Citi AAdvantage Platinum 50k Offers Dying
Yesterday I read a post over on MileValue saying that he was going to have to pull his 50k affiliate links for the AAdvantage Platinum Mastercard 50k offer today. He suggested that the public offer may be going back down to 30k.
This morning I checked the American Airlines site and found the following:
Then I went to the Citi site and found this:
So it does look like the 50k offer is “officially” gone. Fortunately there may still be hope.
I have long looked to Flyertalk wikis to find zombie links. These links sometimes stick around for months after an offer is officially pulled. Thankfully the Flyertalk thread for these cards is among the most active and up to date.
After seeing the reduced offers, I headed over to this thread and clicked on links in the wiki. Luckily some of the 50k links still work. There is no way to know how long they will last. It could be hours or months. In my experience if the application says 50k, then Citi will honor that bonus.
If you were thinking about applying for a Citi AAdvantage Mastercard then you may want to consider doing it now. With the pressure from Barclay’s now gone, it seems like Citi has gone back to their normal 30k offer and who knows how long it will be before an increased bonus returns.
