If you’re an American Airlines credit card holder, you’re in luck: American has finally improved the benefits of their cards to match what Delta and United already offer. Starting today, you’ll get:
- First bag checked free
- Priority Boarding
- A 10% Rebate on any miles redeemed (they show up back in your account in about 6 weeks)
If you haven’t yet applied, the first year fee is waived, but they’ve increased the fee to $95 from $85.
Although it is not wildly obvious from the language in the marketing materials, if you already have a card these new benefits DO apply.
50,000 mile bonus has been around for ages, but I can’t get the links to work anymore (if anyone has a WORKING APPLICATION PAGE for the 50k link, please send and I’ll update). Until then, here’s the 30k bonus link after $1k in spend (it’s not an affiliate link).
