The American Airlines Aviator Business credit card is featuring a newly-increased welcome offer. That said, the full offer requires quite a lot of spend.

Earning the full welcome offer requires quite a lot of spend on this one, which dampens my enthusiasm for the second half of the welcome offer.
That said, if you are chasing American Airlines elite status and you have decided that this card makes more sense for you than the Citibusiness AAdvantage card, then you might be satisfied enough with the welcome offer here since spending on the card will also earn you 1x Loyalty points per dollar spent. This might be a particularly good fit if you’re working on qualifying for status through an instant status pass.
