One of the best deals going is the 100k Citi AA card (not my link at bottom of page). I have one, Lisa has one & just about anyone who has heard of the deal has one. After spending a hefty $10,000 you end up with 110,000 points and they credit you back $200 of the $450 first year fee so you are net buying the points for $250 or .0023 cents each. That is a VERY good price.
The other EQUALLY good deal right now is the US Air Mastercard that gives you 40,000 points after your first purchase and paying the non waived annual fee of $89. Thus, if you buy a 10 cent gum ball on the card let’s say, you are buying these points for just .0022 cents each or basically the same price per point as the Citi card deal.
Bottom line is this; for $339 in annual fees you are able to, after minimum spend requirements on the two cards, get 150,000 points that will all be American Airlines Advantage points very soon. That is really frequent flyer value! – Rene
