The signup bonus on the AAdvantage® Aviator® Red World Elite Mastercard® is 50,000 bonus miles. This 25% increase over the previous 40,000 mile standard bonus offers some solid value for the card especially if you consider that the bonus miles are awarded after the first billing statement where you make just one transaction, has an annual fee of only $95, and is also eligible for the top tier discounts with AA reduced mileage awards.
