Got it too this afternoon.
Here is the main text:
Change the way you travel with the
CitiŽ Platinum SelectŽ / AAdvantageŽ Visa SignatureŽ card!*
Apply now, get the card and earn 50,000 American Airlines AAdvantageŽbonus miles after making $3,000 in purchases within the first 3 months of cardmembership1.
Rewarding benefits for rewarding journeys: •Your first checked bag free†
•Group 1 boarding2
•10% of your redeemed AAdvantageŽ miles back — up to 10,000 AAdvantageŽ miles each calendar year3
•Earn two AAdvantageŽ miles per $1 spent on eligible American Airlines purchases4
What's more, the annual card fee of $95** is waived for the first year!
The fine print in the email states among other things:
"* This CitiŽ / AAdvantageŽ card offer is valid only for a new CitiŽ / AAdvantageŽ account applied for by August 31, 2013 pursuant to this offer is not available to existing cardmembers or recent applicants for a CitiŽ / AAdvantageŽ credit card."
"This email was sent to XYZZZZ @ XYZZZZmail.ZZZ because you subscribe to AAdvantageŽ promotions emails."
So it appears that it is targeted very widely and may be available to anyone as per first quote above.
So it appears that the 50K is back.
