Some folks have mentioned, if you don’t see this offer in your account, you should still be able to register (as long as your account is in good standing) by calling 866-419-0881.

Step 3 – Spend

Spend on your Barclaycard US Airways OR American Airlines card from through June 30, 2015, and you’ll earn a 50% bonus.  You can earn up to 10,000 bonus miles.

The bonus miles should be credited to your account within 6 to 8 weeks after the promotion ends.

Note:  You will NOT earn the bonus on miles earned from other promotions

The New Barclaycard American Airlines Cards

I’ve written about the Barclaycard US Airways card being switched to the new American Airlines card.  You should receive your new card between April 1, 2015, and July 15, 2015.

Most folks will receive the Barclaycard American Airlines Red card.  Some of the perks that come with this card include:

  • 1st checked bag free for you and up to 4 traveling companions
  • Priority boarding
  • $100 flight discount after spending $30,000 in a calendar year
  • 2X American Airlines miles on American Airlines & US Airways purchases
  • 10% of redeemed miles back (up to 10,000 miles per year)

There will still be an $89 annual fee.  Check out my full review for more details on this card.

We previously thought there would be only 2 versions of the American Airlines card.  But according to, View from the Wing, there will actually be 4 new Barclaycard American Airlines cards coming soon!

Note: These cards will NOT be open to new applications.  They are only available to folks who already have the US Airways card.

Again, the new cards will start being sent out starting on April 1, 2015, so there isn’t much time left to apply for the Barclaycard US Airways card (and earn the sign-up bonus) before it’s no longer available!

We don’t get a commission for this card, but Emily and I always tell you about the best deals!

Bottom Line

The Barclaycard US Airways card will soon be switched to the new American Airlines Aviator card.

And when you register for the promotion, you can earn 50% bonus miles (up to 10,000 miles) on spending with either card through June 30, 2015.  This is a great deal and it only takes a few minutes to sign-up!

The miles will post 6-8 weeks AFTER the promotion ends is what it says, which is June 30, 2015. I called Barclay to see how to register and I was already registered. If you log into your account, it should pop up on your main screen to register which is what it did for my husband’s account. If not, give them a call.

I can’t seem to find the 50% bonus offer after logging into my new Barclay’s US Airways MasterCard account.

Any suggestions on where it is I should be looking for this great offer?

I signed up but have not received double miles. Am corresponding with Barclay right now. At first, they said that they are “unable to locate the specific promotion for double points.”

does this mean if I use the barclay shopping portal, the boost points won’t count if my card is activated to receive the +50% more miles offer?

@ Jessica Having a Barclays AA card will have no effect at all on applying for a Citi AA card. If anything, Citi will be eager to take your business away from Barclays by giving you a Citi card. 🙂
