Overview

The Citi Platinum Select AAdvantage World MasterCard is an excellent choice for a great signup bonus.  Plus it offers the usual collection of perks for flying AA (free checked bag, priority boarding, etc.).  This card offers a 10% annual rebate on awards up to a maximum rebate of 10,000 miles (i.e. 100,000 miles used).

Bottom Line

This card is subject to Citi’s 24-month restriction language: American Airlines AAdvantage® bonus miles are not available if you have had any Citi® / AAdvantage® card (other than a CitiBusiness® / AAdvantage® card) opened or closed in the past 24 months.  It’s usually got a great sign up bonus that is worthwhile if you are eligible to earn it.
