Citi AA 50k Mile No 24 Month Language Updates: Bonus In Mail & Getting Second Card

Currently there is an offer for 50,000 miles on the Citi American Airlines credit card. This is a standard offer, but what is different is the fact that this offer doesn’t include the language that prevents you from getting the bonus if you have opened or closed a Citi American Airlines personal card within the past 24 months (you can read more about this rule here).

There are two updates I’d like to give:

  • People that applied when we first posted have reported receiving the offer details in the mail clearly stating the 50,000 mile bonus and making no mention of the 24 month restriction. This doesn’t guarantee you’ll get the bonus (this is Citi after all) but it does mean that you have clear physical evidence if they try to deny you for the bonus. This was first posted on /r/churning.
  • Citi has strict application rules, they are as follows:
    • You can only apply for one Citi personal card every 8 days
    • You can apply for no more than two Citi personal cards every 65 days
    • You can apply for one Citi business card every 95 days.
    • Some people are also being limited to one Citi card every 60 days, but this doesn’t seem to be a hard rule

This means that some of you will be eligible to get another American Airline card with the 50,000 mile bonus (using the same link) again. When you’re eligible will depend on when you applied, make sure to leave 8 days between applications. As always if you have any questions about Citi credit cards, please read this first. If you have questions about this specific deal, read our post (and the comments) here.

Can I close one Citi AA card, while I am currently working on spending for another Citi AA card made with the 9-digit mailer code? Since the new card has no 24 month language, closing previous card seems not affecting the bonus eligibility. Is this right?

Help Guys………….I recently applied and got approved for Citi Business AA 60k Offer (my 1st ever Citi business AA card application) completed the spend and did not get 60k bonus……..when i messaged CS thru my account, they said i will not get bonus as i got it in past……………

I never ever have applied for this card, infact i do not even have an AA number……and citi has gotten things messed up/confused on their end.

I was an authorized user for someone else’s CITI Business AA card in past (that account has been closed and my AU info has been removed from that account after requesting info to be removed via creditkarma and direct contact with Credit Bureaus)…….. but never had this card individually under my Name and SS.

How can i rightfully claim and get this Bonus…….any people i can write to at Citibank to get this 60k bonus for my CITI Business AA card? Or should i file a complaint with CPFB or file a Legal case against Citibank?

Please advice……..

I applied for citi personal 60k card via an invitation code received in mail with no “24 month rule restriction”. Got approved and am in midst of making the spend to get bonus.

Meanwhile i got another citi personal 50k offer with another different code and no 24 month restriction.
Can i apply for this 2nd card/same product(50k offer) even though i got same card via 1st offer (60k offer) just recently?

If Yes, when should i make 2nd application? Will i get the 50k bonus on the 2nd card too?

An Urgent question, about Citi AA Platinum personal card.

I have 2 different offers with invitation codes and my name on the offers for 60k and 50k promotions.

Can i apply for both today, and be approved and get both promotions or i can apply for only one of these offers?

Moreover if i apply for both, will credit inquiry be combined and show up only as one card opened on my 3 bureau credit report or show up as 2 different cards (more important due to chase 5/24 rule)?

You can only have 1 Citi app in 8 days and 2 in 65 days. Biz app is 95 days between apps.

Thanks Ken. Meaning i can apply for 2nd card (same card with 50k bonus) after 8 days of applying for same card with 60k bonus, Correct?

The Chase 5/24 rule counts card accounts opened in 24 months, it does not count inquiries.

I would not risk doing that. Mailers with 9 digits work better than 12 digit mailers. Make sure there’s no 24 month language on the mailer. Apply now, do the spend, get your points, reduce credit limit to $2k, and then apply using the other mailer.

How do these no 24 month links even happen? Like how do people find them. Seems like someone inside Citi leaking it. Anyways I hope another no 24 month personal link happens. I’m finally 0/65!! Please Citi, leak it one more time..

How long did it take for you to get to 0/65?

trick question? 65 days past my 2nd application.
I am still 1/90 for business so can’t touch that offer until next month and i doubt its still around by then. I guess I need to get lucky and get a mailer code or find a link without 24 month language.

Link is dead, it comes up system error, was fun while it lasted!
7 weeks later and i got 126,000 AA points for swiping $6,000 and not even an annual fee 🤣👍👏😂
(Was thinking to go for round 3 in 2 weeks after the 2/65 🙈

Does anybody know or has anyone tried to use their AA number for their spouses application to combine the points? Is this against their terms of service or no big deal?

On card #1 bonus tracker never appeared for me. However, the statement meeting the 3k spend closed 2 days ago and the 50k miles posted the same day. The bonus tracker still does not appear on card #2. I’m working on the 3K for that one. Can’t thank you enough Doc! I’m considering trying the business card now. I’ll just have to review the Citi rules to see how long I have to wait.

I applied and was approved. Received letter with bonus language. However, I see no bonus tracker online. Is this bad news? I haven’t met full $3k spend yet, but have some spending on it. Any thoughts on this?
