I wish I'd gotten this. Just checked my email, but they decided not to grace me with it. Which AA Visa do you guys have?

I received it on my Aadvantage world elite MC.

aaronl Aug 10, 12 10:21 pm

Received this too. I wonder if Amazon Payments are included. I'll probably try a small transaction to check if necessary.

amolkold Aug 10, 12 11:33 pm

9x at Amazon? WOW! I'm jealous.

I got a different email:


Now you can earn AAdvantageŽ bonus miles on some of your favorite summer activities, including eligible movie theater, amusement park, aquarium/zoo and arena/stadium event purchases with your CitiŽ / AAdvantageŽ card.

Enroll now to earn 3X AAdvantageŽ miles for every $1 you spend on eligible entertainment purchases, up to 2,500 AAdvantageŽ bonus miles, through 09/30/12.* That's 2 AAdvantageŽ bonus miles per $1 spent on eligible purchases!

I got it on the Visa Sig Plat.

Two key T&C:
  • "Eligible purchases exclude purchases made at warehouse clubs or discount stores, balance transfers, cash advances, convenience checks, items returned for credit, fees and interest charges." I was wary for a while about eligible purchases, but that phrase defines eligible.
  • "This promotion starts within 4 business days of when you enroll in this offer"

filelover Aug 10, 12 11:45 pm

For Amazon it is actually 10X = 1 regular + 9 Bonus

Max is 2500 Bonus Miles so you need to charge $278 (2500/9) to get the max points

My wife got it and I didn't. But just 2 months ago they had the 2 Bonus Miles (3X) miles on supermarket, gas, drugstore and dining which we both got.

First time I have seen Citi so aggressive (in my experience of course)

mrredskin Aug 11, 12 8:19 am

aa visa sig plat. i received. couldn't believe it, actually.

FYI: haven't used mine (except for award fees for flights booked a week ago) since min spend requirement back around march/april

PaulMSN Aug 11, 12 8:33 am

I received two emails -- one for 3x on summer entertainment (movies, amusement parks, aquarium/zoo and arena/stadium events) up to 2,500 miles,
and the Amazon 10x/Back-to-school 3x.

I did the entertainment offer first, but even though there are different invitation numbers, when I tried to register for the Amazon/Back-to-school offer it said I'm already registered.

So I don't know if it's either one or the other or if I'm registered for both.

No love here....

Smoove Aug 11, 12 2:46 pm

Wow--got 10X Amazon and 5X on office supply, dept store, electronics, and clothing. Same 2,500 cap as everybody else. MY wife and I have also received five balance transfer promotions in the mail in the past week from Citi, so yeah, seems like they're cranking up the marketing machine.

EDIT: This was on a TYP card, not the AA card. Still, I'll take it.
