Citi Executive AA 100,000 Miles Posted

As I posted about here and here, I applied for the 100,000 mile Citi Executive World Elite MasterCard offer in late January.  Well a couple of months later, the 100,000 total bonus miles have posted to my AA account.  Since I initially applied for the offer when it was just 75,000 miles (which Citi later adjusted to 100,000) the miles posted in two separate transactions.

I should note that the $200 statement credit and the $450 annual fee have both posted to my account.   So I did net 107,500 miles (including the $7,500 in spend) for $250.  Keep in mind that this card offers a 10% rebate on AA awards per year up to 10,000 miles.  A roundtrip first class flight to Asia is 135,000 miles.  Subtract the 10,000 mile rebate and that's 125,000 miles.  So this offer will get you pretty darn close to the amount of miles required to redeem for that ticket that retails for $5,000 - 10,000!

This is one of the best credit card offers in market today and I'm glad that I was able to take advantage of it.  There are rumors that the offer will be pulled by the end of March so if you're interested in taking advantage of this offer, now would be the time!
