Since June 1, the Citi® / AAdvantage® Executive World Elite™ MasterCard® has offered 60,000 bonus American Airlines miles after spending $5,000 in the first three months.
The offer expires Wednesday (August 31, 2016.) The previous offer was 50,000 bonus miles.
American Airlines miles are the best for super-cheap economy redemptions and ultra-luxury redemptions. The Citi® / AAdvantage® Executive World Elite™ MasterCard® also offers Admirals Club lounge membership, meaning you can access over 90 American Airlines Clubs in airports around the world whenever you’re flying–even if you’re not flying on American. Plus you can bring in any two guests for free OR your spouse and all children under 18 for free on each visit.
The only hitch is that the card has a $450 annual fee. That’s actually cheaper than the price of a new Admirals Club membership, and the 60,000 bonus miles are worth $900 to me, so I don’t mind paying the annual fee.
After meeting the card’s minimum spending requirement, you’ll have at least 65,000 American Airlines miles. That’s enough miles for a lot of flying at American’s off peak prices:
- 3 off peak one ways to Hawaii
- 5 to Caribbean, Mexico, and Central America
- 3 to Central America and Northern South America
- 2 to Southern South America
- 3 to Europe [for 67.5k miles]
- 2 to East Asia
Or go for luxury and use you American Airlines miles to book:
- Cathay Pacific First Class to anywhere in East Asia
- Etihad First Class to anywhere in the Middle East or Indian Subcontinent
- Japan Airlines First Class
- Qantas First Class
- Malaysia Airlines First Class
If you’ve been wanting to get the Citi® / AAdvantage® Executive World Elite™ MasterCard® with 60,000 bonus American Airlines and just haven’t gotten it yet, don’t delay any longer. The offer ends Wednesday.
