UPDATE: Several FlyerTalkers in this thread are reporting success!
We haven’t seen a 100K mile offer in a while, but Citi has shown up big. Just days after they offered a 75K mile bonus, the latest news is that they’ve upped that offer to 100,000 AAdvantage miles after spending $10,000 in the first 3 months of opening the card along with $200 in statement credits on purchases in the first 12 months.
Apparently this offer is from the Admiral’s Clubs and has a specific agent code tied with it, but using the application link, we’re able to directly access the offer. Just enter your name and click Proceed to Application; leave the codes blank.
I cannot say with full certainty that you’ll get the 100K bonus due to the agent code issue, but 100K miles is worth thinking about and waiting for others to comment with their experiences.
As always, take screenshots of the offer page and every step of the application process along the way! I do this for every credit card application, regardless how big or small. These screenshots may be your only recourse if you have difficulty obtaining the bonus offer.
$450 Annual Fee
The $450 annual fee that comes with this card is pretty steep, especially if you don’t value the Admiral’s Club access that highly. At least with this particular offer, the $200 in statement credits effectively brings the annual fee down to $250. For me, that’s a little bit easier to swallow for 100K AAdvantage miles.
