The standard offer for the Citi AAdvantage Platinum Select World Elite MasterCard is 30,000 AAdvantage miles after you spend $1,000 in the first three months, but currently you can get 20,000 more miles — though it does require spending a bit more.

If you apply through Citi AAdvantage Platinum Select World Elite MasterCard and are approved, you’ll earn 50,000 AAdvantage miles after spending $3,000 in the first three months. That’s $2,000 more than you need to spend to earn the regular sign-up bonus, but the 20,000 extra miles are worth $300 based on TPG’s latest valuations, and 50,000 AAdvantage miles opens up many more redemptions than you’d be able to book with just 30,000 miles. For example, you could fly round-trip within the US in business class, or round-trip from the US to Europe in economy. This offer is available with the CitiBusiness AAdvantage Platinum Select MasterCard as well.
