Additional Benefits of your Account
25% Statement Credit for Inflight Purchases
Primary cardmembers whose Accounts are in good standing will qualify for a 25% savings on eligible inflight Purchases. Eligible Purchases include the inflight purchase of food and beverages on American Airlines operated flights when purchased using the Account. Savings does not apply to any other inflight Purchases, such as wireless internet access or inflight Entertainment. This offer is available on eligible flights as long as supplies last. This benefit applies to domestic flights marketing and operated by American Airlines and operated by Compass Airlines, LLC, Envoy Air Inc., ExpressJet Airlines, Inc., Republic Airline Inc., SkyWest Airlines, Inc., Air Wisconsin Airlines Corporation, Mesa Airlines, Inc., PSA Airlines, Inc., Piedmont Airlines, Inc., or Trans States Airlines, LLC where credit card transactions are accepted. This benefit will not be available for travel on codeshare flights booked with an American Airlines flight number but operated by another airline. This savings will appear as an Account statement credit 6-8 weeks after the Purchase is posted to the Account. Additional terms, conditions and restrictions may apply. Applicable terms and conditions are subject to change without notice.
Reduced Mileage Awards
The Reduced Mileage Awards program allows primary cardmembers to redeem AAdvantage® miles for discounted round trip or one-way travel on MileSAAver® awards to destinations selected every other month. The MileSAAver® discount is 5,000 AAdvantage® miles round trip or 2,500 AAdvantage® miles one-way for this Account if travel booked is greater than 500 miles in distance. If travel booked is less than or equal to 500 miles in distance, which qualifies for a short haul MileSAAver award, the mileage discount will be 2,000 AAdvantage® miles round trip or 1,000 AAdvantage® miles one-way for this Account.
Redemption of AAdvantage® miles toward Reduced Mileage Awards applies only to bookings made by phone through American Airlines Reservations or through airport or city ticket centers. An award service charge fee may apply per person. Flights and availability are subject to change without notice. For the complete list of Reduced Mileage Awards, visit aa.com/reducedmileageawards.
Elite Qualifying Dollars
The primary cardmember may earn $3,000 Elite Qualifying Dollars ("EQDs") after spending $25,000 in Net Purchases that post to the AAdvantage® Aviator Blue account from January 1st through December 31st each calendar year. A primary cardmember may earn the maximum $3,000 EQDs per calendar year through the AAdvantage® Aviator Blue account, unless the cardmember has already earned the maximum number of EQDs through other AAdvantage® co-branded credit cards. EQDs earned are in addition to the AAdvantage® miles earned for Net Purchases made on the AAdvantage® Aviator Blue account. Net Purchases exclude returned goods and services, cash advances, convenience checks, transferred balances, credits, fees and interest charges. Net Purchases made by authorized users through additional cards on the primary cardmember's AAdvantage® Aviator Blue account will count toward the primary cardmember's qualifying spend. EQDs earned as a result of this benefit will typically be posted to the primary cardmember's AAdvantage® account 6-8 weeks after meeting the spend requirement. EQDs will not count toward Million MilerSM status. EQDs cannot be redeemed for award travel, AAdvantage® miles or any other AAdvantage® program awards. EQDs earned with the AAdvantage® Aviator Blue account qualify toward the primary cardmember's AAdvantage® program elite status earning requirements each calendar year, subject to the limits under the Reward Rules and the AAdvantage® program. Full details on elite status and qualifications are available in the AAdvantage® section of aa.com.
