Amazing Retention Offer On My AAdvantage Aviator Red Card

by Zoe

This is by far one of the best retention offers I’ve received this year. I barely use my Barclays AAdvantage card and have total spend of just $2,100 this year.  Upon being billed my annual fee, I called Barclays to see if there was an offer available. Here’s what they presented:

  • 10 miles for every $1 spent on purchases up to $10,000
  • Bonus of 50,000 miles on $3K spend between today and – February 28th

I took the offer and plan to qualify for the 50,000 miles before the end of the year!

Have you received a similar offer with minimal spend and loyalty?

Yowza, that’s wonderful. Would you mind saying how much you’ve used the card?

Thats great. Similar spend profile as you for this card. I tried about 4 months ago and they told me to pound sand. Card started out as a Dividend Miles card. I downgraded to the freebie AA card (just to keep the account and credit line on my report) and now plan on spending exactly $1 every 4 months on this dog of a card as the earning/benefits are worthless.

My annual fee for this card was back in July and similar to you didn’t get any incentive to keep the card (it was also originally a Dividend miles card.)

My SO got the offer on her Aviator, but I did not on my Aviator. Instead, Barclay made the equivalent offer on my Choice hotel card.

did you mean up to $1000 at 10x points?, or up to 10,000 points with $1000 spending? otherwise $10,000 at 10x is a really big deal!
