Part I: How to Earn 237,000 American Airlines Miles

Right now it's easy to earn a boatload of American Airlines miles quickly.

Earn 40k Miles For Paying One Annual Fee on this Business Card

The Barclaycard AAdvantage Aviator Red World Elite MasterCard comes with 60,000 American Airlines miles, and you don't even have to spend a large amount of money to earn the bonus. In fact, you hardly have to spend anything--only one purchase is required, along with the payment of the $95 annual fee--to trigger the 60k bonus. Little did you know Barclaycard also issues a business version of this card! It comes with 40,000 American Airlines miles after one purchase and paying the $95 annual fee.

New Uber Card is Not Very Uber-y (But Gives Major Cash Back!)

Barclaycard is teaming up with Uber to issue a credit card called the Uber Visa Card. While technically co-branded with the ride share company, there are almost no Uber related benefits, which is kind of confusing. Nevertheless this card, which will earn rewards in the form of cash back, has impressive cash back rates that (in most ways) beat other cash back cards.

You can't apply for the Uber Visa quite yet.

Capital One Venture Card’s New 50k Bonus Worth $500

Capital One issues a travel rewards card called the Capital One Venture Card. It comes with a newly elevated 50,000 bonus points offer for spending $3,000 on your new card within three months of account opening.

The Capital One Venture Card earns a type of reward they call a mile, but there's no outsized value to be found as they're not like an airline mile you can redeem on award space. One Capital One mile = 1 cent towards travel expenses.

Arrival+ 50k Bonus Ending Tomorrow Morning

UPDATE 9/18: The 50k Arrival mile bonus is changing tomorrow morning at some point (posting this update Monday evening, September 18). I just applied myself and after speaking to the reconsideration department at Barclays, learned that I have to send in three forms of ID to verify myself--not surprising as I set a fraud alert on my credit report last week thanks to the Equifax data breach.

Buy Two Wyndham Nights, Get One Free

Wyndham is running a promotion with Masterpass that awards those that pay for a Wyndham reservation through MasterPass 7,500 points per paid stay. One night at any Wyndham costs 15,000 points, so paying for two nights will earn you enough Wyndham points for one free award night anywhere.

The promotion claims that...

...so we're not sure how long it will last.

Important Conditions

You must complete your paid stays by October 31 to earn the bonus points.
Stays are defined by consecutive nights, not the number of nights. A stay can be one night or more.
