A couple of weeks back( before I left for our trip to Nicaragua) I received a bonus offer in the mail from Citi for my American Airlines Executive card.
I totally forgot about the offer until I received an e-mail with the same offer last night!
With this offer I can earn up to 2,500 bonus AA miles on eligible purchases made by 9/30/15.
The message from Citi AAdvantage calls this offer a way to earn 3X AA miles on eligible purchases but in reality the bonus is actually 2 miles per $.
To start earning the bonus, I had to sign up (by 8/31/15), which took one click. Easy enough…
I can now earn 3X miles in categories like grocery stores, gas stations, drugstores, restaurants and commuter transportation merchants.
This is a targeted offer as the terms clearly state “This promotional offer is non-transferrable and applies to the account ending in the last 4 digits referenced in this offer“.
While I love earning bonus miles I’m not so sure that I will bother trying to earn the 2,500 bonus miles. First of all, I have loads of American Airlines miles. I’d also prefer to spend on other cards like my Chase Ink and Amex SPG. Another reason would be the need to complete the minimum spend on a new card that should be arriving within a week.
On the other hand, it won’t take much to earn the maximum bonus so maybe I will go for it.
Did you receive this bonus offer for your Citi Executive card? If so, do you plan to earn the bonus miles or will you place your spend on other cards?
