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.

I was denied by SM. Strange response as if the CSR was unaware of matching even existed.

“We received your request to apply the new account offer to your existing account. Our solicitations are used as a way to encourage new business or to offer an additional account to our customers. When you opened your account, you would have received any applicable offers specific to your application. Therefore, we are unable to apply the incentives mentioned in your solicitation to your existing account.”

I got denied as well. Do we have to call in for this?

I have been denied via SM twice (first when matching to 65k, and just this morning when matching to 75k). In both cases I was successful in politely saying that I have a friend who was matched to the offer and I would appreciate consistency in this policy. Both times a different person responded and granted my request!

Last time I was asked for proof of the offer but gave basically that same response and had no problem the second time.

Stupid question: what number? Just the number on the back of the card?

curious to know if there’s any match from 50K directly to 75K? or do you need to do it in lock-step? 50->60->65->75?

If you ask for the match from 60 to 65, do you have to spend an additional amount in the 3 months?

I applied and got the Citi advantage MasterCard for 60k bonus but I made a mistake in. It paying attention to the term because I converted one of my other Citi advantage Amex card to Citi Costco card 6 months ago. It has been 10 days since I received the new card and I didn’t even bother to actiicate it. I am sure Citi won’t give me the bonus or remove the hard inquiry. What do you think I should do with this new card? I already have Citi advantage Visa card since 2012. Thanks for your opinion and advice

Just SM’d for all 4 of my personal AA cards. Fingers crossed.

I’m pretty sure the link for the 60K business card listed above has gone inactive. Have not been able to get it live. Does anyone know whether there is a different link to the same offer?

thank you

ninim2200 posted a working 60k link on the FT thread for this card.

I noticed that biz 60k link doesn’t lead to an application. It’s broken. The 50k link opens as a 30k offer.

Whoa. Was gonna apply for citi business tonight any new link?

I have a mailer. Pm dalogester on Reddit if ur interested

So you’re saying you can apply for AA Plat, but get matched to the 75k offer, which is actually the Executive card?

My match from 60 was by SM.

“We have added 15,000 miles to your account to match the offer that you
received. The miles will post on your account within 1-2 billing cycles.”

“Keep in mind that in order to receive the 60,000 bonus miles you need to
have $3000.00 in purchases by XXXXXXX.”

I was about a month after my app.

Dummy booking spit out this new 40k offer for Citi AA Plat: https://secure.fly.aa.com/citi/myaccount-plat
Not really useful if they’re gonna match up to 75k.

Actually there’s another 40k offer for the Biz card: https://secure.fly.aa.com/citi/myaccount-cbaa

Just called… was told they would need 7-10 business days for the marketing team to investigate.

Just called and got the same thing. I wonder if I should put in a SM to match the 65K right now so I can at least get that if there decision is to deny the match?

I tried SM after 2 HUCA with no dice. Got rejected too.

“We received your request to apply the new account offer to your existing
account. Our solicitations are used as a way to encourage new business
or to offer an additional account to our customers. Therefore, we are
unable to apply the incentives mentioned in your solicitation to your
existing account.”

Calling is not a good idea here. Not sure why thats being recommended.

Found this on flyertalk, HT to ninim2000, for the 60k business offer and used it last night to snag one:
