Citi is interesting, sometimes they will match spend offers and other times they say they can’t do it. My neighbor received the offer below earlier this week for 1,000 AAdvantage bonus miles for every $1K spent each month for 3 months. Not the best of offers, essentially double miles on the first $1K spent.
However, I wanted to use this on categories that my other cards don’t offer bonuses on and so I chatted online with Citi. They couldn’t help and said I should call customer service instead. I did and struck out on my first request, but the second agent was able to get it assigned to my account. They couldn’t extend the validity though as apparently this began in January, so I’ll have it for the rest of this month and then next.
I guess the lesson here is if you don’t get the answer you like, call back again! HUACA works 🙂
