When I go to the credit cards.com website for this offer, the highest offer I see is 50k points for 5k spend in 3 months.

Greg,

I don’t have this card but I’m considering it. Do you know if AAdvantage membership numbers are automatically updated to include AC access? Meaning: 1) do I need to have the card on me to get in, and 2) can I get in to a club before my card arrives? Thanks!
