Update: Please see FAQ in the comments here.
My wife and I both got “application pending” (hmm…maybe because we got lifetime AAdvantage Platinum status thanks to the grand old days of 3BM Citi AA applications and that we both have several active AA cards) but I called 800-695-5171 and they were able to approve both of us on the spot and confirm the 100K signup offer for spending $10,000 in 3 months!
They asked for my app ID which I didn’t have but they were able to lookup our application via our SSN.
All you need to do is fill out your name and click proceed to application, the other fields are not required to access the application.
Be sure to save screenshots of the offer in case of any issues getting the 100K!
This card does have a $450 annual fee.
You need to spend $10,000 within 3 months to get the 100K mileage bonus. The $200 will post as a statement credit once you spend $200 on your card.
This card comes with an Admirals Club membership which also allows access to USAirways lounges. There are no foreign transaction fees and you get a free bag when flying on American
