I don’t always write about every credit card, and as I always say, DO NOT SIGN UP FOR A CREDIT CARD JUST BECAUSE SOME GUY ON THE INTERNET SAYS YOU SHOULD!

But, there is currently an offer on the Citi® / AAdvantage® Platinum Select® World Elite™ Mastercard®  that gives 60,000 American Airlines miles if you spend $3000 in the first 3 months of having the card.  There are reports from various blogs and people that are more in the know than me that this offer is changing tomorrow (Thursday July 13th).  We don’t know at what time, or what the new offer will be (most people assume lower) or even if the 60,000 mile offer will completely go away.

At the time of this writing, you can find this 60,000 American mile offer on our top credit card offers page (under travel cards).

What to do with American miles?

Finding SAAver space on AAmerican has proven hAArd to do lately but it doesn’t mean that American miles are worthless.  Ian had a good article a few weeks ago on 8 ways to use a “worthless” 1,000,000 American miles that gives you a few thoughts

Plus, as we mentioned in our post earlier in the day regarding “constant” signup bonuses, if you are meeting the minimum spend on an offer like this, you’re getting TWENTY AA miles for every dollar you spend – much better than any other regular spend.

Other benefits of the Citi® / AAdvantage® Platinum Select® World Elite™ Mastercard®

The Citi® / AAdvantage® Platinum Select® World Elite™ Mastercard® has a few other benefits besides the signup bonus.  Here are a few of them

The 24 month rule

Unfortunately, this card does have the language in the application indicating that you will not receive the signup bonus if you’ve opened or closed ANY Citi / American Airlines card in the past 24 months.
