolutely right! I was looking at the wrong part of the app. Very interesting. I checked and don’t see this verbiage on Arrival Plus…yet. I wonder if this is a sign of things to come?
