There’s just one day left to use a popular – and unique – rebate available when using American AAdvantage miles to book a flight.

With certain American Airlines co-branded credit cards, you can get a rebate when using those AAdvantage miles, too. Cardholders of both the Citi AAdvantage Platinum Select World Elite Mastercard and the AAdvantage Aviator Red World Elite Mastercard from Barclays get 10% of their miles back on all award bookings, capped at earning 10,000 miles back per year in rebates.

But this rebate is ending for both cards for both cards after today, April 30, 2019. That comes as a result of as part of a slew of changes to both cards earlier this year.


AAdvantage Rebate


Citi and American actually toyed with ending this rebate perk almost a year ago. But they eventually backed away from ending the popular benefit. But that was was only a temporary reprieve.

So you’ve only got through Tuesday to earn 10% of the miles you spend back as a rebate. You can get up to 10,000 rebate miles a year, so make sure you earn them all back before it’s too late.


Our Analysis

This benefit was just too good to be true.

These intertwined benefits were popular for a reason. Getting 10% of the miles you use back after making an award booking was a nice touch. But it’s also unique among the major airlines with credit cards – neither Delta nor United offer a similar perk.

It’s worth noting that whether you have one or both of these cards, you’re still capped at earning a total of 10,000 miles in rebates back each year.


Bottom Line

You’ve got just a few days left to keep earning those 10% rebates before the window closes at the end of the day. Make those bookings now and save some miles while you can!

    Buyer beware….AA is by far the worst airline flying today. On a good day their operation is hanging by a thread. I find their AAdvantage program worthless. I cannot recommend the airline or their loyalty program.

    I never thought I’d say this in a million years but Spirit is outperforming American. Did you ever think you’d see the day Spirits operation far surpasses a legacy carrier such as American. People can poke fun of Spirit all they want but they are on time new planes and I love the big front seats. I don’t need frequent flier miles and a can of coke. I want a new airplane, a fair price and reliable operation. Yeah I agree, I started avoiding American at all costs the start of this year.
