Prior to last December, the last time I successfully received a sign-up bonus for a Citibank AAdvantage personal card was February 2010, about 34 months ago before my eventual approval! I must have been on Citi’s unofficial deny list, as FlyerTalk and MilePoint members generally report receiving approval 18-20 months after their last successful application. I applied at the 20 month mark with no luck and then again at the 26 month mark, also with no success and the dreaded step 3 application acknowledgment page. My approval was based on one of the old links without an official page, but a legit link that’s been up for several weeks is still working. It’s different than the one I posted three weeks ago that has since ended. You’ll earn 50K points after spending $3,000 within 3 months. Check out the link directly from Citibank here. Unfortunately, the two browser trick has officially died, however you can still earn 50K per card type (spaced out within the guidelines above) and another 50K for the business edition.
PS -anyone else missing these churnable offers???
