Citibank is trying to entice would-be travelers with its newest co-promotion with American Airlines.
Citi is targeting current members of American’s AAdvantage frequent flyer program with a special Visa card that will enable users to earn up to 35,000 bonus miles. This is an attractive deal given that only 25,000 miles are needed for a domestic round-trip ticket on American Airlines or its partner carriers.
Upon approval, Citi Gold/AAdvantage Visa Signature cardholders can earn that bonus if they record at least $750 in charges within their first four months of membership. In addition, cardmembers will also earn a point for every dollar spent (though the maximum number of earnable bonus miles is capped at 60,000 per year).
The bank is also willing to waive the annual fee for 12 months for new Citi Gold/AAdvantage Visa Signature card applicants. The card comes with no pre-set spending limit, and there are no blackout dates for usage of the bonus miles for traveling (although seating is subject to availability).
