Hilary, I didn't mean to construe anything about the excellent links, tips and advice you provide here. I understand completely. As you surmised, Citi AMEX was not forthcoming nor helpful, the supervisor indicated that the burden of proof for such offer is on me. He said never in Citi AMEX history was there an offer like that and they have nothing to do with Citi Visa. Oh well, I'm happy with what I got from Citi Visa, thanks again for your page here!

Hilary, that's what I was looking for, a note about the miles for the Citi AMEX card. I called Citi AMEX, the phone number provided on the billing statement from Citi. I applied online in March via your link to the application page (Citi Select AMEX Card), did not get an answer right away, but was approved about week and a half or two later (out of the blue on a Sat or Sun evening) when they called me over the phone. At that time, I could not remember the exact number of miles but I briefly confirmed with the lady on the phone that I would get the sign on bonus miles as well as the extra miles after meeting the spend requirement and she said yes and all the miles should be posted accordingly to my AA account. My Citi Platinum Select was approved right away online. The 50,000 sign on bonus miles were posted by Citi Select Platinum Visa on the date that I got the approval. I've already met the spend requirement to get the extra 30,000(?) miles from Visa which should be posted soon I hope. But for Citi Select AMEX, I have not received any bonus miles from them, maybe I have confused the offers from Citi Visa and Citi AMEX? Should have done a screen shot in March......

Hi Hilary, I noticed this article gets updated every month. Is there a way for me to find the March version of this article (before your April and May updates)? I was thrilled to have found your useful info here in March and followed your wonderful advice, was approved for both personal Citi Platinum Visa and Citi Amex. Amex is now refusing to issue me the miles. I just wanted to see what the exact offer was for these two cards back in March as a Citi Amex supervisor claimed that they never offered 50,000 bonus miles in Amex history when I called to inquire about my bonus miles. Thanks for your help in advance!!
