Barclay AAdvantage Aviator Approved

I had ZERO interest in opening another card...I had asked Barclaycard reps six ways from Sunday about PC'ing my Arrival+ to the AAdvantage Aviator Red Card and was repeatedly told "No, not possible" ...really irks me to be honest.  I was considering app'ing for the Citi version but just got approved for the Costco Visa on Tuesday and have to wait 8 days between Citi Apps according to the forum(s). Citi already reported the new account to EX & EQ but good ol' TU slow as heck to update, so I said what the heck since I'm going to trim some fat and combine some credit limits to reduce the number of open accounts I have.  Will be calling Re-Con to try and push SL up to $10K so when I combine my Arrival+ limit I'll have a nice $30k limit :-)


Here's my TU Stats at time of approval:


Fico 8: 705

Util: ~15%


24m - 10

12m - 5

6m - 4

AAoA: 1.9 yrs
