A Bizarre Retention Offer

Turning Down A Citi AA Retention Offer

This is really bizarre…

Last month I thought that I turned down a retention offer on my Citi AA Mastercard and closed my account.

I was told that the $95 balance from the annual fee would be removed and that the account was closed. However, when I checked into my Citi account a few times over the past month, it always showed that I still had a balance. Continue reading A Bizarre Retention Offer

Turning Down A Citi AA Retention Offer

The time has come for the annual fee on my Citi American Airlines Mastercard and I wasn’t about to pay $95 to hold onto the card for another year.

I decided to call in to see if there were any interesting offers available for me before going ahead to close my card. In some ways I hoped there wasn’t. I’d like to thin out my stack of open cards before opening  many more… Continue reading Turning Down A Citi AA Retention Offer

That’s Fast, 3rd Citi AA Exec Card Arrives

Fancy Packaging

In the middle of last week there was news circulating that the amazing Citi AA Executive card 100,000 mile signup bonus was coming to an end. I had planned on applying when I heard the offer would be ending but totally forgot. When I tried applying around 12:30 AM, the page showed an error message.

Later that day I came across a link from Dan’s Deals saying that the Citi Exec offer was not gone. I decided to take a chance and apply for the card even thought the application page did not state what offer I was applying for. Continue reading That’s Fast, 3rd Citi AA Exec Card Arrives

Confirmed: Citi Exec AA 100,000 Mile Offer Still Working

There were reports starting yesterday that the amazing Citi American Airlines Executive card 100,000 mile bonus offer would be ending today. I first heard the news from Miles to Memories.

I’ve mentioned this awesome offer on a couple of occasions when Kim had an interesting 100,000 miles credit card approval conversation and in my Almost Mid-Year Update.

Coincidently, this past Tuesday my father-in-law was asking me how he could get a quick chunk of miles again to plan for a new trip. I mentioned applying for the AA Executive card again. He applied, called-in and was approved within 15 minutes! Continue reading Confirmed: Citi Exec AA 100,000 Mile Offer Still Working

I’ve been putting off applying for a Citi Executive AAdvantage card for Kim for way too long and decided to finally get it taken care of last week. 

(I’ve already received two Citi Executive AAdvantage cards which come with an amazing 100,000 bonus miles each. If you haven’t already taken advantage of this offer, you can still do so by applying here (not an affiliate link). The card comes with a pricey $450 annual fee but after a $200 statement credit you are really only paying $250.)

It seems like every month I have another Citi American Airlines credit card’s annual fee come up. I’m not complaining, I consider myself lucky to have been approved for so many AA cards over the years!

For 2014, I’ve already received two Citi Executive AAdvantage cards which come with an amazing 100,000 bonus miles each. If you haven’t already taken advantage of this offer, you can still do so by applying here. (The card comes with a pricey $450 annual fee but after a $200 statement credit you are really only paying $250.)

Back in January I received $10 Profit + Up To 16,000 Bonus Miles to keep my Citi AA American Express card open. Then in February I was offered a couple of options to keep my Citi AA Visa card open.

In recent months I’ve written about retention offers that I’ve received for a couple of credit cards.

Back in January I received $10 Profit + Up to 16,000 Bonus Miles to keep my Citi AA American Express card. Earlier this month I called up American Express regarding the annual fee on my Platinum Card. Find out what I was offered here and also check out the update here.

So now the fee has come up on yet another one of my Citi AA credit cards- the Visa variety.

I decided to call in to see if there was any retention offers available to me.

My Citi AA Retention Offer: $10 Profit + Up To 16,000 Bonus Miles

Last week I posted about miles & points earned from credit card sign up bonuses in 2013. While it was a very productive year, I did quite a bit better in 2012.

Over the past couple of years I’ve gotten approved for 5 Citi American Airlines credit cards, earning me 240,000 AAdvantage miles from sign up bonuses.

One of my Citi AA cards from 2012 came up for a fee this month ($85 for the year). I decided to call in and try to get a retention bonus. I was curious to  see if Citi would tempt me with a fair offer to keep this card.
