New AAdvantage Aviator Business Credit Card for American Airlines miles

by on Wed March 25, 2015 • 10 Comments


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 AAdvantage® Aviator® Business Mastercard® card’s features are identical to the existing CitiBusiness® / AAdvantage® Platinum Select® MasterCard®, including 2x miles for office supply, telecommunications, and car rental merchants.

Complete benefits include:

  • Double miles on eligible American and US Airways purchases
  • Earn 2X AAdvantage® miles for every one dollar spent on eligible American Airlines purchases
  • Earn 1X AAdvantage® miles for every one dollar spent on all other purchases
  • Free eligible checked bag free for you and up to 4 traveling companions on American Airlines domestic flights
  • Preferred boarding on American Airlines flights
  • 5% AAdvantage® mileage bonus earned every year after your account anniversary date based on the total number of miles earned using your card
  • 25% savings on eligible American Airlines in-flight  purchases
  • Earn an American Airlines companion certificate for $99 (plus taxes and fees)

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.

Either way it’s good news if you’re interested in earning new bonuses for new card products.

    interested in company credit card for aviator, but would like to speak with someone about the difference from the current Advantage american airlines card i have.

    I have an American Airlines AAdvantage Aviator Master Card (Barclaycard) and I noticed that purchases made March or April have not been credited, or added to, my frequent flyer account. The last amount of miles added to my account was at the end of February. Since then I’ve made considerable amounts of purchases on both the former USAirways card and now the AAdvantage card (both were and now are Barclay Master Cards). The May statement has not arrived as yet (June 11), whereas most of the time it used to arrive earlier in the month. Please advise when I can look for the past three month’s ‘miles’! Thank you


      @Carolyn – Very strange – it’s possible you had duplicate mileage accounts with American and US Airways and that they’ve assigned a different one. First step is to call the Barclaycard number on the back of your card to see which frequent flyer account number they are using.

  3. Miles

    @MileCards – That’s a conversion, not a new application. Does Barclays permit conversions between personal and business cards?


      @Miles – Similar to the Aviator Silver card, where holders of existing Aviator cards are the only ones eligible to apply for it.
