[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Personal offer is no longer valid and has expired.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).

If I close this credit card after 1 year and if I understand correctly, I will not loose the AA points since its independent of the credit card right?

Yes. This is the case with all airline miles cards.

Thanks for confirming.I have been getting their pre-qualified offer for 50k points without 24 months restriction. I guess this won’t make difference to me since its going to be my first citi AA card. I had citi premiere before which is an different reward program.

Auto-declined, called recon, after looking into it he said it’s a systematic decline that he can’t override, no further details at this time.
774 credit score, utilization is like 1% since i’m using mostly business cards right now, no inquiries since 2016, no new personal cards since Oct 2016. Got the Citi Double Cash over a year ago.

WTF?

I called a couple days for a match and they gave me 10k before this offer went public, that’s great though now I can apply for the Biz. My airport is a AA hub however award flights are expensive throughout the year. Was there a recent devaluation I wasn’t aware about?

I’ve been using the Reddit leaked links for 50k with no 24 month language. Would I be able to get 60k on this one, realizing that I would put myself on a 24 month clock to not be able to apply again unless a new no 24 link comes up?

Ravi

Are there any other credit card that I can apply to merge the inquiry?

You must not familiar with the Citi 8/65 rule. Read up on it.

Thanks for pointing it out. I should have clarified second cc need not be citi.

Needs to the same bank for inquiries to combine. It’s a loophole we capitalize on b/c the credit bureau sees 2 inquiries in a short amount of time so only processes it as 1…

I got a mailer a few weeks ago, same offer, 60k AA miles after $3k spend (there is an invitation code). I read the terms over and over and did not find any restrictive language on eligibility if I have or had the card before. I opened the same card in Jan 2015 and converted it to Dividend in Mar 2016.

I tend to apply for this card again. If I was denied on the bonus miles, can I argue that the mailer doesn’t mention any restriction and I should be eligible to get the miles again?

Thanks Doc!
This month my wife received a targeted mail offer for 50k/$5000, then 50k/$3000. Almost applied but then read this posting for 60k/$3000. She never had a Citi AA so language was not an issue. I have some regular spent coming up in May so I see an easy 60k in my future. Now redeeming for 2 x first class tickets will be a trick. Instant approval w/ higher 700s and before applying 4/24.

Any info on offer expiry date?

i had applied earlier in the year through a link w/o 24 months language. if i call to get matched to this offer, would that impact it and cause the 24 months condition be applied?

Regarding getting matched to 60,000 miles, I asked over chat as I recently completed the spend requirement for a 50,000 mile offer and was told the matching request has to occur within 60 days of account opening. Perhaps calling would have different results vs chat?

Got approved for the card. 22K limit, last citi card was back in 2014 (Citi Double).

6 queries in past 6 months on both EQ and EX, while 0 on TU.

800+ CS

Need the card not for AA but for their partners 🙂

PS: After submitting the application, it pushed me to automated verification and sent an OTP to my phone for verification.

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.

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.

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

Chris

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.

Any idea when does this offer expire?
