American Mastercard Bonus

The American Airlines Mastercard is again offering no fee for the first year and 15,000 bonus miles with first purchase.

Citibank has been known to award the bonus miles even to people that have had the card in the past, despite terms that specify that the bonus can only be earned once.

Best practice is to print out the application page which mentions the 15,000 bonus miles and also to print out the terms and conditions which mentions no annual fee for twelve months.

  1. They took down the link, but not before I applied. However I only printed the application page and not the terms and conditions page. I’m hoping there won’t be a problem with anything, but if someone has the terms and conditions page saved, could you please email it to me? Or if you want to fax it, email me and I will give you my fax number. Thanks in advanced. 🙂
