Citi has a new public offer for 30,000 American Airlines miles for opening a new checking account. Not the best offer we have seen, but useful for those who value these miles and have not been targeted for better bonuses.
Open a new eligible checking account in the Citibank Account Package between 10/15/18 – 11/30/18 and get a bonus of 30,000 American Airlines AAdvantage miles when you complete the following requirements within 60 days:
- Spend at least $375 on qualifying purchases using your Citibank® Debit or ATM Card.
- Download the Citi Mobile App and log in to your new Eligible Checking Account.
Must not currently have or have had an account a Citibank consumer checking account within last 180 calendar days.
The Citibank account has a $25 fee waived with $10K balance. You’ll forfeit the interest that you might be getting somewhere else on that balance.
It also might be worth asking to have a month’s fee waived. Banks will do that for customers occasionally, especially in the first month or two.
Not the best bonus from Citi. We have seen offers for as much as 60,000 American Airlines miles in the past, but those have been through targeted mailers. You can also get cash bonuses, which some people might prefer over miles. Citi’s promotion actually says you will earn “30,0000 miles”, but I doubt they would give out 300K.
