If you applied for the Citi AA Platinum card recently, you may be in luck! Citi is currently offering a (targeted) 60,000 AA mile sign up bonus on this card. If you applied for the 30,000- or 50,000-mile bonus within the past 90 days, Citi will match the higher sign up bonus!
Simply send Citi a message on your online account requesting that they match the higher bonus on your card. You should hear back within a few hours. Even if you are using the current loophole to get your second or third card, they will still match the bonus as long as you are within 90 days from your application! I was able to get the match on our second and third cards… boom, extra 20,000 miles per person!
This is the message I sent:
“Hi – It has come to my attention that a 60,000 point offer was available for this card. Could you please match that offer for my account with an additional 10,000 points? Thank you very much for the consideration! ”
This was the response from Citi:
Go ahead and try this simple trick, and hopefully you can grab some extra AA miles! Cheers!
