I got an email last night from Citibank, announcing some changes to the Citibank American Airlines AAdvantage card



Citi AAdvantage benefit going away

The benefit that is going away is the $100 American Airlines flight discount that you get after spending $30,000 on the card.  Talk about your obscure benefit!  I can’t imagine that there are too many people that actually have used this!  (Cue 100 people mentioning that they use it in the comments!)

I mean if I’ve got $30,000 in spend, I’m definitely putting it on other cards!

If you are planning on getting that $100 credit, you’ll need to do it before your next card anniversary date after November 15th.

Citi AAdvantage benefit being added

In better news, the Citi AAdvantage card is joining the long list of cards that are eliminating foreign transaction fees.  Starting November 15, 2015, no more foreign transaction fees on the Citi AAdvantage card!

Finally, a credit card benefit change that is actually for the good!!!! 🙂
