    No need to feel guilty. They wouldn’t put those answers on the survey if they didn’t expect someone to select them. 🙂

    That is hilarious!

    Bonus miles/points are the sole reason for my applying or keeping a card. Just signed up for the Jet Blue card just because I needed 10k true blue points…bought a hamburger today to activate the bonus and I will never use it again. 🙂

    i think you’re being too honest… seriously that cant be good for the guy in charge of these ‘marketing’ programs?

    too honest? no such thing when a company asks for your opinion!

    Where do you credit your AA miles to? Just curious what other good uses are out there.

    As an AA EXP, I do find it troubling that they mention upgrade priority.

    The $95 annual fee for the card starts to feel more like an annual upgrade tax when they start coupling it with elite status.

    I’d hate for the program to go the way of Delta where you have to maintain an ever increasing number of Delta cards in order to score an upgrade or an award ticket.

    Discount on in-flight Internet would be nice, I have to say. Good benefit for elites who already get all the other stuff anyway.

    Huh, that’s good info, I completely forgot that Delta points can be sent to Alaskan.

    Hilarious!
    I like that 20% mileage bonus on international, if indeed it is on the miles flown for the trip, not as earned by the credit card spend.

    I would consider an AA credit card regardless, as I like the airline and their FF program, but double miles on dining would basically seal the deal for me, as a big chunk of my spending is on dining.

    A waiver of award redeposit fees would definitely motivate me, but I see that’s not one of the options.

    If you look carefully, the Chase cards absolutely destroy the Citicards. I own the MP Club and Sapphire Preferred cards, and no AA card even comes close in mileage bonuses, insurance coverage, etc. and that’s coming from someone who flies AA primarily.

    Am curious to know if responses like yours will help them justify tougher restrictions on who gets the miles, like higher minimum spends etc
