AAdvantage Aviator Red Master Card - with 60K Incentive / 5k 😥

Howdy friends,

 

Was on a flight back from Vegas last week and they were handing out applications for the American Airlines AAdvantage, Aviator Red Card..  (whew that's a long one). Anyway, since I need another travel card like a hole in the head, what did I do? Applied of course!  Anyway, it was an instant by skimpy 5K.  BTW, this is the first time that Barclay has approved me,,,  I have apped a couple of times for the Apple/Barclay card and always felt the sting of rejection.

 

Here are some details;

a. Hard Pull, Equifax

b. This hard pull made my Equifax score go down 4 points, from 756 to 752  😥

c. Card Fee: $99 / year

 

d. 60,000 Advantage Bonus Miles after making a single purchase and paying $99 fee within the first 90 days

e. 1 companion Fair and Anniversary Companion Certificate

f. Inflight savings 25%R statement credits on food and beverages

g. $25 statement credit for inflight Wi-Fi  (only once a year)

 

Anyway, once I have those 60K miles credited to my advantage account time to book my round trip to Italy 🤞

Congrats on the approval!  It's always enticing as some flight attendants put on a good sales pitch in the air... "Do it now or you're out of luck upon landing!"

Congrats on the approval and SL! Welcome to the Aviator Red club... look into their "Flight Cents" option they have. Easy way to track up miles on top of the usual methods. I love using this feature since I always get my cup of coffee with the card, mind as well put that change to use.

Lol. I need to up mine this statement. I started at $10 for the same reason, not sure what to start with. That $10 got me 500 extra miles. So that $200 should do nicely to start with! I'm guessing in a few months of decent spend, they will offer an upgrade to the Silver card!
