Applied For A Citi American Airlines Select Card? Ask To Be Matched To 75,000 Miles

At the moment there are the following four offers on the Citi American Airlines cards (seems the business offers no longer work):

You can also get 75,000 miles on the Citi Executive card. I’m not sure if this is working for people that applied for the offers with the statement credit attached, but there are multiple reports of people successfully getting matched to a 75,000 mile offer (data points: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5). What’s even better is that some people that have already received matches to higher bonuses are receiving a full match (e.g they have gone from 60,000 to 65,000 and receive 5,000 bonus points. Asked to be matched for this offer and receive another 15,000 miles). I’d recommend you do this right now if you’ve applied for the card in the last four months, if you’re not successful I’d just hang up and call again. Note: Secured messaging doesn’t seem to be having much success, so call instead.

Please share your datapoints in the comments below.

Sent SM to them this morning (statement for my bonus closed yesterday). Application was for 70K after $4K, asking to match to to 75K. They said “we have raised this request and we will get back to you ASAP. Expect a call from us regarding it. Our miles team will go through your account and let you know their decision in 3-4 business days.” Maybe they’re checking for churning now?

He did add 2K points “as a goodwill gesture”, but hoping that’s not a sign they’ll deny the match.

Applied for targeted 65K no-24-month-language offer for CitiBusiness AA Plat Select. I just received it, and am still working on min spend. SM’d to match (and all I said was “saw higher offer”, which is true — made no mention of where). In 24 hours got notified they were adding 10K to my account. Very nice. Thanks for guidance above.

I hadn’t met minimum spend yet and SM matched my 60k to 75k. Can’t argue with extra free money.

I was told via SM that I had to prove I was solicited. They asked me to mail proof. LOL, should I try again?

Got 75K match on the AA business today. Applied under the 60K for $3,000 spend offer just under a month ago. Said 15K points will be in my account in 1-2 months and they gave me a reminder I need to meet the 3K minimum spend for the other 60K bonus points. Sweet! Thanks to the DoC team again!!
