With this Citi® / AAdvantage® Platinum Select® World Elite™ MasterCard®, from our partner Citi, which was designed for those who like to travel on American Airlines, you get one air mile reward for every dollar you spend on anything. You'll also earn double miles on all American Airlines purchases. There is no annual fee for the first year of membership with this AAdvantage credit card and you can earn a limited-time bonus of 50,000 bonus miles by simply making at least $3,000 worth of purchases with your card during the first three months.
The Citi® / AAdvantage® Platinum Select® World Elite™ MasterCard® offers some reduced air rewards fares to selected cities for domestic travel, so instead of waiting to accumulate tons of points you can cash in for a ticket after you have saved as few as 12,500 points. Award points can expire if you don’t use your AAdvantage credit card for 18 consecutive months, but when you use your Citi® / AAdvantage® Platinum Select® World Elite™ MasterCard®, the expiration clock gets reset so you don’t have to lose those points.
There is no annual fee for the first year, and then it's $95 per year thereafer, which is a pretty reasonable fee as far as airline rewards cards go. The on-going APR will be 15.99%-23.99% (variable), depending on your credit worthiness. Citibank does advertise its products on CompareCards.
For those who want to accumulate credit card rewards that can be used to fly on American Airlines, this a pretty decent card with an annual fee that is waived for the first year.
You don’t have to worry about points expiring as long as you use the card at least once every 18 months. You can earn 50,000 points within the first three months by using the card for at least $3,000 worth of purchases.
There is an annual fee of $95 starting the second year, and almost all of the benefits of this card are built around American Airlines travel, so if you don’t fly with that carrier it won’t do you much good.
