Citi is offering an increased bonus on the AAdvantage Platinum Select World Elite Mastercard once again, matching the best ever public bonus. The offer has the 24 month restriction.
Offer & Requirements
Earn 60,000 American Airlines AAdvantage bonus miles after $3,000 in purchases in the first 3 months of account opening.
Citi’s 24-Month Rule
Citi restricts bonuses to just one per product family per 24 months for personal and business cards. So for example if you received a AAdvantage bonus recently, you can not get a second one again until 24 month after the last application. The worst part is that 24 month clock resets whenever you open OR close a card within that family. This application has that 24-month restriction, so it won’t be useful to most readers.
From time to time certain applications have surfaced on Citi’s site that don’t contain this bonus language, so if you’re not eligible for the bonus, you’ll have to wait for one of those applications to come back again.
This is the highest bonus we’ve seen on this card, but sadly the offer has the the 24-month restriction in the terms. That most likely will disqualify most readers.
