Citi AAdvantage Offers To Consider Post US Airways/AA Merger

With the recent US Airways and American Airlines merger, the US Airways Premier World MasterCard is no longer available. If you were interested in getting this card, here are some other card options that I recommend. Each will earn you useful AAdvantage Miles, which I value at 1.7 cents a piece according to the March 2015 edition of my Monthly Valuation Series.
