Approved for AAdvantage with 100k Mile Bonus!

Postby PowerMan572 » Mon Mar 10, 2014 7:18 pm

I was on the fence if I would be approved for this card since I had been approved for Barclaycard Arrival, Amex BCP, and Cap1 Venture card last month. The only reason why I was intrigued is solely for the 100k bonus. I figured I didn't have any other cards in sight for the near future, so if I apply and don't get approved no sweat. I have the main 3 cards I wanted anyway.

I applied online and was told I had to call in immediately. All they wanted to know was if I wanted to add my cell phone # to the application! I stated that the number already listed on the app is my cell phone # :smileyhappy:

She then asked what I was thinking for a credit limit. Since my Cap1 is $5k, I just threw out that number. She asked if higher would be OK and I said absolutely! She placed me on hold and came back with $7,500!

All other cards will be on hold for the next 3 months or until I meet the $10k spending limit threshold (whichever comes first.)

I am going to New York (JFK) in May, so the airport lounge access will be nice there. However, I will be closing the card/or downgrading the card come February, 2015, since $450 annual fee is way too expensive. Not sure if these card companies try to get you to stay and sweeten the deal... but I would possibly think about staying if they threw in some kind of incentive. This is my first card with airport lounge access.

Don't forget that you get a $200 statement credit as well so the annual fee is pretty much $250! Congrats on the new card!

Yup! That's just for the first year though. I'm really bummed though. As mentioned, I'm going to JFK in May. Here I'm thinking I'll get to use the lounge. Well according to this page, I won't be able to since JFK is a Flagship lounge. COME ON!

American Airlines AAdvantage Executive Platinum/Emerald customers traveling on solely North American itineraries do not qualify for Flagship Lounge access.

Executive Platinum/Emerald is an AAdvantage/OneWorld level. It's unrelated to the Executive card. I don't know if you'll have access or not, but don't base it on that page.
