Barclaycard has increased the sign-up bonus for its AAdvantage Aviator Red World Elite Mastercard. The card card was released late last year with a 40K bonus.
Bonus And Requirements
Earn 50,000 bonus miles when you make your first purchase in the first 90 days and pay the annual fee.
The AAdvantage Aviator Red World Elite Mastercard come with an annual fee of $95, which is not waived the first year, so you’re paying $95 for 50K AA miles.
Earning on this card in not great. You get one AA mile per dollar on all purchases and 2 AA miles per dollar on eligible American Airlines purchases.
One nice perk is that it gives you 10 percent of your redeemed AAdvantage miles back, but it is limited to 10,000 miles maximum per calendar year.
You also have the ability to earn $3,000 Elite Qualifying Dollars (EQDs) when you spend $25,000 each calendar year. If you spend $5,000 more you also get $100 American Airlines Flight Discount (the “Flight Discount”) after you spend $30,000 or more during your cardmembership 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.
You must be at least 18 years of age. This offer is available only to applicants who are residents of the United States, with the exception of Puerto Rico and the US territories.
