No. They are only for those that got converted from the US Airways card, they are not available for new card members.

It's been really easy to get the fee waived. And they do have have quarterly bonuses of three points per a dollar. And target you for spend bonuses if you don't use the card often.

Please advise, I HUCA'd 2 times and both reps told me they cannot waive the AF on my Aviator because it goes to supporting all my benefits... Thoughts on how to get it waived?

Tell them you have the citi aa card which has the same benefits, So if you can't waive the fee you'll cancel the card.

Go do an M$ charge for the entire credit limit.  When they deny the charge, call the them up, ask for a supervisor, and complain how they embarrassed you, how you have the credit line for a reason, how you pay an AF for a reason, why didn't AMEX deny the charge.  Then get the miles credited for the failed transaction, and the AF waived.

Do you guys always ask for bonus points whenever a transaction doesn't go through? Feel odd asking because at the end of the day, they're doing it to protect us in case someone stole the card...

You're joking right?  The bank is liable for fraud unless you can be proven to be grossly negligent.

When the CSR's tell me they declined a charge to "protect me", I cut them off and ask them to please not lie to me and remind them who is truly liable (the bank).  The bank's actions are never to protect you, always themselves.  Then you point out I have xx,xxx limit to use, I pay an AF for the privilege, you embarrassed me, you inconvenienced me, and AMEX gladly accepted the charge Because AMEX always does).

I've gotten Barclays, Citi, Chase and Disco to all give me the rewards for denied charges.  And I got Barclays to waive the Aviator AF AFTER they gave me 15,000 courtesy miles.

I guess you learn new things every day. Never thought of it that way, but I'll definitely keep that in mind in the future. Had some MS charges declined on two separate Chase United accounts over the past few days so going to try and call them and squeeze some miles out of them.

Update: Swing and a miss. Guy basically said "I doubt it was that embarrassing because most people know that banks are very careful with fraud, so I'm not going to give you any bonus miles."
