We are an independent publisher. Our reporters create honest, accurate, and objective content to help you make decisions. To support our work, we are paid for providing advertising services. Many, but not all, of the offers and clickable hyperlinks (such as a “Next” button) that appear on this site are from companies that compensate us. The compensation we receive and other factors, such as your location, may impact what ads and links appear on our site, and how, where, and in what order ads and links appear. While we strive to provide a wide range of offers, our site does not include information about every product or service that may be available to you. We strive to keep our information accurate and up-to-date, but some information may not be current. So, your actual offer terms from an advertiser may be different than the offer terms on this site. And the advertised offers may be subject to additional terms and conditions of the advertiser. All information is presented without any warranty or guarantee to you.

This page may include: credit card ads that we may be paid for (“advertiser listing”); and general information about credit card products (“editorial content”). Many, but not all, of the offers and clickable hyperlinks (such as a “Apply Now” button or “Learn More” button) that appear on this site are from companies that compensate us. When you click on that hyperlink or button, you may be directed to the credit card issuer’s website where you can review the terms and conditions for your selected offer. Each advertiser is responsible for the accuracy and availability of its ad offer details, but we attempt to verify those offer details. We have partnerships with advertisers such as Brex, Capital One, Chase, Citi, Wells Fargo and Discover. We also include editorial content to educate consumers about financial products and services. Some of that content may also contain ads, including links to advertisers’ sites, and we may be paid on those ads or links.

American Airlines Credit Card Welcome Bonuses Decreasing?

Folks are being told by American Airlines flight attendants that on January 31, 2018, the increased welcome bonuses on some American Airlines cards will be ending.

The current offers for the cards in question are:

The information for the Citi AAdvantage Platinum Select card has been collected independently by Million Mile Secrets. The card details on this page have not been reviewed or provided by the card issuer.

We expect the increased bonus for the Barclaycard AAdvantage Aviator to drop on January 31, 2018.  But we don’t know whether the Citi American Airlines Platinum Select will follow suit.  And we don’t know what the bonuses will be changed to.

Bottom Line

With the current bonuses on the Barclaycard AAdvantage Aviator and Citi American Airlines Platinum Select, you’ll earn 60,000 American Airlines miles after meeting the minimum spending requirements.  So if you were considering these offers you may want to apply soon.
