This Long-Lasting, Limited-Time Offer Is Still Alive And Kicking – 75K Miles

75K miles

This long-lasting, limited-time offer has still not expired despite lasting quite a long time. If you want 75K miles, check out this deal before it goes.

Earlier this year, the “limited-time offer” on the AA Executive AAdvantage card came out – 75,000 AA miles after spending $7,500 in 3 months. Limited-time offer is something that you would expect to mean, you know, limited-time. But, it has lasted all the way from July 1 until now. While it was “supposed” to have ended the other day, it appears that it was just the affiliate links that ended with the offer.

The last, last, last chance for this offer appears to be here! 🙂

American Airlines has this card displayed prominently on their home page and they have added language that suggests it actually will be going away soon. If you have been on the fence about this card and the offer before, it may be time to move on it.

It is just funny to me how long card issuers can stretch out “limited-time offer” on their offers. A 5 month long offer is a long time, but not nearly as long as the over 1 year language on the Barclaycard Arrival and its Limited-time offer (which ended up being permanent).

Valuable Card’s Benefits And Miles

The annual fee of $450 up front is a steep one, but if you have a use for these miles, it can be looked at as buying a cheap, premium cabin ticket. My best flight ever, the Etihad A380 Apartment Class from Abu Dhabi – Sydney, was paid for with 60,000 AA miles. That would still leave you with a 15,000 mile balance (actually, 22,500 miles after the spending). Spending $450 for a ticket like that is pretty good!

Also consider the fact that Global Entry reimbursement ($100) comes with this and that brings the effective annual fee down to $350 for the first year. You will also have Admiral’s Club membership for the AA lounges as well. So, this card can give value but make sure you can swing the $7,500 in spending before applying. It does look like this is the last chance on the card. My guess would be it expires by November 1.

To get the 75,000 mile bonus, you must spend $7,500 in the first 3 months. That is a high amount so make sure you can swing it before you apply for the card.

The card itself carries a lot of perks, especially for AA flyers. Unfortunately, there is no statement credit this time around. But, in its place, there is a Global Entry reimbursement (worth $100) that can help to offset that a bit.
