2019 Program for Miles
Regarding a 2019 plan of attack for [B]OneWorld[/B] points…..
Previously, I used the Aviator Silver card to garner 6K EQDs and 5K EQMs on everyday purchases. The Aviator terms will change in 2019.
2018 airline tickets, I used the AMEX Plat for the 5X points. I used that Aviator Card for all other daily purchases.
Is there another approach that is better in 2019 than what I was doing in 2018? – for OneWorld American Airlines EQMs /EQDs?
I can’t suggest a better strategy given the current state of affairs with the AAdvantage program however (and I don’t place a lot of weight on this), a Barclay representative told me last week that new benefits for the Aviator Cards will be announced soon so I’d hold the card and not cancel.
Before these recent changes were announced, I took out the free AA Citi Mileup Card which gives 2 miles on groceries.
