Targeted American Airlines Aviator 2x Bonus Miles on Gas, Restaurants, & Department Stores

Barclays Bank is at it again with another targeted offer on the American Airlines Aviator card with 2x bonus miles on gas, restaurants, department stores, toy stores, and game stores. The offer is targeted and appears only to be valid to the person receiving it. You must register by October 20th, 2015 and it is good for all spending in the mentioned categories from October 1st to December 31st. The offer tops at a 2500 bonus miles which equates to $1250 spending in all the categories. What is unclear is if the bonus 2x miles is in addition to the normal 1x mile earned on all spending. The terms and conditions don’t really spell that out either. The way I interpret it is that this effectively makes it 3x miles on spending in the categories, 1x normally and then the 2x bonus miles. As usual the bonus miles will post 6 to 8 weeks after the promotion ends so don’t expect to see the extra miles until February 2016.

Barclays must love me as this gives me three targeted bonus offers on my card right now. That is absurd but awesome!

  • 15,000 bonus miles – Targeted, for $1500 spending in 3 months, promo ends October 31st
  • 2x miles gas, groceries, utilities – Retention Offer,   max 8000 points, promo ends November 28th
  • 2x bonus miles gas, restaurants, department stores, toy stores, and game stores, max 2500 miles, promo ends December 31st

All the offers together gives me potentially 25,500 bonus miles! Enough for domestic roundtrip ticket! Now to be realistic there is no way I will max the retention offer out but the other two promotions I could complete.

I don’t have a link to provide as the one sent to me is specific to my email address as it is in the url link. What you can do is to either call Barlcays (use the number on the back of the card) and ask if there are any bonus offers, surprisingly this works very well! But before you do that search your inbox for this title “Finish the year strong and earn bonus rewards.” to see if you were targeted.
