Earn 10,000 Extra AAdvantage Miles

AA Credit Card Bonus

Want to earn 10,000 extra AAdvantage miles? Citi recently started offering targeted 60k mile offers for the Citi AAdvantage Platinum Select Mastercard. The good news is if you applied for the card in the last 90 days you can get matched to the 60k offer, even if you never received the 60k offer in the mail! I applied for the card about a month ago, and I was matched the 10,000 extra AAdvantage miles this morning via a message to my Citi account.


Message I sent via Citi Secure Message:

I recently became aware of the 60,000 Citi AAdvantage Platinum Select offer. Could you please match this offer to my recently opened card offer?



Response from Citi:

10,000 extra AAdvantage miles


Mrs. TT and I were both matched to the 60k offer! Those extra 20k AAdvantage miles are enough points for an off-season one-way trip to Europe! Even if you don’t have the Citi AAdvantage Platinum card, you can still apply for the 50k offer and get matched shortly after approval. Make sure to check our thrifty tips, because you can likely apply for the Citi AAdvantage Platinum card again, even if it’s only been a couple months since your last approval!

Bottom Line 

Even with the upcoming AAdvantage devaluation, 10,000 extra miles still go along way! Even after the devaluation, my favorite one-way business class tickets to Europe are only 57,500, which will be attainable with the extra 10,000 miles!

    It didn’t work when I tried it. I sent the same message from two different accounts and they were not able to process my request. I tried to call in and see if actually speaking to someone would help but they had the same response…

    • Interesting. Sorry to hear that. Could be they have been inundated with requests and they are no longer matching offers. We were just approved for the extra 10k two days ago. Anyone else have any data points?

        Well it worked for me. I got an extra 10k. I got my credit card yesterday and got the offer matched today.

    Worked perfectly, thanks TT!

    Dear XXXX,

    As a goodwill gesture, we have added the additional 10,000 AAdvantage miles to your account at this time.

    This adjustment will not be included with your original 50,000 bonus miles. This amount will be reflected with the regular statement miles reported on your next Citi billing statement.

    We appreciate this opportunity to assist you.
