Citi announced several new benefits for the Citi® / AAdvantage® Executive World Elite™ Mastercard®. This is the premium American Airlines co-brand that comes with American Airlines Club membership — and it offers up to 10 authorized user cards at no additional annual fee, each one offering access to American Airlines Admirals Clubs when flying American.
The card comes with an initial bonus of 50,000 miles after $5000 spend within the first 3 months of cardmembership – I have it and use it, in addition for lounge access, to earn 10,000 elite qualifying miles with $40,000 spend. The annual fee is $450, a better deal than buying lounge access directly from American.

While Citi eliminated travel protections and other ancillary benefits across nearly its entire card portfolio, including this card, they’ve announced some new benefits.
Mastercard has a series of new offers and Citi is promoting that several are available bundled with the Citi® / AAdvantage® Executive World Elite™ Mastercard®.
