I decided to call Citi one last time to ask for a retention bonus to keep my American Airlines Business Card account open. The rep was very helpful and had two offers for me
1- 2,500 miles to keep my account open & do nothing
2- 10,000 miles to keep my account open & spend $5,000 in 6 months
I went with option 2. Spending $5,000 in 6 months will not be hard to do and is well worth 10,000 AA bonus miles!
If you are thinking of closing your Citi AA credit card don’t forget to ask for a bonus to keep the acount open. Take the bonus offer and then close it a couple of months later!
