Don’t Forget To Get Matched To 60,000 Southwest & 60,000 American Airlines Offers

A lot of credit card issuers will match you to a higher sign up bonus if that offers becomes available to you when you’ve recently signed up for a card. Two such card issuers are Chase & Citi. This is a friendly reminder that you should be asking to be matched to 60,000 points/miles on the following deals/cards:

The easiest way to get matched is to send a secured message, with the Citi offer I’d just say that you saw an offer for 60,000 miles and with Chase it’s probably a good idea to include a link to the 60,000 offer. Lots of readers have confirmed that matching is possible on both offers (originally matching to Southwest business wasn’t working, it should be fine now).

Update: Just to make it a bit clearer, there American Airlines offer is actually semi targeted (no online link) but it’s still possible to match to it.

If you signed up for two Citi Platinums
Send a secured message for each card seperate.
(Read somewhere that the guy asked to be mayched for Platinum 1 before he recieved the bonus points on Platinum 2 and then lster he asked for Platinum 2 and he was successful both times).

There was one DP saying that a person who signed up for the AA within 24 month of previous AA got banned for the entire sign up bonus during matching for the 60k since the banker checked his history and found the other card. But also one DP saying that he succeeded in matching for 60k in exact same condition. So YMMV but matching may cost you the 50k as well.

That individual has grounds for a CFPB complaint because the offer has no 24 month requirement and Citi can’t just decide to change the terms on the fly. FWIW I got the match on my first Reddit AA card and the 60k have already posted, waiting on second card to arrive and plan to ask for match when it does.

For Citi – Do you recommend sending a SM immediately after activating the card or immediately following reaching the minimum spend threshold?

I opened the UA business card last week for 50k miles. I asked to be matched to the 50k + $50 offer and was denied. I had always heard chase has a policy for matching…

Chase will normally not match statement credits in my experience, or annual fee waivers, but they will match bonus point offers.

I got matched to 60k, but in an alternative way. The 50k with 3k spend stats the same but the agent deposited the extra 10k into my AA account which will show up on my statement. Took screenshots to prove it.

Where is link/proof of 60k offer to be matched too? Plz share.

Same thing here — SM I got back said I was bound by the terms of the offer, but she would deposit the 10K to my account as a one-time courtesy.

Chase Southwest 60K successfully matched this evening. I tried 4 days ago when the offer came out and was denied.

I hadn’t heard about a 60k offer on the AA card.. Does anyone know if it’s for the business version as well? Thanks.

For the AA Plat, any harm in waiting for the 50k to post and then asking to be matched to 60k?

Is the secure message the instant message chat with a rep? Or is it an email? I IM with a rep and he gave me an 800 number to call to talk more specific about points.

I got matched today after the 50,000 miles had already posted by asking via secure message (not the chat). The additional 10,000 miles are supposed to post in a billing cycle or two.
