So do I understand correctly, Citi ThankYou points can’t be converted directly to American Airlines miles? It’s a cash incentive, albeit a good 1 in straight dollar amounts. Except I rarely PAY for an airline ticket since I use miles!
Are there any credit cards that currently have a sign-up bonus for 50,000 American Airlines miles?

Will using a credit card that charges foreign transaction fees, such as the Citi AAdvantage Platinum Select MasterCard, in Puerto Rico incur fees? I wasn’t sure if Puerto Rico was considered “foreign” to US banks.
Great question, Antonio!
Purchases made in Puerto Rico (and other US territories like American Samoa, Guam, Northern Mariana Islands, or the US Virgin Islands) are generally NOT considered foreign transactions.
Will You Be Charged Foreign Transaction Fees on Your Puerto Rican Vacation?
I can’t guarantee the rules for every bank. I called the major banks and NONE add foreign transaction fees to purchases made in US territories.
But a few require the purchase to be in US dollars! I’ll explain.
