Get An Additional 500 Miles (50,500 Total) On The American Airlines Barclaycard Offer

The Offer

Direct link to offer

  • The standard bonus on the American Airlines Barclaycard is 50,000 points after your first purchase. If you use an application found in flight (basically just entering the six digit number in the above link) you get an additional 500 points.
  • One reader shared the six digit number given to them (non unique, think it’s tied to flight attendenant and I assume that flight attendant gets some sort of bonus, so feel free to share other numbers in the comments if your flight attendant does a good job. If anybody works for American Airlines, share the bonus structure in the comments as well).
    • 752657
    • 344744
  • According to this comment, the bonus structure is as follows:
    • $50 per approved application.
    • $20 bonus per application when you get 10 approved application in non-revolving two months period
    • Another $20 for 25 applications approved in the same period.


The Fine Print

  • 500 point bonus isn’t mentioned on the sign up page, but readers have confirmed it posting

Our Verdict

Obviously not the biggest improvement in offers, but every mile helps so might as well get an extra 500! As always read these things you should know about Barclaycard credit cards here. We will likely add this to our best credit card bonus page next update as well.

    Some troubling stuff from the T&C: “… (the offer) may not be available if you already have or have had an account with us.”

  2. Matthew says:

    I have a really good friend who’s a flight attendant. Greatly appreciate anyone who uses his number…

    [removed by request]

    Thanks DoC!

  3. Ken says:

    Are there any reports of people who already have the Aviator Red getting a 2nd card?

  4. Acslaterbro says:

    Doc can you please add 344744 to the list?

  5. Laura says:

    Just to be aware- I’ve had this card a week and the app/website have been down about 75% of the times I’ve tried to log in to the account. So one must have technological patience when dealing with Barclaycard right now.

    • Matthew says:

      Hmm, maybe it’s something with your computer? 🙁 I have been checking my account often since I’ve been doing the 15k spend, hasn’t been down once for me.

  6. Binbin says:

    Anyone able to apply a code retroactively? Approved last week but card has not come yet.

  7. matt says:

    Does anyone know if there is a waiting period between opening a new BarclayAA account and having just canceled the same account? I had the Aviator card for several years and just canceled last month. How long do I have to wait to open another and get the bonus?


    • Matthew says:

      I think with any card issuer, waiting 3 months should be safe, but it also depends upon your application habits/goals.

    • Matthew says:

      DoC recommends 6 months actually:

      Barclaycard card’s are churnable, meaning you can get the sign up bonus on cards more than once. If you get approved, you’ll get the sign up bonus. The difficult thing is getting the card approved, you’ll need to have cancelled the previous card and usually a wait for at least six months is required. In addition it’s a good idea to be putting spend through any existing Barclaycard credit cards before applying for a new card.

  8. Wings says:

    Promotion code 623979 will also work to get the bonus!

  9. Matt says:

    My Sister just started working for AA, her Code is 863099. Future thanks to all those who use her #.

  10. Brad says:

    Another code that works is 667608, thanks in advance!

  11. Vic says:


    Any idea whether there’s a 50,000 miles link that accept promo code?

    We probably need info from someone who recently took AA flight?

  12. Matthew says:

    New link is (shows 50k offer with ability to enter code)

  13. GL says:

    Applied at the 40k bonus 🙁

    However had a target offer of 10k for spending $750 in each of the months of May, June and July. Still quite miffed but softens the disappointment.

    • Matthew says:

      A friend of mine got a supervisor to match. He applied within the last couple of weeks before the new offer hit.

      • GL says:

        Yup the supervisor said able to match for new accounts opened in the last 30 days. Oh well. I might HUCA over the weekend.

  14. blue9 says:

    William, the “direct link” is broken and says offer expired. The new link is

  15. bob says:

    The Frontier Airlines card (also from Barclays) has this “feature” as well.

  16. TJ says:

    William, if I have the non AF Aviator card still open which was originally a US Airways card, can I get the 50k miles? It’s been way over 24 months. I don’t have a Red Aviator, but I do have an Aviator. Can you please give me any information? Thanks!

    • I think you have to close before getting the bonus again and usually wait between closing and opening the new account (~6 months) YMMV

      • TJ says:

        So just a DP, I applied with my current non-AF Aviator right after making this comment on the 9th. Went to pending. I called backdoor number just now and she approved me for the card even though I have a card in the family. So, kinda stoked! That’s my last card. I’m done for awhile. I went 2 years with no applications after doing a spree, and now I’m at 7.

        CSR 100k pts March
        Freedom Unlimited 15K pts April
        Amex SPG 40K puts May
        US Bank 50k pts May
        Chase United 70k plus $50 statement credit May
        Amex Hilton Surpass 100k June
        Barclays Red 50k + 500

        • TJ says:

          Finally just got off phone with her approving it. Account is showing online instantly. She did verify I’ll get the bonus points.

  17. CongestionCharge says:

    What happened to the recent comment links at the at the bottom of the page?

  18. Mark P says:

    I applied for the card using one of the codes found here and was denied unfortunately. But, I still received the 500 bonus miles that just hit my AA account!

  19. Deb says:

    I just took a flight and picked up an app because why not? Said we could fill out online later if we wanted too. Thought I’d at least check it out. code on the app given to me was 189866

  20. MarcoPolo says:

    Is there any disadvantage in linking SPG & Marriot award programs?

  21. Michael says:

    Another good FA has code 821093.

  22. Christine Ponder says:

    My Sister just started working for AA, her Code is 863058. Future thanks to all those who use her #.

  23. Rab says:

    When do the points post for this card ( in other words when does barclays charge the annual fee? Is it in the first statement or the 12th statement?)
    Please let me know. Thank you

      • Kimberly says:

        Hi Rab, it’s been a long time since I got this card, but I seem to remember the points posting more or less right after the first purchase (maybe give or take a week). They will charge the annual fee at the beginning, and they definitely aren’t going to make you wait 12 months. Hope that helps!

      • Joe says:

        Took over 2 statements for me. Got the card in February.

  24. Frequent Traveller says:

    I just applied for the card and used 658197 as my referral code and I was approved for 15500 dollar Aviator Card.
    Love their app and their service so far.

    Then enter 658197 on the top of the page and click on APPLLY NOW

  25. codeblue says:

    My sister is a flight attendant and her code is 640846

    She’s a pretty great flight attendant and has flown me quite a few awesome places using buddy passes.

    Apply here, then enter her code — 640846 ! Thanks all.
