Update: The current offer for the Citi Platinum Select AAdvantage World MasterCard is 30,000 miles after spending $1,000 miles within the first 3 months.

Offer expired February 28, 2011.

Citi has been running some pretty bold sign-up offers recently, including the 75,000/100,000 offers that ended Oct 31.

Luckily, they’ve launched a new promo thats good until February 28, 2011.

75,000 miles when you spend $4,000 in the first 6 months. No annual fee for the first year, $75-$85 thereafter depending on Business vs Personal.
Some tips:
1) You can apply for both personal and business cards
2) Its possible to apply for two personal cards, but you need to submit both applications at the same time. This is risky, but people have been known to get two cards approved. Just make sure you can meet the spend requirements.
3) It takes about a week to get your card
4) Miles will post a couple days after the statement in which you meet your $4,000 spend.

I love AA miles- they can be used on all Oneworld partners, as well as Air Tahiti Nui, Air Pacific, Alaska, El Al, Gol, Gulf, Hawaiian and Jet. They can also be converted into Hilton points at a 1:2 ratio, so this 75,000 offer = 150,000 Hilton points.

Safe travels! And if you need help using your newly earned AA miles, feel free to submit a request for my professional award planning services.

    Thanks points guy. I signed up for the card under this offer, but so far it is not clear that I will get this promo. Is there any way to confirm before spending the $?

    I’d call Citi customer service- they will be able to confirm. You should be fine though as long as you went through the link.

    This is a great promotion… I signed up and started using the card in a week. I had a question. After I spend the 4K (in say, 3-4 months), do the miles get posted directly to my American account, or do I have to go through Amex to redeem them? The reason I ask, if I decide to cancel the card prior to incurring the second year fee, will I lose the miles? Also, after canceling can I sign up again for this a few months, provided the promotion is still on, and get more miles?

    @Mihir – You dont go to amex to redeem them.. its a citi card. they automatically go to the american advantage account you selected. You wont lose the miles if you pay off the statement balance and then cancel. no you cant re-sign up and get the points again unfortunately otherwise I would do it too haha.
