Benefits

  1. 75k offer: earn 65,000 AAdvantage Miles after spending $1,000 within the first 90 days, and earn additional 10,000 AAdvantage Miles when a purchase is made on an employee card! 
  2. 5% AAdvantage mileage bonus earned every year after your account anniversary date based on the total number of miles earned using your card. Compared to the personal Barclaycard AA Aviator Red, you get this 5% bonus but lose the 10% redeemed mile back benefit.
  3. We value AA Miles at 1.6 cents/point (Airline Miles Value), so the 75k highest sign-up bonus worth about $1,200! See A Beginner’s Guide to AA Miles to check for details about AA Miles.
  4. Earn 2 AAdvantage miles per $1 spent on eligible American Airlines purchases and on office supply, telecom and car rental merchants, earn 1 AAdvantage mile per $1 on other purchases.

  10. No foreign transaction fee.

Disadvantages

  1. $95 annual fee, NOT waived for the first year.

Recommended Application Time

  1. Barclays value the number of recent hard pulls a lot, we recommend you apply when you have less than 6 hard pulls in the past 6 months.
  2. We recommend you apply for this card after you have a credit history of at least one year.
  3. Existing cardmembers, existing accounts, and previous cardmember with accounts closed in the past 24 months may not be eligible for this offer.

Summary

Overall, this card is similar to the personal Barclaycard AA Aviator Red. The sign up bonus is very good and it only requires one purchase, so it’s a good card to get.
