Executive AAdvantage bonus offer

The 75,000 mile offer for the Citi Executive® / AAdvantage® World Elite MasterCard® is no longer available. 

Here is a link to the latest offer

The card carries a $450 annual fee, but entitles you to access to American Airlines Admirals Clubs, which on its own could cost up to $500 a year.

It will have a space for an Admirals Club ‘referral code’ but you don’t need to enter that in the box to get the offer.

This comes as Citi may be trying to win over holders of The Platinum Card® from American Express, which will lost access to Admirals Clubs and US Airways Clubs as of March 22nd.

American AAdvantage miles for now are the best for international first and business class awards, so if you want the most luxurious trips they are a great bet.

This card is considered separate from the standard Citi Platinum Select AAdvantage MasterCard which has its own offer, visible here, so you can get the bonus for this if you already have that card and its bonus. And some people have reported getting the bonus for this card more than once.

    I do have the Citi Platinum mastercard. I have tried to apply for another Citi Platinum but I was not accepted due to the fact that I already have one. Can I apply to the Citi Executive Mastercard if I already have the Platinum one, or do I have to cancel first the one that I have? Thank you

    1. MileCards

      @David – Yes, the Executive card is completely separate from the Platinum so you’ll be eligible.

    Is there a way to avoid the annual fee? In another words, does Citi cards refund the annual fee if you cancel it like in a month or so.

    1. MileCards

      @Kevin V – Some people have had luck with a quick turnaround within a month, but not something to bank on reliably. Heard reports they started figuring that out and delaying posting of the bonus miles to combat it.

    My understanding was that Citi cards was offering Bonus AAdvantage miles for qualifying purchases made until the deadline of March 31, 2014. When on vacation in Florida, that offer prompted me to charge a total of $810.54 to my Citi AAdvantage card in January and February, 2014. However, unfortunately, only 811 miles were reported to American Airlines with ZERO Bonus miles awarded. I sure would like to find out why..

    1. MileCards

      @Francois- Which offer are you asking about? Was it for 100,000 miles, or for a bonus like 2x on your spending?

      The 100,000 mile offer is for $10,000 in spending within 3 months of getting the card. The March 31st deadline is just a deadline for applying for the card to be eligible for the offer. So your $800 will count toward the spending you need to hit the bonus, and once you finish that spending within 3 months of getting the card, you will get the bonus.

      If it was just a bonus on spending not related to signing up for the card, those sometimes take a little longer to post than the regular miles from spending. It may be worth a call to Citi.

    Do I understand correctly about the $200 statement credit that I get that for simply making purchases of any kind of at least $200 in the first 12 months? So that means for a spend of $200, the card essentially costs $295.

    1. MileCards

      @Cliff- Yes, the terms in the fine print of the landing page say $200 in purchases of any kind get you a $200 statement credit which as you point out would be an effective $250 fee for the first year. It’s odd – usually a credit like this requires you to make $200 in purchases with American, but there is no such limitation on the landing page terms.

      1. JP

        Would you get the $200 statement credit in the statement after you spent $200 or do they not give you this credit till the end of year 1 to try to get you stay for another year?

        1. MileCards

          @JP – Confirmed you get it right after you hit that first $200 in spending, to help offset the annual fee which also posts on the first statement.

    2. Pat

      Just fyi – my first bill ws $79.00 (i rec’d my card a few days before the monthly billing cycle ended and my charges were non-American) and CB credited me that amount already through the $200 credit i suppose (sent me a $0.00 balance due bill). I am assuming the remainder would be credited in next month’s bill. Not a bad deal (at least for Year 1) considering an annual subscription to the Admirals club is included.

  5. Pat

    Hi, one more question… when does the 50K miles standard Citi Platinum Select AAdvantage MasterCard offer expire?


  6. Pat

    Can someone clarify what would happen if after the $10K purchase limit is met and the 100K miles are posted, and the card is cancelled (two scenarios – prior to end of the first yr or at renewal)? Will the bonus miles be revoked? Thanks!

  7. John

    The link choked up a bit on Safari, but tried Chrome and Firefox and was able to pull up the offer without a problem. Thanks for posting the link!

  8. David

    I had no problems verifying this offer is valid and also hold the regular Citi AAdvantage cards. Definitely one I was glad to jump on for a quick 75,000 miles.

  9. Brendon

    I applied via the link and confirmed it is a 75,000 offer, and I already have another AAdvantage card in my name. My wife had gone for the 60,000 mile offer and she called to get matched. They offered another 15,000 miles after $1,500 in additional spend, so almost the same terms as this one.
