In March of this year Mrs. paradox converted her AA Plat Select MC to a Citi Double Cash because she didn't want to pay the annual fee, and we weren't offered a $95 credit to offset the AF as in the past. She just received a targeted mailer offering 50K miles after $3K spend in 3 months. The T&C state that "This offer is only valid for new accounts". There is no mention of the 24 month restriction.

I called Citibank and was told she can get the card but is not eligible for the miles. I then read the wiki (yes, I should have gone there first) and saw that the invite code may provide a loophole. Should we just rely on the wiki and apply? We don't want the card without the miles, nor do we want the credit pull. I'd call Citi again, but I was on hold for nearly 30 minutes and would like to avoid repeating that if I can.
