And get additional perks like 2X American Airlines miles per $1 spent on telecommunications, rental car companies, and gas stations. And a $99 Companion Ticket good for a coach domestic flight after spending $30,000 on purchases per cardmember year.
Remember, Citi will NOT let you to earn the sign-up bonus from more than one personal card of the same “brand” within 24 months. For example, if you’ve opened or closed the Citi® / AAdvantage® Executive World Elite™ Mastercard® in the past 24 months, you would NOT be eligible for the personal Citi AAdvantage Platinum sign-up bonus.
However, there’s an exception if you’ve had the CitiBusiness AAdvantage in the past 24 months. You can CAN earn the sign-up bonus on the personal card, because Citi says:
- American Airlines AAdvantage® bonus miles are not available if you have had any Citi® / AAdvantage® card (other than a CitiBusiness® / AAdvantage® card) opened or closed in the past 24 months.
