Has Citi Killed The 10% Rebate On The Citi American Airlines Cards? (No, It Hasn’t)
A few weeks ago Charlie from Running With Miles asked me if he had missed some news as he couldn’t find the 10% rebate being mentioned on the Citi American Airlines card and had recently been on vacation. I told him at the time that no news had been issued regarding that benefit, but I also couldn’t find it mentioned either. Eventually Charlie was able to find this page that specifically mentions that this benefit is still available.
I only mention this because today both The Short Final & Frequent Miler have posts on this benefit being removed for new cardholders. To be fair to both those sites, both Citi & American Airlines tweeted out saying that the benefit was discontinued so I can’t really blame them. It also is odd that it’s no longer clearly being advertised, maybe this is a benefit Citi is planning on removing or maybe they forgot to update that application link that does clearly mention the 10% rebate. My general rule of thumb is that twitter reps don’t know what they are talking about, but it can be difficult when traditional media departments don’t respond to inquiries.
