The Citi AAdvantage Platinum Select World Elite Mastercard is currently offering a sign-up bonus of 60,000 American Airlines AAdvantage miles after $3,000 in spending in the first 3 months. We’ve previously written about this increased offer. However, according to Sarah Gilbert at The Points Guy, this increased offer will end tomorrow, July 13, 2017.
Note that there is also the same increased offer on the Citibusiness version of the card, but that offer is not ending tomorrow per TPG. Also note that many readers have received targeted offers of 65,000 miles on these cards (my wife received targeted 65K offers for both the business and personal versions of this card). If you have old mail lying around, you might want to check for one of those offers.
Both of these offers are very good if you’re looking for AAdvantage miles. While AA miles aren’t very useful for flights on American Airlines these days since saver-level availability is almost nonexistent, there are still many valuable opportunities to use those miles with partners. Sixty-thousand miles will get you to Japan, Europe, or South America 2 one-way in business class on partners. The value can be even better when starting a trip in other regions of the world — I’ve found AA miles great for helping piece together my own round-the-world-type journeys by cherry picking sweet spots. Those interested in traveling domestically might be better off skipping this offer, whereas it can be great for international travel.
If you’re thinking about applying for this card, it looks like time is running out on the 60K offer. Find more information about this card and many others on our Best Offers page.
