Guru’s Wrap-Up

The public offer is now 60,000 miles after spending $3,000 in three months. With this offer you get 10,000 less miles but you get a $200 statement credit on eligible American Airlines purchases. Eligible American Airlines purchases are items billed by American Airlines as merchant of record booked through American Airlines channels. So buying tickets, or paying for taxes and fees should trigger the $200 credit. This offer should be superior for most people.

The upgraded card will now earn 2X AAdvantage miles for every $1 you spend on Restaurants and Gas and a $100 AA flight discount after you spend $20,000 or more during your card membership year and you renew your card. The fee has been increased to $99 from $95, but it is waived the first year.
