Triple Miles Promotion On AAdvantage MasterCard

The AAdvantage Aviator MasterCard from Barclaycard appears to have bonus categories for the fall.  I received an offer in the mail that’s likely targeted, though there doesn’t appear to be an actual code for the offer:

Double Miles

From October 1 to December 31, 2016 they’re offering triple miles on all grocery store, restaurant, department store, toy store and game store purchases, up to $1,250 (for a total of 2,500 miles).

It depends on what care you carry in your wallet, but this is a nice promo for folks who don’t carry half a dozen cards like I do.  There are a handful of cards that earn 3X or greater on similar cards.  But, since none of those are transfer partners with American Airlines (though you can transfer Chase Ultimate Rewards to British Airways for AAdvantage awards), this makes the Barclaycard AAdvantage card a better deal than the various Citi cards for these categories through the end of the year.

It’s worth calling the phone number to see if you qualify.

  1. I got the same offer on my Barclay Aadvantage card and my wife got a similar offer on her Citi Aadvantage card.

    Am I reading it correctly that only the first $1,250 in spend in those categories will receive the bonus 2 miles? “Up to 2,500 miles”

    1. Earlier this year I had a similar promotion (maybe only on dining) and offered a full 2500 bonus miles after $2500 in purchases (2 miles per dollar spent on category(s)).

  2. I also got the “Spend $500 in Oct/Nov/Dec Get 15k bonus” as well… Stack em n rack em up! Go BarclayCard!
