How long does it take Citi/AA bonus miles to post?
How long does it take for Citi/AA cards' 25k bonus miles to post after reaching the $750 spending threshold? The terms and conditions say it takes 8-10 weeks, does anyone have any personal experience though?
Also, if the miles have posted to you AA account and then you cancel the card, is there a chance the miles may be removed from your account? I have heard from some that once the miles are in your AA account, they cannot be removed. Others have said that if you cancel your card within some time frame (60 days, 6 months, have heard conflicting reports) after the miles post, they will remove the miles from your account. Anyone with personal experience with this as well?
I've opened (and closed) many of these cards over the last couple of years. Miles always post to my account within 3 days of the statement closing date if you've made the $750 spend. Even before that, you can log on to the citicard site the day after the statement closes and see a pdf of your statement which will show the miles awarded. I usually pay the card off on before the statement closing date, wait the 2 or 3 days for the miles to post to my account, and close the card. Never had any miles revoked from either Citi AA personal or business accounts.
