I do not write about all credit cards that are available -- instead focusing on miles, points, and cash back (and currencies that can be converted into the same).
I just signed up for Citibank’s AAdvantage business card, taking advantage of the best-ever offer of 70,000 miles after spending $4,000 within the first 4 months of account opening.
I have had this card in the past. I’ve had it for my own business and I’ve had it for other businesses where I’m a decision-maker. So I’ve had the card multiple times over the last 15 years.
However I have not had this card in the last 24 months, which made me eligible to apply again and earn the bonus. I still have a nice seven figure balance of American Airlines miles, but I spend them. In fact for all of my complaints about AAdvantage I still use these miles more than any other airline currency for the rewards I want.
Effective July 22, 2018:
- Earn 2 miles per dollar on cable and satellite service
- Get 25% savings on American Airlines inflight Wi-Fi
That’s on top of existing benefits,
- 2 miles per dollar at gas stations, plus car rental and telecommunications merchants and eligible American Airlines purchases
- First checked bag free on domestic itineraries
- Preferred boarding
- No foreign transaction fees
- Companion Certificate yearly after spending $30,000
The card’s annual fee is going to be increasing from ($0 the first year, then $95) to $99.
