[Expired] Citi American Airlines 60,000 Miles Personal Offer (Possible Match To 75,000 Miles)

Personal offer is no longer valid and has expired.

This offer is particularly appealing at the moment due to the fact that lots of people are being successfully matched to 75,000 points.

The Offer

Direct link to offer

  • Citi / AAdvantage Platinum Select World Elite MasterCard is offering 60,000 miles after $3,000 in spend within the first three months.

Card Details

  • Annual fee of $95 is waived the first year
  • Contains one American Airlines bonus per 24 month language

Our Verdict

It has been possible to get this offer for some time by calling in and asking to be matched, but it’s always nice to not have to do that. Most people will not be eligible due to the following language:

  • American Airlines AAdvantage® bonus miles are not available if you have had any Citi® / AAdvantage® card (other than a CitiBusiness® / AAdvantage® card) opened or closed in the past 24 months.

We discuss this rule in more depth here. Before applying read these things you should know about Citibank. This is the best offer on this card. How good this offer is really depends on how much you value American Airline miles, most people value them significantly less than they used to due to non existent saver award space so keep that in mind. If you are eligible, I’d personally apply just to get that 24 month ticking (and that way if bonuses without this language come along, you can take advantage of them even if they aren’t the “best” offer).

There is also a 60,000 mile bonus on the business card. You can get that bonus even if you’ve had a personal card before (and vice versa).

Hello,
I applied for this card on September 7, was rejected because of insufficient credit history .I had an EXP score of 743 according to their letter, 19 months of credit history, an average credit age of 1 year, not a single late payment in my life and 3-5% of credit usage. Called the recon line with no luck and sent a recon request letter on September 14. Yesterday I received a preapproved letter for this very same card, do you think this is coincidence or would have something to do with the recon request letter? Should I apply with the preapproved code? Before this I only received offers for the lower tier AAdvantage Gold card.

I have an email invite to the AA platinum select world elite MC (whew!)
I may or may not be able to use the AA miles. I am wondering if this program allows me to use the miles for statement credit or other travel charges such as a cruise, gift cards, etc.

My wife and I are retired. We have amassed tons of AA miles via credit card offers. While it is true that it is difficult to find business class saver awards, they can be found most of the time if one is very flexible. Right now my wife just flew business class and first class, saver, to Narita from Tampa. But, I could not find her a return flight at saver level, so had to do standard level. Oh well, still a great deal as those ticketw would have cost $9500. In the fall we have a return flight from Budapest to Miami (need to rent a car and drive home from there) at the saver level via Air Berlin and AA….that was tough to find and avoid British Air……even Iberia was not available or Air Berlin, trans Atlantic. Going, I had to use United Miles for Austrian Air. Yes, it is tougher, but still possible most of the time.

Saw this offer for 50k plus $100 statement credit for AA purchase within the first 12 months: https://secure.fly.aa.com/citi/bp-plat-travelers

For a limited-time: Earn 50,000 American Airlines AAdvantage® bonus miles after spending $3,000 in purchases within the first 3 months of account opening
Plus new cardmembers can earn up to $100 in statement credits on eligible American Airlines purchases in the first 12 months of account opening.**

**Up to $100 in statement credits on eligible American Airlines purchases
New cardmembers approved through this offer will receive statement credits on eligible American Airlines purchases made to their new Citi® / AAdvantage® card (in one transaction or several), up to a maximum total of $100 in the first 12 months of account opening. Eligible American Airlines purchases are items billed by American Airlines as merchant of record booked through American Airlines channels (AA.com, American Airlines reservations, and American Airlines airport and city ticket counters). Products or services that do not qualify are car rentals, hotel reservations, American Airlines Vacations packages, purchase of elite status boost or renewal and AA CargoSM products and services. If instantly authorized, cardmembers will receive temporary account information and a temporary minimum credit limit. This temporary account information can be used during payment for the current eligible American Airlines purchases at time of checkout to receive the statement credit. If not instantly authorized, the new card account can be used on future eligible American Airlines purchases to earn the statement credit so long as those purchases occur within 12 months of account opening. Statement credit(s) will appear on the monthly credit card billing statement from Citi within 1-2 billing cycles from when the purchase is made.

I applied for the public 60k miles, 3k spend offer on 29 May 17. I received a targeted mail offer for 65k miles for 4k spend in 4 months with an additional 2k spend within 12 months of opening the card today (10 Jun 17). I am attempting to get matched to the 65k offer, but the chat representative could not help and directed me to call their customer service phone line.

Any idea when does this offer expire?

Send a SM to successfully match the 60k offer to the targeted 65k offer for same spend.

The same spend meaning $3,000 or $4,000? I thought the 65K offer requires $4,000 whereas the 60K one requires only $3,000.

I have Barclay AAdvantage® Aviator™ Red World Elite MasterCard now. If I apply for this card, am I still qualified for the 60K bonus?

Thanks.

I thought I closed my last Citi AA card over 2 years ago. So I applied and got instant approval. Haven’t received the card yet, but I looked up my record and found that my last Citi AA account was closed in Nov 2015. Looks like I won’t be getting the bonus. Huge mistake.

Any suggestions what I can do here?
1. Is there any chance Citi would make an exception to the 24-month rule if I call them?

2. If I won’t be getting the bonus, can I choose not to activate the card, or request Citi to close it right away? If I do so, would the card still show up in my credit reports?

Appreciate any insights.
