Editors Review

Pros

  • Main advantage that can offset a high annual fee is the Admirals Club membership (although it can be purchased directly at Admirals Club online for about the same price).
  • Sign up bonus of 50,000 AAdvantage points for spending $5,000 in the first three months of the account
  • 10,000 miles annual bonus after spending $40,000

Cons

  • $450 annual fee
  • Relatively high for an excellent credit purchase APR 15.24%

Verdict

If you plan to buy Admirals Club membership, this card is for you. Otherwise, there are better options for general travel cards – Barclaycard Arrival is one of the examples of a good travel card.
