Take AAdvantage Of Mailer Codes!

The drought is over! I finally got two mailer codes after a long period of not receiving any. Here is where I stand with Citi this year:

  • Feb 04, 2019 – Citi Platinum AAdvantage
  • Feb 26, 2019 – Citi Platinum AAdvantage
  • Apr 05, 2019 – Citi Prestige
  • Apr 28, 2019 – Citi Platinum AAdvantage
  • Jun 24, 2019 – Citi Business Platinum AAdvantage

Keep in mind the rules with witi as outlined in my previous post here:

Citi 1/8: Submit one application every eight days
Citi 2/65: 2 applications every 65 days

Application #1 = Day 1 (not impacted by any rules)
Application #2 = Day 9 ( to account for 1/8 rule)
Application #3 = Day 66 ( to account for 2/65 rule)
Application #4 = Day 74 (to account for 1/8 AND 2/65 rules)

Business cards: Citi 1/90: For business cards, one business card application every 90 days. Business cards count towards the 1/8 AND 2/65 rules. Business and personal cards are separate applications, unlike other banks.

I will have to wait 90 days after June 24, 2019 (September 22, 2019) since that is when I last got my Citi Business Card. The last card I got was my third Personal AA Platinum on April 28, 2019 which I am well past the 65 and 8 day limits.

I checked the application and it made no mention of the 24 month language. Looks like I will be getting my second Executive card! In the meantime look out for these mailers!

I also get e-mails from them. Last one was on 16 July but with a 10-digit code. Here’s the text in the e-mail:
Earn 50,000 American Airlines AAdvantage® bonus miles after making $2,500 in purchases within the first 3 months of account opening with the Citi® / AAdvantage® Platinum Select® World EliteTM Mastercard®.

And my other friend got a business one that says:

Subject: XXXXX, you’re invited to our highest bonus mile offer – earn 65,000 bonus miles

Earn 65,000 American Airlines AAdvantage® bonus milesafter $4,000 in purchases within the first 4 months with the CitiBusiness® / AAdvantage® Platinum Select®World Mastercard®. The annual fee of $99 is waived for the first 12 months.

    The AA focus is interesting due to two things which I’m not sure are super obvious in our MLA circle:

    -CAC ID when flying on AA gets you free AAdmiral access, so I don’t need the card

    -You get FREE seat upgrades when checking in at the kiosk AFTER the attendant verifies your ID for the free checked bags. You have the option to change your seat on the kiosk after you’ve inputed your bag info and if you notice, all the Main Cabin Extra seats are $0! I’ve only tried this on government fare tickets, which prohibits biz and up, but I’ll be trying it when I fly them for leave to Cancun in September and will report back with the DP.

      You are absolutely right on the AAdvantage executive card! There is no benefit for the active duty member since we get the luggage, lounge, and seat upgrades for free. I have even been able to upgrade avios booked ticket (BA and Iberia) using the kiosk trick! The only benefit of the AA card (besides the 60k points) is to resell lounge access to 10 AUs, for dearly departed AD members, also for friends and family so they have access to the lounge when traveling without you!
