Citibank Executive American AAdvantage Card: Earn 100K Miles Plus $200 Cash Back!

278

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.

Will this card work if cancelled to get into lounges?

AVI

HOW MUCH IS WORTH THIS POINTS ???

chana k

Do authorised users also get an extra bag?

Yeshivaman

Is this limited to new AA accounts? I currently have a regular Citi AA card- does that mean I don’t get this?

noob

I have 2 questions:
1) After 30 days, is it pro-rated?
2) Is there a business and personal version?

Stephen

Will I get access to lounges even if it’s cancelled?

Jo

If I already have the visa a and amex citi aa card, can I still get accepted to this card?

Charles

What are they worth?

levi

will this work if i have had the other ones in the past year?

Abe

Can i her this offer if i currently have the citi aa persanal and bussiness cards?

AmericanFlyer

Does this card also get you the 10,000 EQMS?

lw

do i qualify if i already have the regualr citi aa card and just got it recently? Can I spend on airlines and then “return”?

myb821

I thought by law they had to give 60 days?

Makir Tovah

Just opened a Citi account using a targeted promotion we got in the mail for 60K for a platinum card after 3K spending. Did the spending and they denied making the offer asking for copies of the mailer which we tossed. 🙁

Yankel

Do you have any recommendations for a 3bm w this?

daviud

dan are you going for this deal?

tzvi

dan – would this help me get to israel via newark, non-stop? if not, which cards should i apply for, and fly on what airline?

yn

when is the 450 billed?

daviud

@Makir Tovah Just keep calling and complaining and yelling…I had a similar issue. I started making a whole big deal and they eventually honored it..Be’H it’ll work out

RC

Do you receive 1 mile per dollar spent on the card? I am not seeing that anywhere…

moshe yankel

1 This Citi® / AAdvantage® card offer is only valid for new applicants for a Citi®/AAdvantage® account applied for pursuant to this offer and is not available to existing cardmembers or recent applicants for a Citi® / AAdvantage® credit card.

Levi

What’s the minimum credit line they’ll approve you for?

doodle

is this the same as the other AA citi cards that only can be applied for every 18 months ?

AJK

@Stephen:

No.

@AmericanFlyer:

Yes, after $40,000 in spend.

@myb821:

Yet to see that law.

@tzvi:

No. Only UA flies from EWR-TLV non-stop, though after the the merger you will be able to fly PHL-TLV non-stop.

api

if i spend 10000 and cancel the card before the 450 is charged will i still get the points

ls

if canceled, are points lost?

Dav

@Leivik: Just Read! After 30 days it is non-refundable and will not be prorated.

kotel

nice! approved

Dav

@AVI: Depends what you use it for.

Anonymous

How do you get the points before the annual fee is billed? If you only have 30 days how would that work out?

Anonymous

@AmericanFlyer: Read the fine print: cardmember will earn 10,000 Elite Qualifying Miles (EQMs) after he or she reaches the first $40,000 in eligible purchases

Question

If I have a Citi AA Visa can I still get this bonus? I got that card approx 6 months ago. Or is this card a totally different animal?

benny

hey dan can I meet the 10k spend with vanilla reloads? or will citi red flag you and close you down? also not so good with computers can you explain how to take a screen shot and save it? tia!

existing card

hmmm, dan, im seeing that it can take a year or two to be able to get new card bonuses. but does that mean that if i DO get accepted they will give me the bonus, or is it possible they will accept me and deny the bonus?

Gevaldig

@benny click on your keyboard “printscreen” usually in the top right corner & paste into an email or word document.

Nach_d-rock

Where does citi pull credit report from?

Dave

How do you get the points before the $450 fee hits

Anonymous

any chance they will waive first year

ash

@Nach_d-rock: Usually from Experien, closely followed by Equifax. Though in some cases they will pull from both…

@Nach_d-rock:

Depends on where you’re applying from.

@Dave:

You don’t.

@Anonymous:

No.

abc

Any instant approvals?

happy

if i cancel within 30 days can i still get the miles?

deal boy

is there anyway to get any part of the annual fee back after i open

MEIR

TO ANSWER EVERYONE’S QUESTION- they told me that as long as you are opening a new type of card you would be eligible for the 100000 offer (i have the citi and they say i am eligible)
also- they charge the annual fee 1st billing cycle and the points post afterwards(still worth it)

dan is the man

will i be able to cancel the card once i get the points before i get charged the $450?

weird

what do they want? I got this message……..

which part of “Citi only gives 30 days from when that is billed to cancel a card for a refund. After 30 days it is non-refundable and will not be prorated.” is not clear??

david mal

@happy: yes your miles get loaded to your AA account not your CC

existing

just wanted to let y’all know, i applied, and was accepted after calling in. i have the regular aa card for about 13 months

Chaim

Had to call in to provide more info, all I had to do was move over credit from a different account to get this approved. They also confirmed that I will receive 100k after spending 10k in three months. My last aadvantage card was closed over 18 months ago.

Thanks Dan!

MonseyMom

Is the annual fee billed upfront? Or at the end of the year?
@AJK are you saying that even after you spend the $10,000 you have to wait for the $450 annual fee for the bonus points to post?

do i need to apply for a new aa #? or will it go on one of my current ones?

sometimes citi gold members get their cc fees waved.

dosave

Instant Approval, Thanks!

Phantomtech

Thanks, approved.

me

is it 90k roundtrip? or oneway? (to israel)what about business/first class? is there good availability on this airline?

Anshel Schwartz

C/P $450 Annual fee which of not canceled within the first 30 days it won’t be refunded. If you cancel within the first 30 days you probably won’t get the 100k posted… So basically it’s $450 (minus $200 statement credit if you spend $10,000 in the first 90 days) + a credit hard pull..
You’d have to think twice before going for it

On the other hand, AA miles are not so easy to get and can be extremely valuable when using it to fly business with Elal (פוי..)

deals

after i get this card will i be able to apply to lower aadvandage cards with bonuses or is this it for 2 years

If I make a balance transfer, is that included in the 10,000 dollars I spend?

Can i get points on citi for amazon payments ?

normally when citi approves its with the points
if they dont give you the points they will not approve you
but my question still as above

i feel like this may be a stupid question but, I am able to pay citibank via bluebird, correct?

@Chazu
balance transfers never count toward spending thresholds

Mark

Are there any other god AA cards to open along w this?

kb

coppied from…
I don’t have the Citi Executive card with the $450 annual fee, but readers write that it is considered a different product from the regular Citi American Airlines cards.

So you may be able to apply for the Citi Executive card even if you have a Citi American Airlines credit card. Remember to wait ~10 days between Citi applications, and don’t apply for more than 2 personal cards in a 65 day period.

happy

dan writes- “citi only gives 30 days from when that is billed to get a refund”

when do they bill the $450? is it at the end of the billing cycle? so is it really like 2 months that you have?

Chossid

Just for clarification i spoke with Citi and took screenshots. They don’t see the $10k spending on their side so SAVE the application page.

If you have a Plat card already this is what I got:

Sherri : Oh yes, having multiple accounts with us does not limit your earnings.

Mileswhore

The statement credit is after spend with AA per the rep. She read
it off the screen.

Dan

FAQ:

1. Although the terms state that it’s for first-time AA cardholders I doubt that will hold true. They always state that 😉

2. The $450 fee will post right away so only apply for the offer if you’re willing to pay it.

3. The 100K will post on the statement following completion of the $10K spend.

4. In general Citi no longer allows 2/3/4BMs. If you apply for a card you need to wait 8 days before you can apply for another Citi card.

5. AA doesn’t fly to Israel. You can fly on USAirways via PHL or on El Al from EWR, JFK, LAX, or YYZ for 90K coach or 135K business.
You can also fly AA to Europe and then El Al from Europe to Israel for 80K between 10/15 and 05/15.

6. Beware that the AA chart is extremely ripe for a devaluation.

Yitzhak

How is Citbank (vis-a-vis Chase) with regards to manufacture spend with VISA gift cards and Bluebird. $10,000 spending in 3 months is an awfully big hurdle….even with my wife and kids doing their best.

Chris

Must be the DansDeal effect. I got the call in message as well and have been on hold for over 10 minutes.

eve

Still, Dan wouldn’t you say $250 is pretty good for a flight to Israel even with a stop-over in Europe?

eve

Been on hold for 15 plus minutes

chap nisht

can i do a 2bm with a business card?

Dan

@chap nisht:
Read the FAQ.

Marilyn

Thanks, Dan! New fan of your website. I had to call to verify name and birthdate but was then approved. Rep confirmed it was for 100K miles for $10k spend in three months. And I need an AA card, so great timing!!!

bill

dan how long was your hold time? and is the 200 statement credit on any purchase or only on aa purchases?

Will this be around in another week or two?

Congrats!

Seems like it’s on anything.

the $200 Credit will post after $200 in spend ?

dantheman

Dan – if I have the same card (Citi AA MC), can I still get this? IF there is no clear cut answer, can you tell us if you would still apply if you were me? Thanks.

Citi no longer allows 2/3/4BMs. what does this mean?

Moto

I applied almost 30 days ago for Citi master card 50k I got declined because they said I have a similar card to that which is the citi Amex card which is active so I can’t get approved
Could I call up citi and get them to match this pull to the 100k offer? Any advice?

FD ing

ANONYMUS> Dont “Dump” this lingo where it is not understood…

MonseyMom

Now kinda disappointed. Didnt realize that the $450 posts right away. Thought it posted at the end of the year, like the other cards.

If you spend $10000 within the 30 days, can I cancel the card, get the annual fee reimbursed and still get the points?
Not really interested in spending $250 for the 100000 miles.
Pretty steep price in my eyes. And if I cancel the card without the spend, kind of a waste of the hard pull.
Any recommendations going forward?

Reb Moshe

they want my cell phone #, i dont have one. they asked how much a credit line i want!
he says he will be back in a minute
18 min hold time

Akiva

If I’m in NJ and did a Experian credit freeze, should I still call number on Faq page and give SS# or should I wait?

Anonymous

How do we know they wont waive annual fee first year only if we call or sm

Reb Moshe

13k credit line

Nate

If I’m just starting out in the cc world would I get approved? Is this a hard card to get approved as a 1st card?

Akiva

I’m in Lakewood and saying they need to pull Experian, so freeze didn’t work.

Chossid

@MonseyMom

Its cheap and you get 110k since you spent $10k. Dan was very clear it posts from the start

existing

@MonseyMom

you think 250 for 100k is steep??

even at 1 cent a mile your are getting 1,000 dollars worth of miles for 250

Chris

@MonseyMom $250 for 100,000 miles is a great deal. I’d buy them all day and all night at that rate if I could.

MonseyMom

@Chossid:
The original post did not clarify the $450 was up front. That was detailed later on. At that point I had already gotten the card approved.

Better ways to get 100,000 miles at a cheaper rate.

Just wondering if you are able to spend the $10000 within the first 30 days, can you cancel the card, get the annual fee reimbursed and still get the points?

Dan

@MonseyMom:
The post said $450 annual fee in bold print!
It even said that it’s non-refundable after 30 days!

If a card isn’t billed an annual fee the first year it says “waived for the first year”

E.D.

Any1 have any clue how much money AA miles sell for nowadays? Thnx

Anonymous

@Chris:

250 plus whatever the fees are on the cards you need to manufacture the $10000 spend.
If VR thats another $79.

Ok..ok…I’ll stop whining 🙂

MonseyMom

@Dan:

My apologies.
My misunderstanding on the annual fee. I did see the bolded amount, made the assumption it billed at end of year.
Now I know better.

Again apologies

E.D.

@ anonymous. Are you for certain you can pay this card from a blue bird account?

fred

Got it! I called, stayed on hold for 15 min. and got it approved. rep confirmed 100k offer on her own……..Thanks dan!

Shia

Dan, For who would you recommend this card? are the points worth anything to sell?

Ari

approved after calling…
Dunno what the point of the phone call was. she didnt even ask any questions.

Jack

They told me no one is getting approved over the phone anymore do to the call volume i should call back in a few days

I have a citi aa visa card platinum,i want to know if I apply for this card and after the 30 days down grade this new card to my platinum card. will that be ok? this will than obviously alleviate the $450/ year fee

Hi Dan “1. Although the terms state that it’s for first-time AA cardholders I doubt that will hold true. They always state that ;)”
even if i still have now open 2 aa advantage/citi both the buss and personal?
Thanks !

Question

To follow up on @monsey moms question, it appears that you can spend 10k in less than 30 days and receive both the $200 credit and 100k miles while canceling within the 30 days to also receive a refund of the $450 annual fee. Is this correct??

AVI

which points are good for hotel in eliat isrial ?????

Akiva

Un-froze Experian and was approved on the spot.

Thanks Dan!

RK

My application was just denied..Called two times. I applied for a regular AA Master card in December and approved. Denial reason is recent approval of another Citicard. REquest to re-validate with supervisor since this one is different and has Lounge access associated with it. Anyone like me got approved??

@noob: no it is not prorated they charge the whole $450 after 30 days.

@AVI: there is a meridian there. But cost a fortune. 12k points. Not worth it!

Thanks!!!

esther

i always get citi aadvantage card offers for 45k or 50k miles while spending only $3000 for the first 3 months, and the annual fee for the first year is waived. This offer isn’t as grand as it sounds.

lazegotit

@MonseyMom:

Why isnt 100k worth $250?!
Cancel within 30 days to get the $450 back, but then no points.
Like Dan said, the points don’t post till after the billing cycle, even if you spend the 10k on the first day. ..

mike

I opened this card a month a go with 60K will they match?

Amitai

Dan. Can you buy vanilla cards with Citi? I wanna make sure before I apply. Thank you

DanR NYC

@Dan … Sounds like a fair offer…. Any lounge access included with the card ? Free bags ?

SimonZX

Thought I’d add one more data point: I have both the AA VISA and AMEX cards open (applied in Jan 2013). Just applied for this card and got pending decision. Called the number and was put on hold for a few minutes. Without asking any questions (except app id), the rep kindly told me I was approved. Thanks, Dan!

worth 100k points for $450 pay now, and wait for devaluation coming, where 100k would be worth 50?

That is my question. I am not quite ready for an appo-rama. Dan, do you have any idea how long this will last

wondering

JUst tried said i had to call there system is down you think they will honor it?

i already have this card, what can i do to get some kind of compensation as i pay $450 each year… who do i call and what do i say to get miles or a statement credit or a better interest rate etc.. any help would be great.

chi-beria

reply is now All systems down. call back in 24-48 hours

Canceling?

If I can spend 10,000 in 15 days, can I downgrade to a free card (is there a free card to downgrade to?) or cancel and never be charged the $450 and also get the points before the 30 days are up?

MEIR

@Anonymous: 100 k pts is worth about 1500 dol in flights easy (thats more then 250 if my math is correct) or if you can spend 10000 in 1 month somehow then cancel it after the pts post to aadvantage account then once its in the account citi cant take it back(can someone else confirm me on this?TY)

bar kamza

if you get charged every year that you have the card the $450 fee is it still worth it ( is this a one time fee?)

If i did a 3bm with chase at the end of december, will my chances for getting approved for this card be lowered?

Why should they make a problem for cvs purchases? Is there any legitimate source for this specilation thanks

I applied last night and had to call (like every1 else) and their system was down. So I just called at 7am (as soon as they opened) and was approved. So if you wanna get it done 2day, the faster u call the better before their system gets clogged again! Lol.

mike

mr

i got the same response. i just did a huca. well see where that will get me. im already holding for over 10 min.

thetanta

after applying, i got the message of pending review like many others here. after calling them and being told i have to wait 7-10 days, i did a HUCA. low and behold….approved in less than 6 seconds. 😉

Yitz

Just wondering why everyone is questioning being able to use vr on this ard. Is there a reason I can’t spend $1000 or even $5000/$10000 in cvs or wherever else you want… What’s the question based on

ys

@Anonymous: very happy for u

AA

Just received my Delta club offer for 1 yr club. will take care of my flights needs for 2014.
Any reason to apply for this as well, as I wont need club. its basically the miles (hopefully) for $450 and high spend requirement. any thoughts?
If I only could defer club for 2015…
which clubs would match Delta Plat?

I’m New to aa… can anyone tell me the the flying value of these 100k. How many are needed to go to Israel? Other examples, etc

Redbull3

@help: Read the FAQ

NG

What do you mean “extremely ripe for devaluation”? Does that mean they will devalue the miles?

Thanks Dan

approved in 30 seconds after making the call. Thank you!

NJMACMAN

Dan,

To get the $200 credit, is that for any spending or only buying soimething from the airline, like the AMEX Platinum?

any1

can some1 tell me wen using vr is it better to pay cc bill from bb or just transfer to checkin acct

May

Thanks Dan, applied and they told me that I have to wait for further review which could take up to a week, I checked now online and got approved.

Gingi

Thanks Dan.

B.H. Approved right away. After reading your post and thinking this through I figured 100,000 miles for $250 is a fair deal. Figure I’d have to add another 20,000-40,000 MR or SPG points for a business class ticket to Israel, and I got myself a Business Class ticket for the cost of an cheap economy ticket to Israel.

Spending $10,000 on some business expenses is not a problem, so deal made sense (without having to worry about Citi classifying CVS purchases of VR cards as cash advances).

hey

@Gingi:
how can citi consider cvs a cash advance

Moshe

Do not apply for the card only if you have at leas 4 c.c. If you don’t have they will not approve you

Dan's the man

My wife and I got approved. My wife’s card got overnighted by FedEx. Guess mine will come on Monday. We spend 5K on her card at CVS today. Had to call the fraud department to have the transaction approved. They said there were a bunch of calls for large purchases at CVS today. 🙂

Dan's the man

@help: You can fly to Israel for 90K round trip points on El Al with no fuel surcharges. You can also fly from Philadelphia on US Air for 90K. You can also stop in Europe but don’t go British Air as they have sky high fuel surcharges. I believe business on El Al / US Air is 135K round trip. So with the 110K you get from this offer (10k for spending and 100K bonus you’ll have enough for coach to Israel.

Judah

I applied now and as the update said it showed pending. I called right away with the number that appeared on the screen and got approved in 3 minutes with a 20k “initial limit”.

yamkel

@Moshe: is that what they told you?

shmuli

I applied numerous times >I get ERROR on ss# and passcode and I put it in correctly . Could anyone help me What is the issue?

avrohom

dansdeals says get 200 cash back immediately. Citi web site get dollar back for every purchase, so need to do 200 purchases within 12 months to get the cash back.

Joe

first a word: i (& my family/friends)gained a lot so far following dans advices here the last few years, just have one question after reading that citi stopped 2 or 3/bm, since I’m applying anyway should i try going 4 another card? (Like someone said he want thru w a 2/bm) or rather dont bother…? Can it cause a prob. Getting approved?? Thanks so much if u see this!!!!

joe

“Moshe Says:

does he know what he’s talking about? can anyone confirm?

jds

@Moshe: @joe:
This is not even a little bit true. Not only have I never had/ been approved for a credit card, I have a delinquency and a judgment on my credit report, and still got approved for $8000.

MOTI84

Did anyone manage to meet the spending of 10,000 get the bonus and close the card before 30 days?
Is it possible to get the bonus before 30 days?

Dan's the man

Just wanted to update everyone. I received my first bill for the card and received the 100K bonus and the $200 statement credit (it’s for any spending – we didn’t spend any money with American Air. So $329 ($450 fee – $200 statement credit) and 2 trips to CVS (buying $5000 in vanilla reloads – the fee for the reloads was $79 in total) we got 100K AA miles. Not bad.

Eli

Hi,
I spent the money required at cvs 😉 with vanilla reload of course, paid abck the credit card my statement closed the 19th and i got the points on AA 2 days later, now they just put on my CC the annual fee for the next billing, by then my card will be closed, so yes it is possible to get the points and not being charged for the annual fee.
Thank you Dan!!!

JDS

@Eli:
Can you let us know if it works? Thanks.

Eli

My card is closed by now and didn’t have to pay the annual fee, and not only that I am also getting back a check for the 200$ statement. So I made 110k Plus 200$. I don’t think you can get any better than that.
Before closing the card they offered me a few options on order to keep te card but just denied all of them cause of headache otherwise if you are on top of it, it may be worth it, one of the offers was that for the next 16 statements they would give me 50$ credit for spending over 750$ plus a bonus of 750miles on top of the one you allready earn for the spending.

JJ

JUST APPLIED FOR ME & WIFE, GOT APPROVED AFTER CALL, THANKS DAN

tony c

WILL THE BENEFITS FROM THIS CARD WORK WITH DOMESTIC FLIGHTS BOOKED THROUGH BA? IE: FIRST BAG FREE, GROUP 1 BOARDING….?

Thanks

DOUGLAS

Simcha

@Anshel Schwartz:
Hey Anshel – happy Passover my man!
Tell me:
What other cc’s would be good to apply for at the same time with this card (3BM)?
Do you recommend?
How much do you value the reward at?

Thanks brother!

David

I just got the card and spent the required 10K. I would like to cancel but unfortunately I received this letter from Citi today that said my miles won’t post for 2-3 statements. Here’s what it said:
****
We are in the process of linking your Citi Executive® / AAdvantage® World Elite™ MasterCard® account to
your American Airlines AAdvantage® Number so we can post American Airlines AAdvantage® miles on your
American Airlines AAdvantage® account.
Some important information:
Please allow 2 billing periods for your AAdvantage® miles to begin posting to your AAdvantage®
account.
Your AAdvantage® miles for three will be combined, and the total will appear on your statement within
the 2 billing periods.
Future monthly AAdvantage® miles will appear on the statement on which they are earned.
****
I do want the 100K miles and I don’t want to pay the annual card fee. I will if I have to but I thought I could cancel and still get the miles. My 1st statement should arrive any day now. Thoughts? Gut Moed.

Help Dan

I applied for the card and don’t mind spending $250 for 100,000 Miles!!! I’m concerned about the miles expiring after I cancel. Here is what I found in the Terms and Conditions on the Credit Card Offer page:

“For benefit to apply, the Citi® / AAdvantage® account must be open 7 days prior to air travel AND, reservation must include the primary cardmember’s American Airlines AAdvantage® number 7 days prior to air travel. If your credit card account is closed for any reason, these benefits will be cancelled.”

Please help us all understand.

Thanks,
Dan

Hesder

I just got approved for the AA 100K after $10K in spending, plus the $200 credit!

Had to wait a few minutes on hold, then they asked me to wait a few more minutes, and then it was approved! I have been denied in the recent past for having too many credit pulls & too many Citibank cards, but they didn’t seem to care this time.

So… it is still working 🙂

Now I have to hope Staples restocks the $200 Visa Gift Cards, or find Vanilla Rewards.

Al

When I try this, it doesn’t look like the card is still available. Is the deal over??

orlandolover

has anyone had an issue cancelling the card and not getting their $$ back for the annual fee? i have called twice and each time they tell me that i cannot get my money back. any tips/tricks will be appreciated!

gav

tufftoby

Anonymous

@Eli: its a landing page, doesnt have the offer on actual page.

Tzippy

So how do you know you are playing for the 100K offer and not the 50 K offer?

Yehoshua

I signed up for the card and received 50,000 miles when I called to ask about it they said that if I could show them a published offer of the 100,000 they would credit the extra miles, where can I find this offer publicized?

Wendy

Dan,

I received the offer with a special code for the 100,000 mile credit card. Inadvertently our mailer was tossed which had the special code on it. We were required to respond by August 15th 2014. When I called customer services they claimed that without the mailer I wouldn’t be able to get the card and they couldn’t look up the number. However they did say if I had the phone number on the mailer that they could look up my customer code #. Does anyone have the mailer and could share that phone number?

A Canadian

Is this still alive??!! Link doesn’t work!
