Two months ago I wrote about Citibank’s offers for either 75,000 American Airlines miles (after $1500 in purchases within 6 months) or 100,000 American Airlines miles (full bonus after $10,000 in purchases within 12 months) for their co-branded Visa, Visa Business, and American Express.
These current offers appear to expire October 31, 2010. So if you’re on the fence, they’re still available, time to jump on them. While we’ve seen the occasional targeted American Express Platinum 100,000 mile signup bonus (with $495 fee..) and last year’s British Airways Visa 100,000 mile bonus, I’d still rank these bonuses as the best credit card offers ever made.
Here are the links again…
- 75,000 miles after $1500 in purchases within 6 months, no fee the first year —
75,000 mile signup bonus: Visa
75,000 mile signup bonus: Visa Business
75,000 mile signup bonus: American Express (still issued by Citi, of course, not Amex)
- 100,000 miles: 50,000 miles after $750 in purchases within 4 months, and another 50,000 miles after $10,000 in purchases within 12 months, no fee the first year —
100,000 mile signup bonus: Visa
100,000 mile signup bonus: Visa Business
100,000 mile signup bonus: American Express (still issued by Citi, of course, not Amex)
However, one of the most frequently asked questions is “but those links don’t say I’ll get the bonus!” And that’s true. These are links from e-mails that take you directly to applications, and they’ve been working successfully for the past two months. People call up Citibank after applying, if they’re concerned, and Citi reps read off the promotion they’ve signed up with.
Still, it’s always comforting to see the offer in advance, to be able to print it in case of any problems.
And now a website has been discovered for the (3) 75,000-mile credit card signup offers.
- No fee the first year
- 75,000 bonus miles after $1500 in purchases within 6 months
- Offer available for the Visa, American Express, and Visa Business cards
I’m not aware of a website for the 100,000-mile offers, no worries the links above still work. If you have a link to a landing page displaying the 100,000-mile signup bonuses please share it in the comments. (But for many, the lower spending requirements for the 75,000 mile bonuses represent the easier and better offer.)
But it’s nice to see a landing page explicitly offering that 75,000 mile bonus.
