Having your AA number associated is enough. This is unlike UA, which does require you to pay with the Chase card to get the benefits.

Back before I had status, I got the benefits even though I had to pay with my company card.

This is specifically why I got an AA-branded credit card. Some years I have status and get the benefits; other years, I do not. The credit card gives me priority boarding so I have some place to put my carryon.

Never had an issue

It's been my experience that upon pulling out the card it doesn't matter where I'm flying to or if I directly booked with AA, once they see the card they treat me and my companions as if we were flying first class.
