AAdvantage credit card partners are going after your business; there is currently a couple of nice sign ups on various AA co-branded cards. The excellent signup bonuses can be found with the AAdvantage® Aviator® Red World Elite Mastercard® and the Citi® / AAdvantage® Platinum Select® World Elite™ Mastercard®.
The Aviator Red is currently offering a signup bonus of 60,000 bonus miles after your first purchase within 90 days, and paying the card’s $95 annual fee. A nice 50% bump on the card’s initial offering of 40,000 bonus miles when it first launched. You can earn an additional 500 bonus miles signup bonus if you apply using an application received in-flight; you will earn the miles whether your application is approved or not.
For big spenders, the card will earn you 3,000 Elite Qualifying Dollars which count towards your Elite status, when you spend $25,000 per year. The card comes with a $95 annual fee that, unlike the AA Platinum Select, is not waived for the first year.
The AA Platinum Select is currently offering a signup bonus of 60,000 miles after $3,000 in purchases within the first 3 months of account opening.
- Preferred boarding
- Free checked bag
- Full-size carry-on allowed on board — even when flying on a basic economy fare
American Airlines has stated that the new bonus is a direct response to increased competition in the airline co-branded credit card market. This move is great for travelers who always benefit when companies have to up their game in response to competition. As an added bonus since both cards are issued by separate institutions, you could get both and pick up 110,000 bonus miles, which is nearly enough for two roundtrips to Europe in economy!
