We haven’t written about a credit card signup offer in a very long time. The Points Guys posted a fantastic offer from Citi for it’s Executive AAdvantage World Elite Mastercard with a signup bonus of 100,000 American AAdvantage miles.
Update 6/25/2015 – Offer gone
The offer is:
- 100,000 Bonus American Airlines AAdvantage Miles after you spend $10,000 in 3 months
- $200 statement credit in the first 12 months
- Admirals Club® Membership Privileges
- Earn up to 10,000 Elite Qualifying Miles per calendar year
- No Foreign Transaction Fees
- Enhanced Airport Experience with dedicated check-in and priority screening and boarding
- First Checked Bag Free
- $450 annual fee (not waived)
The $10k spend requirement over 3 months is a lot for most, although it can be met with Vanilla Reloads and Amazon Payments. With the $200 statement credit, in essence, you are buying 100,000 miles for $250 assuming you use none of the other benefits. 100,000 miles is enough for a business class trip to South America or Europe. In our books, this is a good deal.
Some caveats, this does ask for a referral code and airport code. The application does through without those two codes. As always with the potentially targeted offers, your mileage may vary. Remember to take screenshots.
Update 1/28/2014 @ 3:55PM Eastern: Our reader Andrew just share a referral code and airport code. Referral Code: 004704 Airport Code: HNL.
