Update: 50,000 Mile Citi American Airlines Card Without 24 Month Restriction

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.

So folks now have another free tool to help keep tabs on their credit!
