current promotion, not sure how long it will last. Apply for any of this cards ( make sure you have your AA.com account set up first and your member number handy ), spend on it 2.5 ( rent, car, bills, gas etc.. easy ) and you will get 50K airmiles deposited to your AA account. It takes 45K to fly directly to Mendoza.
hope that helps some of you! good luck
By the way, you can apply for more than one card at this same time.. just letting you know ( but no more than 2 )
Of course this requires you to spend $2,500 when the plane tickets by themselves are less than $1600 from denver ($700 from Miami )
So, they weren't really free, unless you use the card to by the tickets and you give them to your friend, or something
