I received it for my AA Visa as well.

*In order to qualify for this offer, the account must be open and current at all times. If your account is closed for any reason, including if you convert to another card product, you may no longer be eligible for this offer.

You may receive more than one communication regarding this bonus offer with a reply-by date of 9/10/12; however, if you have already enrolled in this offer, no further action is required. AAdvantageŽ miles are only earned on eligible purchases. This promotion starts within 4 business days of when you enroll in this offer and will end on 9/30/12.

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

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"

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)

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.

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.
