Citi AAdvantage Platinum Select Card, 50K Bonus Plus $100 Statement Credit

There’s a new offer for the Citi® / AAdvantage® Platinum Select® World Elite Mastercard that gives you 50K AA miles and a $100 statement credit. It is similar to the current public offer, but could end up being better if you can get matched.

50K + $100 Offer

For a limited-time:

  • Earn 50,000 American Airlines AAdvantage® bonus miles after spending $3,000 in purchases within the first 3 months of account opening
  • Plus new cardmembers can earn up to $100 in statement credits on eligible American Airlines purchases in the first 12 months of account opening.

Getting Matched For A Better Offer

The current public offer on the Citi website is for 60,000 AA miles after spending $3,000 within the first 3 months. There’s even a targeted offer for 65,000 AA miles.

If you apply for this 50K +$100 offer, you can send Citi a secured message and ask t oget matched for a 60K or 65K offer. If you succeed, then you come out with a best ever offer on this card. Citi is usually good with matching offers within 90 days, but might be harder for this one since it involves miles and statement credit.

Citi’s 24-Month Rule

Citi restricts bonuses to just one per product family per 24 months for either personal or business cards. So for example if you received a AAdvantage bonus recently, you can not get a second one again until 24 month after the last application. The worst part is that 24 month clock resets whenever you open OR close a card within that family. This application has that 24-month restriction, so it won’t be useful to most readers.

From time to time certain applications have surfaced on Citi’s site that don’t contain this bonus language, so if you’re not eligible for the bonus, you’ll have to wait for one of those applications to come back again.

Guru’s Wrap-Up

This is a very good offer on the card and could be better for some over the 60K offer, depending on your valuation of AA miles. If you’re successful at getting matched, then this is obviously better. If you just want the miles and don’t want to worry about statement credit for AA purchases, just take a look at these 60K offers on both the personal and business cards.
