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.
