This cannot be overemphasized.

We just got another mailer (30K for $750 spend in 3 mos, plus more miles for some absurdly large addl spend ($5K, IIRC)). My first reaction was this was a sweet deal twice as good as 60K/$3K, and could be churned hard, but then I read the T&C closely & found the 24 mos clause. So keep in mind that mailers will differ markedly in this respect.

And to be clear, in case anyone is not: "applicable only to new accounts" is nothing to worry about. All it means is that Citi won't cut you this deal on an account you already have; it doesn't mean you're DQed if you have a Citi AA card or have ever had one.
