Save $50 On American Airlines Flight With Mastercard

Save $50 On American Airlines Flight With Mastercard

Here’s a potentially valuable offer if you fly American Airlines with any frequency…

American Airlines Mastercard $50 off deal

Mastercard has launched an offer for booking American Airlines flights. AAdvantage members who use a Mastercard to book an American Airlines flight on aa.com can receive $50 off their next ticket:

  • This promotion is valid for American AAdvantage members who book between August 23 and September 30, 2021
  • You must register for this promotion
  • Each AAdvantage member can only take advantage of this once (but if you have multiple AAdvantage members in one reservation, each can take advantage of it if they register, even if they’re all on the same reservation)
  • Mastercard debit, personal credit, and small business credit cards are eligible, so you don’t need to use a co-branded AAdvantage credit card
  • The first 100,000 people who complete this process will be emailed a $50 code, and will receive the gift code around November 11, 2021, six to eight weeks after the offer has ended
  • The code can be used for flight purchases between November 11, 2021, and March 15, 2022 (flights must be taken within that timeframe as well)
  • The fare must be a minimum of $60, not including taxes and fees, and must be within the United States

This is a slight hassle, but worth it

If you fly American Airlines with any frequency, I do think this promotion is worth taking advantage of, though there are a couple of downsides:

  • You have to pay with a Mastercard, and there aren’t any Mastercard products that allow you to maximize your points on airfare purchases while also offering travel protection; however, for one ticket I’ll use the Citi Prestige rather than the Amex Platinum for an airfare purchase (both offer 5x points, but the latter offers travel protection)
  • There are quite a few restrictions and hoops to jump through — you won’t know if you’re among the first 100K people (though I can’t imagine that limit will be reached), there’s a limited window for booking tickets, you don’t get the $50 voucher immediately, and you can’t combine the voucher with other American vouchers (and many of us have lots of those nowadays, given free cancelations)
This promotion could be worth taking advantage of

Bottom line

There’s a new promotion from Mastercard offering a $50 American Airlines voucher when you book a flight in the coming weeks and pay with a Mastercard. There are some hoops to jump through, but this offer should be worth it for most AAdvantage members, in my opinion.

Do you plan on taking advantage of this Mastercard promotion?

    If I book with miles and use the MasterCard to pay for the taxes/fees will it still count? At the end of the day it shows as an AA purchase in AA.com

    Lucky, you state that the fare must be a minimum of $60 before taxes and fees, but the terms state, "Minimum Fare Value of $60 in order for the Gift to apply. Taxes and fees apply."

    I take this to mean that that taxes and fees can count toward the $60 minimum. Is this incorrect?

    I have booked a trip today for 11/5 from DFW to SJU. Will this qualify ?

    I saw this yesterday. I think its a very slimy promotion.
    Its good for the first 100,000 people only. And you won't know right away if you can still claim the promotion. You'll know only well after committing to the purchase. Likely if you were to book now you're not one of the first 100k. So basically its a "thanks suckers for booking with AA, you're getting nothing".

  5. Nando

    It asks for a aadvantage number when you register

  6. Doug

    Will the voucher be tied to your AA account or could it be used for someone else?
