The Hawaiian Airlines credit card now offers more free checked bags

I have to confess that this really isn't a critical piece of news that you all need to know but as we have quite a few readers from Hawaii and the West Coast, this seemed like something we should share - the Hawaiian Airlines® World Elite Mastercard® now offers cardholders more free checked backs on select flights and that could be a money saver.

Updated AAdvantage Aviator Red Credit Card Benefits

It now looks like Barclays has finally updated the rewards and benefits section of its Aviator website so we can finally see what benefits have been left in place for holders of the Red Card (Silver cardholders may see slightly different benefits).

Earn An Easy 75,000 AAdvantage Miles With This Credit Card (Offer May End Soon)

Right now, the Barclays AAdvantage Aviator Business credit card is offering an impressive 75,000 AAdvantage miles as its sign-up bonus but, as a recent email I received suggested this was my “last chance” to earn this bonus, it’s possible that this offer will not be around for much longer.

Last Day: Earn 60,000 Miles After A Single Purchase With This Credit Card

I'm going to start off by admitting that I'm not a massive fan of the American Airlines AAdvantage Aviator Red Mastercard despite the fact that it happens to be a credit card that I currently hold (for now).The recent changes to the card that Barclays has pushed through has made the card's long-term usefulness questionable but the current sign-up bonus (which ends tonight) is so good that it's almost certainly worth taking out the card for that alone.

American Airlines & Barclays Offering Bonus Points For Aviator Card Purchases [Targeted]

Last week we found out that Barclays is making some big changes to its American Airlines Aviator credit cards and, while some of the changes may be perceived as positive, the general consensus appears to be that the AAdvantage Aviator Red card will soon be a lot less useful than it is right now.

Barclays Arrival Premier Credit Card – Lipstick On A Pig

For a number of years Barclays' primary travel card has been its Arrival credit card but, while that card started life off quite promisingly, Barclays didn't wait too long before devaluing its earning power to a point where it's nothing more than a also-ran in the miles and points world. Now Barclays has introduced the Barclays Arrival Premier Credit Card to the world and, after having been teased about the card's potential benefits and features for a few weeks, the end result can only be described as a monumental disappointment.

AAdvantage Aviator Card Holders Can Earn Up To 20 Miles/$ Through Sunday

American Airlines has been sending out emails to AAdvantage Aviator credit card holders offering them up to 20 miles per dollar on spending at the AAdvantage eShopping store. Before you get overly excited you should know that the greatly enhanced earning rates are only available at a few select stores....but this could still be an economical way of racking up some AAdvantage miles while doing your Holiday shopping. This offer appears to have been running for a few days so I'm not sure why I've only just received the email but, that aside, the offer looks interesting.

Here’s A US Airline Credit Card That IS Worth Getting Right Now – The...

On Friday I wrote a post explaining why I think the British Airways Visa Card from Chase is redundant and at the end of July I wrote a post on why I hold just one airline credit card in my reasonably large credit card portfolio (I was wrong, I actually have two!).... but today I'm actually going to write about an airline credit card that people should be taking note of right now - the AAdvantage® Aviator™ Red World Elite Mastercard®

Barclaycard USA Pilot Program Allows You To Buy Miles From 1 Cent Each

At the beginning of 2017 Citibank's monopoly on issuing AAdvantage credit cards was broken thanks to a deal American Airlines inked with Barclaycard USA....and this has seen some innovation in the AAdvantage credit card sector. Citi's offerings had become somewhat stale so, when Barclaycard opened up its AAdvantage Aviator cards to new applications in January, it was a welcome change for a lot of customers.

New & Better AAdvantage Aviator Red Promotion

There were reports, last week, of AAdvantage Aviator Red credit card holders receiving a promotion in the mail that offered them 30,000 AAdvantage miles if they spend $2,500/month on their card for the next 6 months. I can’t say I was particularly impressed.
