First off, let me say I get nothing from posting this.
That said, there’s a fantastic offer out there for the Citi American Airlines Elite Mastercard.
In short, charge $10,000 in 3 months and get 100,000 miles.
$450 annual fee
($200) statement credit on first $200 in charges a year
($1500) 100,000 miles at 1.5 cents per mile
($150) value of 10,000 miles you’ll earn charging that $10,000 to meet minimum spend at 1.5 cents/mile
So, this is a win of $1400 in miles minus whatever it costs you to earn that $10,000 in spend. Even if you charge your taxes at a 1.92% fee with one of the payment providers that’s only $192….meaning you still come out over $1200 ahead.
Highly recommend jumping on this one! Good luck to all, and be sure to let me know your success stories. I know where I’m posting my Q2 taxes!
EDIT: Forgot to mention the real values of this card beyond this deal….2 miles per dollar spend on AA purchases, AND includes AA lounge access regardless of which airline you’re flying. Nice if you’re losing access when they cease to partner with AmEx.
