New Barclays 5,000 AAdvantage Miles Bonus Offer for Spend

by Adam

For years, Barclays has offered 15,000 bonus miles for spending $500 or $750 every month for 3 months after a period of inactivity on the US Airways / AAdvantage Aviator Red MasterCard. Back in November, I received a similar offer, but for 30,000 bonus miles and a TON more spend ($2,500 per month for six months). The newest offer returns to the $500 spend level, but the bonus miles have been reduced to 5,000.

Earn 5,000 bonus miles – here’s how it works:
1) No registration is required if you receive the mailer or email
2) Spend $500 or more in new purchases using your AAdvantage® Aviator™ Red MasterCard® each calendar month in March, April, May and you’ll earn 5,000 bonus miles

Besides the lower mileage bonus, this may interfere with canceling your card. Remember, Barclays only refunds the annual fee within 60 days after the charge hits your statement.

Offer is valid for select cardmembers and is not transferable. You will earn 5,000 bonus miles after you charge $500 or more in net retail purchases each calendar month from March 1, 2016 through May 31, 2006. If you do not spend $500 or more in any of the 3 months of the promotion you will not be eligible for any bonus miles as part of this offer. Your bonus miles will appear on your statement up to 6-8 weeks after the end of the promotion.

What the heck. I stopped getting these offers about a year/year and a half ago. And since then tried to put more, then less, then none, then more, spending on the card to trigger the offer again but to no avail. I am about to give up on them completely.

Just received 15k mile offer with same spend requirements as the 5k offer. I rarely use this card but recently made a small purchase on it.

I got this same 5,000 mile offer last fall for $500 spend in Oct/Nov/Dec….I was jealous of your 30K offer!

Never got a single offer like this. Gosh, our monthly health insurance premium alone is more than that. But that charge always go towards a minimum spend or incentive of some sort. I’ll even give it to the CHASE United VISA at a point per dollar. So… no bonus offer again, Barclays? Then back in the drawer ya go.
