Citi just sent an email that leaked tomorrow’s installment of American’s “30 Deals in 30 Days” promotion:

“It’s the 30th Anniversary of the AAdvantage® program.

Thank you for being a CitiBusiness® / AAdvantage® cardmember! To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the AAdvantage program, the AAdvantage program would like to thank you with 1,000 AAdvantage bonus miles . In order to qualify for this offer, you must provide the primary cardmember’s AAdvantage® number and have an open credit card account. This limited 30th anniversary offer starts on May 10th, at 12:01am CST. To be sure you are one of the qualifying recipients, visit www.aa.com/AAdvantage30 on May 10th to register and reserve your bonus miles. ”

I’m not sure if there will be a limited number of points to give away, but it seems like the offer will be open to everyone who registers and has a Citi AA card. I wouldn’t lose any sleep over this, but make sure you register tomorrow so you can claim your free points (my favorite kind!)

If you don’t have a Citi AA card, you can get one the Citi / AAdvantage Gold World Elite Mastercard 25,000 point sign-up bonus when you spend $750 within the first 3 months. The card comes with a $50 annual fee waived the first year and currently all miles earned, including credit card miles, count towards lifetime elite qualification.

The Platinum Card® from American Express

The American Express Platinum card has some of the best perks out there: cardholders enjoy the best domestic lounge access (Delta SkyClubs, Centurion Lounges, and Priority Pass), a $200 annual airline fee credit as well as up to $200 in Uber credits, and mid-tier elite status at SPG, Marriott, and Hilton. Combined with the 60,000 point welcome offer -- worth $1,140 based on TPG's valuations -- this card is a no-brainer for frequent travelers. Here are 5 reasons you should consider this card, as well as how you can figure out if the $550 annual fee makes sense for you.
