Citi / AAdvantage Executive Cardmembers get $225 Credit Upon Renewal
Citi is giving AAdvantage Executive Cardmembers $225 credit upon renewal, and also extending certificates. They reached out today to provide the following information.
At Citi, we are committed to ensuring that our credit card products continue to drive value for our customers throughout these unprecedented times. Given the impact of COVID-19 on travel and the temporary closure of Admirals Club lounges, we are notifying eligible Citi / AAdvantage Executive cardmembers who had an open account as of March 31, 2020 and prior that we will be issuing a one-time courtesy credit of $225 upon card renewal.
Cardmembers will see the credit within two billing statements after the annual fee bills to their account. Citi, alongside our partner American Airlines, are looking forward to welcoming our cardmembers back to the Admirals Club lounges soon.
In addition, we’re pleased to offer a 6-month extension to Flight Discount certificates with an expiration between March 31, 2020 and May 31, 2021 held by existing Citi / AAdvantage Platinum Select cardmembers. Also, existing Citi / AAdvantage Business Platinum cardmembers who hold a companion certificate with an expiration date of December 31, 2020 will receive a 6-month extension, with these certificates expiring on June 30, 2021.
This is similar to what we have seen with American Express premium cards recently. The Citi AAdvantage Executive Card has an annual fee of $450, so the credit equals exactly half of that. The credit will be issued within two billing statements.
