Citi AAdvantage Credit Cards: 50,000 Bonus Miles + $150 Bonus

Monday, December 12th, 2011

Citi AAdvantage Credit CardThrough January 31, 2012, you can apply for a new Citi AAdvantage credit card and receive 50,000 American Airlines AAdvantage bonus miles, a $150 statement credit and 2 Admirals Club one-day passes. This offer is valid on the Citi Platinum Select / AAdvantage Visa Signature card, the Citi Select / AAdvantage American Express card, as well as the CitiBusiness / AAdvantage Visa card.

To earn your 50,000 bonus miles, you’ll need to spend at least $3,000 within your first 4 months of opening your account. To receive your $150 statement credit, you’ll also need to make an eligible American Airlines purchase within your first year. Eligible purchases include flights or gift cards with AA as the merchant of record, but exclude car rentals, vacation packages, purchases of miles, duty-free purchases and AA Cargo products and services.

Under this offer, the first year’s annual fee is also waived. After the first year, the consumer cards carry an annual fee of $85 while the CitiBusiness AAdvantage card has an annual fee of $75.

While this offer is not as lucrative as the now expired 75,000 bonus AAdvantage miles deal, it’s currently the best available for these cards.

    Amit, it may be possible to get Citi to match this offer, but it typically isn’t as easy as it is with Chase.

    You’ll either need to send a secure message online to Citi or call them up. You will likely increase your chances of success if you call them up. It’s preferable to speak to the retentions department, as they will be more empowered to give you extra bonuses than a front-line rep would. You can reach Citi retentions directly (rather than having to be referred to them) by calling 800-444-2568. Good luck.

    Hi Cory,

    As to whether this link will still work after 1/31, I’m sorry, but I don’t have any inside knowledge on this particular offer, so I would just be guessing like you. As you mentioned, it’s common for these AA links to continue working even after their stated expiration, so it seems a reasonable gamble. Also, as you noted, there’s a good chance that a similar offer will reappear should this one get discontinued. Issuers are still aggressively pursuing new accounts, so chances are good that there will continue to be attractive offers, at least in the near term.

    Regarding the Admirals Club passes, you should expect to receive them in 1-3 months after approval. If it takes longer than that, you should contact Citi.

    Hi Mike,

    Yes, you should be eligible for the 50,000 bonus on the Visa as well.

    Alex, based on previous reports, most people have received their statement credits either on the same billing statement as the one they made their purchase on, or the next. So it should be pretty fast.
