It already reflected the new AF.

Looks like they've pulled all the old links to the $450 card.

Don't you need to show the actual card?

I'm an AU so maybe it's different? Maybe the primary gets it attached to their account?

I spoke to an agent during the application process who told me that you can show your approval email at the lounge to gain access until you are loaded into the system or until your card arrives. She told me this proactively - I don't have any upcoming flights and hadn't asked about lounge access - so I'm 90% sure it is an actual AA policy.

Thanks. I will give it a try and report back.

Yes, it is attached to the AAdvantage account. All they have to do is scan the boarding pass.

On my July statement (just got it today), there's a box which says effective 9/23/2023 the terms of the card are changing - $595 AF and $175 AUs. Additionally, that the renewal fee of $450 will appear on the next statement.

So looks to me I'm good for another year - will decide July 2024 whether this card is a keeper. I only have one AU who rarely travels without me anyway - so will be dropping that AU card for sure.

Applied and approved 2 days after changeover. Card came today. Really impressed how they packaged it up in a fancy box filled with pamphlets describing all the old benefits. My Citi account reflects all the new benefits but youd think they could have printed new accurate materials to ship with the card.

Just following up. Lounge was crazy and I just turned around and went to an Escape lounge instead so cannot provide data.

AAHotels bookings

When you use the AAHotels.com portal, there is a base miles/loyalty earned for using there site AND then there is 10X per dollar spent. As an example, when rocketmiles had previous AA decent earned miles, I booked a hotel that was 1000 miles for one night. It is now 100 mile per night on rocketmiles but on aahotels it is 1000 miles. If I use the NEW AA Citi Executive card, I will also earn 10X per dollar spent, so for a $160 stay (no tax included), I would get 1000 miles via the portal PLUS 1600 via the CC for a total of 2600 miles/loyalty points. Correct?

As noted above, the 10X that you reference refers to RDM earnings only, not loyalty points.

In your example, the LPs would be (1) 1,000 base miles from AAHotels, plus (2) 1 LP per dollar spent on the Citi card, which would be $160. Thus the normal total would be 1,160 LPs. However, once the LPs for your hotel stay post, and if you are eligible (based on your LP earnings in the current status year), then you would also earn (3) another 200 or 300 LPs (20% or 30% of the base miles) from the general AA Loyalty Point Program as a "Loyalty Points Reward": https://www.aa.com/pubcontent/en_US/...nts/index.html . In sum, you would earn a minimum of 1,160 LPs for your stay; if you are eligible for one of the bonuses your total would increase to either 1,360 or 1,460 LPs.

Wondering if an Avis car rental booked on aa.com is eligible for the $120 credit, or does it have to be booked directly on avis.com?
