If you have been eyeing the Barclaycard AAdvantage Aviator Business credit card you may want to take a closer look because they have just raised the bonus offer that comes along with this card. Right now new cardholders can earn 75,000 bonus AAdvantage miles, which can be used to book flights.
How does this bonus work? It's actually a two-part earning opportunity. New Cardholders earn the first 65,000 AAdvantage bonus miles when they use their card to pay for $1000 in merchandise and/or services. This has to be done within the first 90 days of having the card to get the bonus.
What about the remaining 10,000 AAdvantage bonus miles? There is no spending connected to these miles, all cardholders need to do is to add an employee card to their account during the first 30 days they have the card. Then a purchase must be made with the employee card, whether it's a latte, supplies or anything else.
Earning double points
While getting a bonus is great the goal is to keep earning points. With the Barclaycard AAdvantage Aviator Business Credit card, all eligible purchases made with American Airlines earns cardholders double points. They also earn double points when using their card to pay for office supplies, telecom services, and car rentals. All other purchases net them 1 point per dollar spent.
Cardholders also get a 5% AAdvantage mileage bonus on their anniversary every year, as long as their card is still active.
There is no limit to how many points cardholders can earn.
Travel benefits and more
Cardholders also get their first checked bag free for themselves and up to four people in their party, along with preferred boarding. They also get a Companion ticket every year after their anniversary, and once the cardholder has spent $25,000 they earn $3,000 Elite Qualifying Dollars.

- 25% savings on inflight purchases
