75,000 American Miles For Spending $3,000
I acquired two American Airlines credit cards from Citi this week. The first one was their small business card with 30,000 bonus miles after spending $1,000 and no annual fee the first year. This seemed like an easy and fast way to add to my AAdvantage account. The next day I received a direct mail piece offering 45,000 miles after spending $2,000 and no annual fee the first year. This sounded like a good deal and I signed up. I was accepted for both cards and will now have a nice pile of miles when my US Airways miles are merged into AAdvantage. JAL and Cathay Pacific sound like nice airlines to fly and soon I’ll have the mileage balance to enjoy both in first class (award space is another matter).
Yes, there is an offer for 100,000 AA miles from Citi, but it requires $10,000 spent in three months and a $475 annual fee (lounge access is included); I prefer my arrangement.
