The Daily Navigator strives to help you make the best decisions in travel. While we produce content according with strict editorial integrity this post may contain references to partner products. Here’s a full explanation for how our team makes money .

American Airlines has a huge limited-time 80,000-point intro bonus on two of its co-branded cards, the City AAdvantage Executive World Elite Mastercard and the AAdvantage Aviator World Elite Business Mastercard.

While a business card might seem like the wrong choice for many people, it doesn’t exclude as many as you’d assume. Freelance writers, small businesses, Uber drivers, and even babysitters are all technically eligible to have a business credit card.

The Aviator’s bonus requirements are super easy to hit, only requiring $2000 of spending in three months, along with a $95 annual fee. The World Elite needs a heftier, $5,500 in three months, but also commands a $450 annual fee. An added bonus is that it does give you entry to the typically $650-a-year Admirals Club.

Here’s what those 80,000 AAdvantage Points could grab you.

  • One-Way Business Class New York to Hong Kong 

  • One Way Business Class Dallas to Sydney

  • Two Economy Roundtrips from JFK to Madrid 

  • Round trip Business Class LAX to Peru

If you’re a business owner of any size, you have plenty of expenses to cover. Meaning that it might be time to make your business spending work towards your vacation
