A 100K Citi Executive AAdvantage Card is being offered, even better than the 75K Citi Executive AAdvantage Card offer I posted about a few days ago, if you can manage the increased spend: $10,000 over the first 3 months, instead of $7500. Here are the details:

  • Earn 100,000 AAdvantage miles after spending $10,000 within the first 3 months of card membership
  • Earn $200 in statement credits on purchases within 12 months of account opening
  • Enjoy Admirals Club membership (value of $475)
  • First checked bag free
  • Earn 10,000 Elite Qualifying Miles (EQM) after spending $40,000 each calendar year
  • No foreign transaction fees 
  • Earn two AAdvantage miles per $1 spent on eligible American Airlines purchases
  • Chip and signature card
  • $450 annual fee (not waived)

Note that, similar to the updated terms of most Citi AAdvantage cards, there's a caveat that you're not eligible if you're a current Citi AAdvantage card holder or recently applied for a Citi AAdvantage card. That hasn't stopped many folks from receiving the signup bonus for this card, but as always, your mileage may vary and it's important to read the fine print:

 This Citi® / AAdvantage® card offer is only valid for new applicants for a Citi®/AAdvantage® account applied for pursuant to this offer and is not available to existing cardmembers or recent applicants for a Citi® / AAdvantage® credit card.”

Getting Approved

If you don't get instant approval, you may need to wait to call in: apparently the response has been so overwhelming that Citi's computer systems have shut down (not kidding!) Try calling 800-695-5171 tomorrow, Wednesday.

A few of my favorite uses of AAdvantage miles are Cathay Pacific First ClassEtihad First Class and Qantas First Class. Folks that have the time and inclination to explore a lot of destinations on one trip should also check out the American AAdvantage Oneworld Explorer Award Chart and Rules since it has some great uses, especially now with Qatar joining Oneworld.

You could also fly American Airlines' new 777-300ER First Class to Europe–there's actually very good availability this April on the JFK-LHR nonstop, although poor availability after that going into the summer.

If your goal is Europe and you can't find AA availability for your dates, British Airways First Class and Business Class is also a possibility, although note that you will have to pay rather steep fuel surcharges.
