UPDATE: Deals no longer available.

The 75,000 mile Citi AA cards have been one of the top co-branded credit card deals of the past year. A lot of TPG readers have gotten these cards and then used the points for ultra-expensive Oneworld redemptions like British Airways and Cathay Pacific first class.

If you haven’t gotten in on them yet, you still have time. Per the offer T&C : This Citi® / AAdvantage® card offer is valid only for first-time Citi® / AAdvantage® cardmembers who apply pursuant to this offer for an account by February 28, 2011. The American Airlines AAdvantage® miles will appear as a bonus in your AAdvantage® account 8-10 weeks after you have met the purchase requirements.

A couple things: many people in this lengthy Flyertalk thread have reported being able to get two personal cards if you apply at the same time AND a business card – in essence, 225,000 miles in one fell swoop.

Just remember, you have to hit the spend requirement ($4k in three months), so make sure you can do that for each card before opening multiple. The first fee is waived for the first year, but you don’t want to waste a first time application on a bonus you’ll never be able to achieve. I’m sure Citi will offer more in the future, but whether they will be lucrative is TBD. If you want to go for 100,000 miles, check out this card, though I’m not sure when the offer expires.

    Just reached my 4k in spend this weekend. The statement period ends in March, and hopefully I’ll get my 75k in May. Then it’s trip-planning time!

    Don’t forget, these miles count towards your lifetime status on AA.

    I signed up for one of these a few months back, the same day my account was updated with the 4k in spend the bonus miles posted. I just wish I had known about the apply for both at the same time trick so I could have gotten 150k miles!

    I got my mom to apply for both (one online, one on the phone) and she was approved for both. Once she hits the spend with the 1st card she will be over 1M lifetime miles which will be a nice bonus. She just used a bunch of miles for a trip to Hawaii so this will be a nice way to quickly earn back those miles.

    Despite the apparent expiration date, I called Citi and was able to get instant approval for the Amex card with 75K bonus miles with $1500 spend in the first 6 months today. I also applied for the Visa version via the webiste linked in the FT thread and was also instantly approved for that one. Unfortunately no confirmation online of the 75K/1.5K spend but I will confirm that once the card arrives.

    CX F is my plan. :-) Of course the problem is that there are so many of these free miles floating around out there i wonder how hard a redemption will be when I am ready to book.

    This offer is still active. My wife just called the number last night (5/11/11) and applied over the phone. The # is 800-408-4954. The spend requirement was $4000 in the first six months. $85 annual fee waived for the first year.

  • karan c

    I scored 84,448 after charging 9448K in the first month.

    I’m wondering if I really want to keep this card? Any benefit to keeping it around if my other two cards which I plan to keep are:
    1) Amex Platinum
    2) British Airways

    And secondly, should I call and cancel or just leave it hanging around in my citi bank homepage…?

    Would greatly appreciate any input anybody has.

    YES!!!! I was approved for both cards. Phoned the number above and they confirmed that I will receive 75,000 miles on each card after spending $1500 on each card. Great deal!
