It depends how much you fly and how you value its benefits.

If you have to pay once for overweight, because you don't have a status, will possibly be way more then $140.

No extra weight with a Gold? That's disappointing.

I hope you didn't pay money for the offer from the guy on FT from FoundersClub, you wont get anything.
It has now been officially investigated by the FT mods and it is 100% false, there is absolutely no relationship between Founders and AA.

Not even for EXP.
2x50 and that's it.
OneWorld has no extra baggage benefit, one of the reasons it's light-years behind Star.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

 If a person will be flying a few times ayr @ $25 a bag and $35 for the 2nd the $140 can be a cheap way around the bag fees, then theres no Close in <21 days fees for award tkting, access to AClubs when flying Intl. Bonus RDMs when on a paid tkt. So id say if a person will be flying AA enough times  the $140 can save them alot more then the $140 and is a very god deal as long as its a legit deal

So if I managed to get 7 free tickets with BA miles on AA (domestically), will the card give me 2 suitcses for each one of us? OR does it have to initiate as AA ticket?

When flying on AA status gets you free bags.

Sorry for being ignorant, but you can buy that status for $140? I searched google and don't see where $140 comes in.
