Or, consider other cards for 50,000 or more miles or points that transfer into United miles with additional flexibility for your everyday spending.

If you have an old US Airways MasterCard you’re probably seeing a lot of email and mail from Barclaycard about the new AAdvantage Aviator cards that will soon replace your card.
But there’s one that’s not so well publicized.
It’s the AAdvantage Aviator Business MasterCard.
Although some Aviator credit cards have better benefits than the equivalent Citibank AAdvantage cards, the Aviator Business card’s features are identical to the existing CitiBusiness® / AAdvantage® Platinum Select® MasterCard®, including 2x miles for office supply, telecommunications, and car rental merchants.
While the annual fee is not known yet, complete benefits include:
And this could be a way to earn a fresh sign on bonus, since it’s an entirely different product from the personal version of the card.
We know the card will be open to applications from existing US Airways personal credit card holders after the Aviator cards are launched.
And there’s a chance it and the other Aviator cards will be open to applications from anyone, if Barclaycard, Citi, and American Airlines come to agreement.
One way to ensure you have access to apply for this card is to get a US Airways MasterCard now.
While the small business US Airways card stopped accepting applications several months ago, the personal version is accepting applications until March 28th, the day AAdvantage and Dividend Miles merge, though there will be some backdoor ways to apply until at least April 12th
Opening a US Airways MasterCard account by then will guarantee you have a personal Aviator card, which then means you’ll be able to apply for this Business MasterCard.
Or you can wait it out and gamble a bit on the chance that Barclays is able to open up applications for this and other Aviator cards to anyone.
Either way it’s good news if you’re interested in earning new bonuses for new card products.
