It’s understandable if you get confused by the co-brand credit cards offered by American Airlines for their AAdvantage program. Both Barclays and Citi offer cards ranging from entry-level to luxury and even business cards. This dual structure dates back to the merger of American and US Airways, where each airline had its own credit cards. Barclays was the issuer of US Airways cards and the deal was that they would only be able to market their cards on planes and in airports, while Citi could market their cards everywhere else.
That’s still why, when you’re onboard American flights, you’ll get a pitch to sign up for the Barclays AAdvantage Aviator card instead of a Citi card.

While it has regularly offered a sign-up bonus worth enough points for several nights at all but the highest tier hotels, that’s no reason to keep the card. I’m not going to keep it because of the low-tier Discoverist status that it gives me either. All that’s worth is premium internet and a bottle of water daily.
The perk that keeps me paying the $95 annual fee every year is the free night certificate good at any category 1-4 Hyatt hotel that you get after your account anniversary date. While a category 1-4 hotel with Hilton or Marriott won’t get you much more than a roadside hotel, with Hyatt you can still stay at some nice places with that certificate.
Chase does have a restriction in place which helps them keep people from gaming the system.
