Other Considerations

Before applying for any Citi credit cards, it is important to understand their application rules and limitations. You are only able to apply for one Citi card every 8 days, and further you can apply for no more than two Citi cards every 65 days. 

There is no hard limit on the amount of open Citi credit cards you can have, but these rules are always enforced. On top of this restriction, you will not be eligible for the bonus on any Citi card if you have opened or closed the same card in the past 24 months.

Bottom Line

This is a great offer and an easy way to rack up American AAdvantage miles which can be used in a variety of ways. Such as saver award space for transatlantic business class flights to Europe, or for flights on their partner airlines such as Qatar & Etihad. Another great feature is the 10% mileage rebate on the personal card. There is no expiration date on this offer listed, but if you are interested I wouldn’t wait.
