OK so all we had to do was make a new aadvantage account for each mailer? i believe AA would merge them upon request if you needed to pool points in that case. that is a ridiculous interpretation and...

There are two issues at play here... 1) frequency and 2) transerrability of bonus offers. To date, the question of transferrability of mailers has not come up. AA has only brought up the frequency...

The most notable recent development to me is that AA sent an updated response to someone's DOT complaint (posted on reddit).

AA had previously responded to DOT complaints with little more...

There's a chance the 9 digit / 12 digit thing was unintentional, just two different systems for generating codes. I think that's actually more likely than Citi issuing two types of mailers, one that...

At this point I would guess AA has no idea who used what mailer addressed to who, hence the scorched earth approach and clueless claims about frequency restrictions.

I agree. I think they are uninformed on the mailer bonus eligibility issue, but that serves a more important purpose: it demonstrates that they don’t actually know what they’re doing and that they’re...

I think restitution just lies in the fact that the DOT could theoretically just tell AA "you can't fly any more planes until you provide restitution to these consumers". Basically, they can't force...

I would not think that it was the intention of Congress that airlines can violate federal law without having to pay restitution where applicable. Either the DOT must have power to award damages and...

My understanding is that there is a private right of action when such action is not specifically preempted by, or delegated to, a particular agency.

You can sue based on that statute. If the DOT finds AA in violation, you can sue in AA court for relief in view of the DOT finding (because the DOT can't provide relief themselves).

AA cannot terminate its customers for abuse if in so doing they are engaging in unfair and deceptive practice. Federal law supersedes their alleged unilateral discretion to define abuse.

In my completely biased opinion, I would think that a mailer bearing AAdvantage’s logo, coming from Fort Worth, TX (which many consumers possess at least a vague knowledge is AA’s HQ), means that AA...

Yeah but now I’m worried that AA will just claim that they weren’t responsible for the terms of the mailers... that was Citi. So AA is not responsible for the fulfillment of those offers.

This could be an important point in proving that AA can’t remove themselves from responsibility of fulfilling the offers... who actually created and sent the mailers? Was AA at least aware of them?

You can sue them under suspicion that they colluded with AA. If AA refunds or partially refunds the money/miles to Citi, and Citi doesn’t give us anything, then you gotta go after Citi because AA...

Hmm.. I think Citi may need to be sued in addition to AA. The credit card/bonus contract is between you and Citi, and AA terminated you for “abuse”, which they have the right to do.

So the fact...

AFAIK, and someone can correct me, I believe there is no prohibition on having another Aadvantage account... your work could require you to keep them separate, for example.

Maybe try creating a new Aadvantage account and see if Citi will change the account with which the card is associated?
