Here's something to keep in mind with AA credit cards. The airline cards all tout the free checked bag benefit. However, the AA benefit only works for domestic flights. If you're flying to a foreign country in the Caribbean, for instance, you'll be paying bag fees in coach. This is true even if you get their most expensive card. Delta and United give you the free bag on any flight.
