Thursday might be the last day for 50k AA miles from Citi

by on Tue February 28, 2017 • No Comment


If you’ve been holding out on getting 50,000 AAdvantage miles via the Citi® / AAdvantage® Platinum Select® World Elite™ MasterCard® or  CitiBusiness® / AAdvantage® Platinum Select® World MasterCard®, you might want to apply by Thursday, March 2nd.

Both cards have a $3,000 spending requirement within 3 months of opening the account.

While you’ll start to see the offer phased out on Wednesday, it should still be available on the Citi website through Thursday.

But after that there are no guarantees it will be available without special targeting.

In the past, a link via has been available that was intended for people applying via an inflight sales pitch, or responding to a mail offer, but that old link isn’t live anymore, so it’s not clear how the 50k may be accessible in March.

This page on Flyertalk is a good one to keep tabs on for activity.

If you’re thinking of applying, beware that Citi won’t give you a bonus if you’ve opened or closed a Citi AAdvantage personal card in the last 24 months, even if it’s another card like the Citi Executive AAdvantage. Sometimes pages that are missing the 24 month restriction language appear from time to time, but they don’t tend to last long and aren’t usually intended to be publicly available.

But you can get the bonus for both the personal and business versions of the card, since Citi considers the business version to be an entirely separate card family.

The standard bonus on this card is for 30,000 miles, though some people have reported being targeted for as many as 60,000 miles.

If you miss the 50,000 miles this time around, and it disappears from public view in March, there’s still a decent chance it will crop up again later this year, as the 50,000 mile offer seems to be the seasonal bonus Citi and AA have returned to regularly over the last few years.
