    Just got two cc's (VISA + American Express) in the mail to replace my old VISA card. It looks like I get 20% extra AAdvantage miles if I register them. Not sure why they selected me, but I was hoping to cancel my VISA and apply for an Amex to get bonus miles!

    Did you get this offer separately or was it included with the CCs?

    No, I received both Visa and Amex on one sheet and a notice of the 20% extra miles if I register them both. There is no additional fee to have both.

    the normal phone call using the number on the sticker affixed to the credit cards (same # on both cards). I think this offer is for pre-selected customers.

    Family member also got the same, renewing AA MC and got the Amex along with it. Didn't see anything about a bonus 20% miles, will have to ask CSR about it.

    So I received these two cards in the mail yesterday - does that mean I qualify for the 20K bonus? No bonus means I'll cancel the Amex card. Odd that they would send me a credit card that I didn't apply for.

    I got two cards in the mail too, but this definitely looks better.

    Did they pull your credit report on this one? I don't want to get another inquiry on my report. Thanks.

    I want to know this too. I have two AA MC and one AA Amex. I would love to get another 20/40k miles without any inquiries.

    I signed up for this AmEx card today and received 20K for $500 spend and 1.2 miles per dollar (confirmed when I called). I had not activated the two cards I received in the mail yet.

    I didn't get the 20k for $500 because it was an existing account. I did get the 5k however.
