Thursday Giveaway: 25,000 American Airlines AAdvantage Miles and Admirals Club Passes from Citi

When American Express Platinum cardholders lost access to the American Airlines Admirals Clubs and US Airways Clubs in March, the only cards that would get you into the Admirals Club were the Citi Executive AAdvantage World Mastercard (which comes with full Admirals Club membership) and more recently, the Citi Prestige, which just added Admirals Club access (not membership though) to its benefits.

Last week, however, we wrote that during the month of April, Citibank is providing complimentary One-Day Passes to any domestic US Admirals Club lounge or US Airways Club to travelers whose credit cards no longer provide complimentary access (specifically the American Express Platinum Card and Business Platinum Card).

Nothing like getting yet another card and yet another 100,000-mile bonus
Carrying this in your wallet ensures entrance to the Admirals Club all the time!

Now, in honor of this promotion, the good people at Citibank have generously donated several prizes for us to give away to lucky TPG readers.

The Grand Prize is 25,000 American Airlines AAdvantage miles plus a 4-pack of Admirals Club One-Day passes, and there are two runner-up prizes of 4-packs of Admirals Club One-Day passes.

To enter, comment on this post or on our Facebook page about what your favorite part of the Admirals Club experience is. Is it the ability to kick off your shoes and have some downtime between connections? Perhaps the business centers where you can print important documents or private rooms to take a conference call? For me, I like to get in there, set up my computer, check in on the world, send some emails, and have a glass of wine and a light snack before my flight. Whatever it is, enter by 5pm ET on Monday, April 21 to be eligible. You can only enter once per medium. The winner will be chosen at random and announced next week.

And the Winners of Last Week’s Prize of A Pair of Bose Noise-Cancelling QC15 Headphones Is…

Last week we spoke about the concept of relaxation on flights, and what it takes to get you to that sweet place of comfort. Perhaps it’s a cocktail, maybe it’s watching the in-flight entertainment, or perhaps reading a book, to each his own. I always travel with my Bose Noise-Cancelling QC Headphones, they are always providing me with the perfect sense of calm at 35,000 feet! I asked what how you relaxed, and TPG Facebook fan Matt O seems to have mastered the art of relaxation to a t!:

I don't go anywhere without my Bose headphones.
I don’t go anywhere without my Bose headphones!


“Here is what I do – 1) Make sure that all my stuff is laid out before I sit down. Organization is key! 2) Before I leave the house, I always wear loose fitting break away North Face pants and wool socks. 3) Sit down, remove shoes, and slide those under the seat in front of me. Wool socks will keep your feet warm. 4) Put on my headset, and turn on my SLEEP app on my iPhone while people are boarding the plane. By the time we leave the ground, I feel like I have been to the spa. ” 

Congrats Matt, we hope these headphones help you relax even more!
