Higher Sign-Up Bonuses for 2 Citi American Airlines Credit Cards
The ability to earn 60,000+ American Airlines miles with a single credit card is pretty amazing. So if you’ve been thinking about opening either of these cards, this is the time.
As a reminder, both cards come with:
- 2 American Airlines miles per $1 spent with American Airlines
- Free first checked bag for you and up to 4 travel companions on the same reservation (domestic flights only)
- Priority boarding for you and up to 4 travel companions on the same reservation
- 25% off eligible in-flight purchases
- Receive 10% of your redeemed miles back, up to 10,000 miles per calendar year (personal card only)
- Reduced Mileage Awards – get discounts up to 7,500 miles round-trip on award flights to certain airports
- NO foreign transaction fees
The small business version of the card also earns 2 American Airlines miles per $1 spent on select business categories (like car rental merchants and certain telecommunication merchants) including gas stations.
And now, the personal version of the card earns 2 American Airlines miles per $1 spent at gas stations and restaurants! Plus a $100 American Airlines flight discount after you spend $20,000 or more in purchases during your card year and renew your card.
The annual fee for the personal version is now $99 (raised from $95). The annual fee for the small business version is staying the same ($95). But both cards’ annual fee is waived for the first 12 months.
You’ll earn 60,000 American Airlines miles when you open the Citi AAdvantage Platinum Select and meet minimum spending requirements. And 70,000 American Airlines miles when you open the CitiBusiness AAdvantage Platinum Select and meet minimum spending requirements.
Plus, the personal version of the card has new benefits, like 2X miles spent at gas stations and restaurants! And a $100 American Airlines flight discount after you spend $20,000 or more in purchases during your card year and renew your card. But its annual fee is being raised from $95 to $99 (waived the first year).
