Quick Thoughts

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.

This is the same card that sometimes this many points with 1 transaction?


How tough is it to get a second card?


My recent Aviator Business statement contains the following: “As of October 2023, Barclays will begin reporting your Business Card account activity to the Experian Small Business Credit Bureau on a monthly basis.”
Is that different than the personal credit report? Will Chase see it?


I’m seeing this too, wondering if I need to close my card now


Citibusiness AAdvantage does not give you 1x per dollar spent?


His point is the welcome offer is additional 1x on 15k on top of the regular earnings.
