Credit Card Deal of the Month: April

I've decided I'm going to start writing a monthly post about the best credit card deal. No one pays me to market their products and I'm not huge into paying fees so you're going to get low fee cards with average spend amounts. I'll do my best to offer something that helps YOU and your travels.

This months credit card deal is the AAdvantage Aviator Red World Elite Mastercard. The odd thing about this card is that it's really flying under the radar. A lot of the fellow bloggers I follow aren't paid by Barclaycard so they don't post about it. The only reason I knew it existed was because I flew American Airlines recently.

American Airlines is in the process of switching their co-branded card from Citi Bank to Barclaycard. Citi Bank is on my S*** list right now so I'm glad to see them move.

The Aviator Red Mastercard is currently offering 40,000 AAdvantage miles after you make your first purchase within 90 days and pay the annual fee. At this rate your getting 40,000 miles for only $95! That's less than one cent per mile which is a FANTASTIC deal. This card also comes with a free checked bag, priority boarding, and a 10% mileage redemption refund.


If you're looking for a cheap flight this summer, now would be the perfect time to get this card. I've written about how you redeem miles on American Airlines, so take a look, take AAdvantage (get it? haha) and get yourself a cheap flight!
