Citi AAdvantage Executive 75,000-Point Bonus
Then of course, there is this:
American Airlines AAdvantage® bonus miles not available if you have had a Citi®/AAdvantage® Executive World EliteTM MasterCard® opened or closed in the past 18 months.
Not such good news. On the other hand, if you haven’t had this particular Executive card within the last 18 months, it seems you’re good to go.
Aside from the bonus, the card gives you and your family access to Admiral Clubs, one Global Entry or TSE PRE credit and a free checked bag. Go to the link above to see all the benefits.
I’ve had a few of AA Executive cards since last August, so I’ll have to sit this one out. Bummer!
If you can meet the spend quickly and close the card within 30 days (some FT-ers suggest 37 days) from posting, you will get the annual fee back. Check this thread when in doubt.
AMEX Massacre Survivor
All AMEX Delta 50-60K offers are now dead, dead, dead. Shot, burned, electrocuted! But this one has miraculously survived and been extended until September 29th. Which is nice, because business AMEX cards do not have these fatal limitations of once-in-a-lifetime bonus. As long as you haven’t had a business AMEX card for the last 12 months, you’re good to go. So yes, there is a silver lining. I’m sure I don’t need to remind anyone that you don’t have to have an “official” business in order to qualify for a business credit card. Treat AMEX business cards as a lifeline to keep you afloat.
UPDATE: Appears targeted—works for me, but not other family members with AMEX accounts
