Barclays is sending targeted offers to its AAdvantage Aviator card holders. Per this offer, starting July 01, 2015, you could earn 15,000 bonus miles when you spend $500 or more in each calendar month from July-01-2015 to Sep-30-2015.
This means, you are earning 15,000 bonus miles for a $1,500 spend ($500/month) and a total of $16,500 miles (only if $500 per month is spent)
This is a targeted offer, so look out for an email and postal mail to see if you are targeted. If you are targeted, you are automatically enrolled in the promotion.
Unfortunately, this card is no longer available after the merger of US Airways and American Airlines. Barclays stopped offering this card in April-2015, with a bang by offering a signup bonus if 50,000 bonus miles after first purchase
Things you should know:
- You will earn 15,000 bonus miles after you charge $500 or more in net retail purchases (purchases that are not returned or rescinded) each calendar month from July 1, 2015 through September 30, 2015.
- If you do not spend over $500 in any of the 3 months of the promotion you will not be eligible for any bonus miles as part of this offer.
- To receive your bonus miles, your account must be open, active and in good standing.
- Your bonus miles will appear on your statement up to 6-8 weeks after the end of the promotion
One of our team member received a different offer:
From July 1 through September 30, 2015, you’ll earn bonus miles when you use your AAdvantage Aviator Red MasterCard for supermarket, electronics store and drugstore purchases. Register by July 20, 2015, and you’ll earn 2 bonus miles for every $1 spent on eligible purchases that post to your account, up to 2,500 bonus miles.
This is also a targeted offer and you must register for this promotion if you are targeted. Check your email and postal mail if you are targeted
Barclays has at least 2 different promotions for its AAdvantage Aviator Red MasterCard holders with offers varying from 2,500 bonus miles to 15,000 bonus miles.
Unfortunately, both are targeted and Barclays method of selecting the card holders eligible for promotion is unknown, and the most likely reason one could think of would be how often you use the card.
