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.
