Citigold Checking: Problems with the AA 30k Offer
Just now, two separate reports (1, 2) came in that there appears to be a problem with the AA offer and it’s apparently not available. This is despite the fact that the offer details are still showing clearly in the promotional terms and indicating that the offer is valid until 9/30/15.
Both reports come with the same conclusion that Citi agreed to instead add the Thank You promo to the account, after the fact, as that promo is still valid and current.
It’s odd that they’re pulling a promo in middle of its time and that they haven’t updated the terms of the offer to indicate that it’s expired. In any case, for now it would make sense to avoid the AA offer, until we hear from Citi that it’s valid again.
Those who recently applied for the AAdvantage offer would be wise to verify that the offer is added correctly to their account. You can do this over the phone or via chat. If the AA offer was not added correctly (more likely if you applied within the past couple days), you should be able to get it swapped over to the Thank You offer instead.
