Here is an odd e-mail offer that I received from CitiCards…
Earlier in the month I turned down a Citi American Airlines Amex retention offer and went ahead and closed my account.
Besides waiting on a refund from the card, I thought I was completely done with this account.
Then last night I received an e-mail with an offer from CitiCards where I could earn 3X bonus miles in specific categories.
While I’m currently working on finishing the minimum spend for another credit card, I figured it wouldn’t hurt to register for the 3X miles offer. I figured that I could probably earn the bonus at some point since I had until 3/31/15.
I assumed the offer was good for the Citi AAdvantage Platinum Select which I received back in November.
I then grabbed my newest American Airlines Citi card just to make sure that the offer was good for this card and not one of my Citi Executive cards. I flipped it over just to see that this offer was not for the card I had thought!
So which card was the offer for? Since I was sitting in the room where I kept my credit cards not currently being used (as well as my cancelled cards), I took out the Amex card that I had cancelled last month.
Well go figure, this 3X miles offer was valid for my closed Citi AA Amex card!
This has got to rank up there are one of the stranger offers that I’ve been e-mailed from an airline recently!
