This could be the best short-haul redemption (less than 2.50 hrs for me) (AA as selected airline) that any credit card company can offer while getting AA miles for reward flights.   I take 6 personal short-haul flights a year ranging from $ 190 – $ 290 I know the flight will need 19,000 – 29,000 MR points for each but I will be rebated 9,500 – 14,500 each time and w/ the 75k MR offer for bus plat I would will have close to 300k MR bank and I will be able to take all the flights for a round trip cost of 9,500 – 14,500 MR points, not bad.

 

I think this could be a big plus for individuals who fly on AA because AA has no transfer credit card partners other than alliance airline partners which can be a difficult.  Also, amex EDP, ED and PRG has category spend and EDP, ED 1.50x and 1.20x on non-category spend.
