Exclamation Citi AAdvantage Cards: Major Reductions as of 22 Sep 2019

Message shown on Citi AAdvantage Platinum Select World Elite Mastercard and Citi Prestige cards:

This reportedly applies to all Citi cards, with a partial exception for the Costco card, presumably because of Citi's contract with Costco.

Not good.

Damn; that makes the card pretty much worthless.

Ive had to use the trip delay benefit twice lately due to AA issues... I am definitely going to consider cancelling this card even though I spend quite a bit (20k+/year) on it right now.

Definitely "Exciting" -- been considering dropping a card or two for a while now and if this is true and the benefits not replaced with something else, it will make the decision way easier
I assume the annual fee is not being reduced by 75% to compensate

A travel card without travel benefits. Brilliant.
