The AAdvantage Aviator Business Mastercard disappeared a few weeks or months ago from the Barclays website. It returned yesterday with a welcome offer that’s not an all-time high, but is still a fairly strong offer.

Quick Thoughts

If you didn’t take AAdvantage of the Conservation International offer towards the end of last year and could do with boosting your American Airlines mileage balance, the return of this Business credit card could be a good way to do that.

The welcome offer has two elements to it. The bulk of the miles – 60,000 of them – are earned by spending $1,000 in the first 90 days of being a cardholder – a fairly easy spending requirement as things go. The other 10,000 bonus miles are earned by adding an employee card and having a purchase made on that card.

The card comes with a number of perks including a Companion Certificate where a guest can fly with you for $99 + taxes and fees, although you have to put $30,000 of spend on the card within your cardholder year in order to earn that certificate.

Remember that only base spending on an American Airlines credit card earns Loyalty Points in their new elite status program. That means that if you were to spend exactly $1,000 in order to earn the 60,000 bonus miles, you’d only earn 1,000 Loyalty Points, not 61,000 of them.

If you’re not concerned about your 5/24 status, applying for the personal Aviator Red card could be a better option. That card also offers 60,000 bonus miles as its welcome offer (albeit without the opportunity to earn the other 10,000 bonus miles for adding an employee card), but the personal card has its annual fee waived for the first year and you only need to make one purchase on the card in order to earn the bonus miles.

I opened the Citi business advantage platinum on 4-2019. can I open the non business card and still get the bonus this month and then on 4-2023 open another Citi business and still get the bonus. Could I also open the Barclay and get that bonus? It’s not clear – can you please explain. thank you kindly!


This is a dream bank for AA points. This card worked All over the EU no hassles like 6 years ago WAY ahead of the others.On my 4th personal card spent $2 to get 60K then cancel in 11 months True Love it is.
Never been turned down by this bank as in very loyal to my 812 Fico.
Great card IF u like AA and FM makes no profit I think.This will be next card easy to do.

Thoughts about whether relaunching this produce means Barclays will “forget” if you’ve had this card in the past? P2 was denied for a second one last year (closed first one a year before) although my app was approved after having card previously.


Is the SUB once in a lifetime?


T&C from Barclays’ site:

Bonus AAdvantage® Miles
You will receive 60,000 bonus AAdvantage® miles after spending $1,000 on Net Purchases within the first 90 days of your Account open date. This one-time bonus AAdvantage® miles offer is valid for new accounts only. Existing accounts, and previous cardmembers with accounts closed in the past 24 months may not be eligible for this offer.


So 24+ months IF u got any bonus from them,personal or Bus.Will they tell u before u apply the Heads Up is ???
Good Job


DoC has mentioned this point multiple times and I’ve seen it discussed a lot online…if you’re approved for the card, you will generally get the bonus. Not guaranteed obviously, but I personally have gotten the bonus on both personal and biz after having the cards previously.


How does Barclays feel about having more than one of these? Do you know of any data points?


I had Personal & Bus at same time .BUT Good luck.
