I had hoped this would be the result, especially based on some of the positive Flyertalk comments, but I’m now happy to officially report that 200,000 AAdvantage miles have found their way to my account! I used all the same details for both applications EXCEPT the email address which was unique for each. Others recommend using different AAdvantage accounts as well to be safe. Note that I also followed Citi’s unofficial app rules as stated over at Flyertalk “1 Citi app or card of any kind per 8 days and 2 Citi cards or apps of any kind per 65 days. It is always advisable to wait 65 days from any type of Citi denial before applying for another Citi card.”
Family members attending college at schools that allow credit card payments is always a a good thing…especially when they are willing to reimburse you via check 😉 !
Of course, I guess this isn’t all that special as other bloggers have reported getting 3 and 4 card bonuses successfully. I’m pretty happy with my 200K AA miles though and there’s no way I could have hit the spend a third time.
Anyone else have a similar experience? Unfortunately, the current offer has been reduced to 50K.
