Last week I let you know about the application on Reddit for the Citi American Airlines Platinum Select card that does NOT have the restrictive 24 month language usually seen alongside Citi credit cards.

The good news is, folks on Reddit who otherwise wouldn’t qualify for the sign-up bonus have reported applying for the card and being able to earn the sign-up bonus!

That said, there’s no guarantee Citi will honor the bonus for folks who already have or had the card in the past 24 months.

This American Airlines Card Application Does NOT Mention Citi’s New Rules

Link:   Citi® / AAdvantage® Platinum Select® World Elite™ Mastercard®

According to this link for the Citi American Airlines Platinum Select card, you’ll earn 50,000 American Airlines miles by spending $3,000 on purchases in the first 3 months of account opening.

Plus, there’s no mention of not being approved for the bonus if you’ve opened or closed a Citi American Airlines card within the past 24 months.

And commenters on Reddit have reported being approved for the card AND being able to earn the bonus!  Even if they weren’t currently eligible for the bonus.

Just remember, this application could be available because of an error in the system.  And I can NOT guarantee you’ll get the sign-up bonus.  So make sure to take screenshots of the offer and save any offer letters you receive in the mail!

And don’t forget, you’ll need to have 8 days in between Citi credit card applications.  And Citi will only allow you to sign-up for 2 personal credit cards every 65 days.

Bottom Line

Citi normally restricts folks from earning the sign-up bonus from a card if you’ve opened or closed a card with the same brand within 24 months.

But by using this link, you could (potentially!) earn 50,000 American Airlines miles when you spend $3,000 in the first 3 months of opening your Citi American Airlines Platinum Select card.

Folks on Reddit have reported successfully using the link, being approved, and being eligible for the sign-up bonus again!

That said, I can NOT guarantee it will work for everyone.  So do what you’re comfortable with.

Let me know in the comments if you earn the bonus!

  1. Hi Daraius, if the card is still open do we still get the bonus. It says the points for new accounts .

  2. I see you’re in a comment deleting mood today. Not good for business, sweetiepie.

  3. Yahooooo… I got approved by using above Link, Thanks to millionmilesecrects.

  4. I was approved for it again with the 50K miles

  5. Getting “Approved” for the card is not the same as getting the bonus miles after the 3K spend. Is that true or do you qualify for the 50K bonus when you get approved for the card?

  6. Application went to Pending

  7. John, You need to spend 3k to get the 50k bonus points.
