    I applied for the AA Mastercard yesterday through AA website. The offer yesterday was for 30000 miles and $100 statement credit. Is there a way I can get them to match this offer? If yes, how do I go about doing it? Thanks

    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.

    Thanks for the info!

    3 quick Q’s …

    Any word on whether this link will still work after the stated 1/31 expiration (as most Citi AA links have in the past)?

    Any word on whether Citi/AA will run this promo again right after it ends? (I think they had the same offer through 10/31/11, and then ran it again, so I’m wondering if they’ll do that again.)

    After being approved, how soon will I receive the admirals club passes?

    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.

    If i already have an advantage mastercard, am i eligible to for the 50,000 bonus on the visa?

  • ccwatcher

    Hi Mike,

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

  • Alex

    How long after I make the AA purchase would the statement credit take to post?

  • ccwatcher

    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.

    If I cancel my AAdvantage Master Card how long do I have to wait to be eligible again to apply and get the 50000?

    Does anyone happen to have a printout of this offer? (Citi Platinum Select / AAdvantage Visa Signature card, 50,000 miles for $3,000 spend in 4 mo, and $150 credit)
    I’m trying to get Citi to give me credit but they are demanding proof, and since the link is dead, I can’t print it out.

  • I like the Visa card, and AAdvantage miles. ANY OFFERS OF BONUS AA MILES WITH VISA?
