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 .

Cheap travel doesn’t come easier than this. The AAdvantage® Aviator® Red World Elite Mastercard® is currently offering 60,000 bonus points after spending…well, any amount on the card within the first three months.

That’s not a typo. All that you need to do to earn those bonus points is pay the $99 annual fee and then use the card just once. That could be as little as a coffee or a pack of gum. If it were me, I’d be buying a beer or two instead to celebrate an easy points haul.

What can 60,000 AAdvantage Points get you?

To explain how generous a deal that is, here’s what 60,000 AAdvantage Points can get you:

  • A round-trip from JFK to Milan (with 15,000 points left to spare)

  • Two domestic roundtrips

  • A one-way trip from NY to Bangkok 

  • Business class to Europe One-way

That’s a pretty astounding deal. On top of the bonus points, you’ll also grab preferred boarding and a free bag for everyone on your booking, up to four people. The earning potential on the card isn’t great, but when you’re clocking free flights for a cup of coffee, who really cares? You can always close it out afterward.
