Citibank AAdvantage MasterCard Question

Sat Mar 04, 2006 1:12 am

Quick question regarding the AAdvantage MasterCard for those with this card...

I just got this card and I was wondering how much time does it usually take from date of purchase for the miles to get posted in your AAdvantage account.

Thanks.

At the end of the month, the miles are posted.

I think they do the monthly processing on the 6th of each month, and within a day or two the miles show up on aa.com.

Also, that card has partnerships with certain vendors where you can five, ten or sometimes even 20 miles per dollar spent. But check into that a little further. You may have to sign up for that before you can accrue the extra miles...

By the way, if:
  • You do not already have one.
  • You fly OneWorld regularly.
  • You can cycle a large amount of cash through the card (even if you pay it off right away

Then I highly recommend this card. In three years, I have already earned three international coach flights with it. I have only used one so far, but the first one saved me $2200 going from ORD to DUR.

The initial free miles you receive will take anywhere from 6-8 weeks to be posted to your account. Often times you will need to call them and have the accounts merged with you exsisting AA Advantage number.

It's sorta of a racket how they do this promotion, get your miles though!

I don't get what you're talking about here at all. Did you create a second AAdvantage account when getting the card? I provided my existing number when I applied for the card, and didn't have to do any special manipulation to move the miles over.

Tell me more about this... What kind of vendors? Where do I sign up?

It's mostly restaurants. You sign on to this program:

http://aa.rewardsnetwork.com/

Once you do, you will be able to access a list of restaurants in your area that offer mile specials when you use your cards. You have to pay close attention, though, because some of the restaurants have certain days blacked out (usually weekends, when you would be most likely to use the card). Hope this helps...
