Citi AAdvantage Platinum 50K Offer without 24 Month Bonus Language


During this past year Citi changed their card bonus rules to limit how often applicants can get a bonus. Currently you can only get a bonus on a card if you have not opened or closed a card within the same product family within the past 24 months. Right now an application has surfaced on Citi’s website without that language.

The Offer

Earn 50,000 American Airlines AAdvantage® bonus miles after $3,000 in purchases in the first 3 months of account opening

Key Terms

$95 annual fee is waived the first year.

Need to Know

  • In the past, people who have applied through links without the 24 month language have been successful in getting their bonuses.
  • You can find more info about this offer along with the application link in this Reddit thread.

HI Shawn,

Thanks for the info… I am wondering.. I saw that Plastique is coding as a small business. Would it be safe to use Plastique to make your churn on this card for 3K spend required — or the A/E Platinum card with a 15 k spend?

Good luck with that! I applied for a similar card (also without the 24 month restriction) back in August and still never got the bonus. After numerous calls, a lot of wasted time, and being transferred to “reservAAtions” a half dozen times I finally got a supervisor who told me their computer said I wasn’t eligible and there was no way to override it. Got 5k as a “courtesy”.

Screenshots + CFPB complaint if necessary = should be fine.


What is CFPB?


Wife just got the letter in the mail confirming the 3K spend/50K bonus. Looks like this works!


Does this card come with the 10% AAdvantage miles rebate? Thanks!
