100,000 Mile Signup Bonus for Citi Executive American Airlines MasterCard

Last week I wrote about an offer for a 75,000 mile signup bonus for the Citi Executive / AAdvantage World Elite Mastercard.

I applied and was approved for that card myself. It requires $7500 in spending within 3 months, comes with a $100 statement credit, and is the $450 annual fee card that includes American Airlines lounge membership. The card also offers 10,000 elite qualifying miles after $40,000 in spend during a year.

In the comments to that post, reader MilesAbound noted that there seemed to be a 100,000 mile offer for the card out there.

And it turns out that he was correct. Here’s the application link.

  • 100,000 American Airlines miles after you make $10,000 in purchases within 3 months of account opening.
  • $200 in statement credits on purchases within 12 months of account opening.

The best public offer for the card is 60,000 points after $5000 spend within 3 months.

It’s a big spending requirement and a big fee, but I consider the miles to be worth it, and it’s great to see such big signup bonuses back.

None of the links in this post are ‘mine’ and I do not receive anything if you choose to apply for cards using them. I cannot independently vouch for the details of the offer, however they all appear to function properly at the time of this writing. As always, take screen shots.
