Update- Citi AA Card Retention Bonus- Success!

I decided to call Citi one more time to try for a retention bonus on my American Airlines business card. The rep was very helpful and gave me two very nice offers:

  1. 2,500 bonus miles to keep my account open & do nothing
  2. 10,000 bonus miles if I keep my account open & spend $5,000 in 6 months

Since I don’t have any new cards to reach minimum spends on, I went with choice 2. Spending $5,000 in 6 months is not too hard and well worth 10,000 bonus miles!


Just remember when you want to cancel your Citi AA card-call and ask for a bonus to keep your account open & it’s never too early to ask, this card was opened in June!

  1. Recently, like months ago, I called to cancel one of my Citi AA cards and they offered me 3k miles if I was to spend 500$ within 3 months, I did and then canceled afterwards.

  2. AA- Thanks! It’s amazing what the companies will do to keep out business.

    Spe- I used to always get offered 2500-3000 miles. When given the offer to get 10,000 miles as a retention bonus, I couldn’t turn it down!
