Citi AAdvantage Cards’ 60k Offers Return

Back in July we watched the 60k sign up bonus offers on each of Citi's AAdvantage Platinum Select MasterCards (the personal and business) disappear.

Citi Cardholders Get 4+ Free Months of Amazon Music Unlimited

Do you have a debit or credit card issued by Citi?

More specifically, do you have a personal credit or debit card (not business), excluding the Costco and Chairman credit cards? If the answer is yes then you're eligible for Amazon and Citi's latest promotion: a four month free trial of Amazon's premium music streaming service, Amazon Music Unlimited.

New users can get a free month trial any time. Citi and Amazon's new deal is for a three month trial, but you can stack the two promotions for a total of four months.

New Citi ThankYou Points Transfer Partner: Turkish Airlines

You can now transfer ThankYou Points earned by your Citi Prestige, ThankYou Premier, ThankYou Preferred, Citi Chairman, or Citi Forward card to Turkish Airlines Miles & Smiles frequent flyer program at a rate of 1:1.

That means ThankYou Points now transfer to 14 airlines and one hotel loyalty program.

The only partners that don't normally have a 1:1 transfer rate are Hilton (1:1.5) and Jetblue (1:.5).

ThankYou Premier 50k Bonus Changing Tomorrow

The Citi ThankYou Premier Card currently has an offer of 50,000 bonus ThankYou Points after $4,000 in purchases within the first three months of account opening.

According to One Mile at a Time, that sign up bonus is changing tomorrow, August 22. This is not shocking considering that, for the majority of 2016, the ThankYou Premier had no sign up bonus whatsoever. Then in December of 2016, Citi came back with 40k points for a $3k minimum spending requirement bonus.

Link For 60k Offer on CitiBusiness Card (Better Than Public Bonus)

The Citi /AAdvantage Platinum Select MasterCard and the CitiBusiness / AAdvantage Platinum Select World MasterCard bonus are now each offering 30,000 American Airlines for spending $1,000 the card within three months of account opening.

Historically that is not a very high sign up bonus for either. Periodically Citi will raise the bonuses to 50k AAdvantage miles for spending $3,000 in three months, and not that long ago the public bonuses were 60,000 miles for each of the personal and business cards.

If you missed out on the public offers, there's no need to fret.

Etihad Guest Miles aren’t very good for booking First Class on the Etihad A380.
