There is a new working link out to earn 60,000 American Airlines AAdvantage miles after opening a Citi AAdvantage Platinum Select World Elite Mastercard and spending $3,000 in the first three months. Even better, Doctor of Credit reports that many people have continued to report being able to match to a 75,000 point offer via secure message.

While not quite as good as the now-expired 60K offer on the Barclaycard Aviator Red (since that offer only required a single purchase and payment of the annual fee), this offer still beats the “standard” 30K-mile offer. Additionally, Doctor of Credit reports that some people continue to have success matching to a 75,000 point offer via secure message. See more about that in their post. Keep in mind that Citi will not give you a signup bonus if you have opened or closed a Citi AAdvantage account in the past 24 months.
While AA miles have gotten a bad rap in recent years, I’ve anecdotally been seeing more domestic saver availability over the past few months. Furthermore, partner awards for international business and first class tend to yield the best value of American Airlines miles. View from the Wing recently reported on wide open business class availability from New York to Asia on Cathay Pacific — which would cost 70,000 American airlines miles. This offer would get you most of the way to a one-way business class seat to Asia — or more than enough if you’re able to get matched to 75K.
