BarclayCard Aviator Bonus Taking Forever to Arrive

Itís been 10 dats since I made my first purchase and paid off it and the annual fee, and although my account shows that I fulfilled the condition for the bonus, the miles havenít appeared in my American account yet.

What gives? How long has it taken others to receive this bonus?

It might take until the statement date, I don't remember clearly. They're not as quick as Amex.

You'll get it a day or two after your first statement closes.

I have a new card as well. My single purchase was $6, plus the $95 annual fee, and when I received my electronic statement I had a 500 point bonus (not sure what for) and the 6 for the charge, so 506 total. I paid the card yesterday so am waiting for my 60,000 point bonus. I believe the T&C says 4-6 weeks after the annual fee was paid. Will update.

Update. My introductory page shows I've been awarded the miles, but I haven't. I do have the cert. Funny, the T&C says 8-10 weeks for the cert and 4-6 for the miles. "Please allow 4-6 weeks for the AAdvantageģ bonus miles to be deposited into your AAdvantageģ Account and allow 8-10 weeks for delivery of the Companion Certificate after the qualifying purchase has posted to your Card Account and the annual fee has been paid."


First purchase achieved

01/28/2020

Pay annual fee

02/18/2020




You've just earned

60,000

AAdvantageģ bonus miles and an Introductory Companion Certificate

Update two. I received the 60,000 point bonus exactly one month (in this case, 29 days) after my original purchase was credited. Yay!

Mine was granted about 20 days after my first purchase, which was also the end of my first statement period.
