I’ll admit it up front, my Citi AAdvantage card does not see much spending action from me. In fact, it’s at the top of my list of cards I’ll be parting with in the next 6 months. However, that won’t stop me from taking advantage of a bonus mile offer for spend when they come along, and Citi is back with another. This time around my offer is for 3X AAdvantage miles for spend at grocery stores, gas stations, drugstores, restaurants, and commuter transportation merchants.
The offer is good from enrollment through December 31, 2015, but caps out at 2,500 miles. I don’t know about you, but I’ll hit that threshold long before December! This is at least the third targeted offer I’ve received from Citi on my Citi AAdvantage Executive card this year, which makes me think that Citi has noticed that my spend has tapered down to nil and they want to see more card use. I can understand that, but I’m not sure 2,500 miles is enough to tempt me away from other currencies like Ultimate Rewards. We’ll see what happens and I definitely enrolled in the offer.
While this offer is targeted, it’s always fun to hear from readers who received the same or similar offers. Let’s compare in the comments section. Did you get an offer? What was it? Which Citi AAdvantage card do you carry?
