Does this card have access to Citi Merchant Offers?

Greg The Frequent Miler

I don’t know. Probably

Allan

How can you tell if you are beyond the 48 month period for AA bonus? If they sent an invitation with a code in the mail does that mean I will get the bonus?

Nate

please consider updating the 24 month language to say 48 month:

American Airlines AAdvantage® bonus miles can be earned by new Citi® / AAdvantage® Platinum Select® card cardmembers approved through this offer. American Airlines AAdvantage® bonus miles are not available if you have received a new account bonus for a Citi® / AAdvantage® Platinum Select® account in the past 48 months.

[…] Business and Barclaycard Aviator personal cards coming with 50K miles after first purchase and the Citi AAdvantage Platinum Select and Citibusiness AAdvantage cards offering 60K after $3K spend in 3 months, it’s pretty easy […]
