Today I received the following targeted offer for my Citi AAdvantage Executive Mastercard. The offer is for 3x AAdvantage miles on eligible purchases up to 2,500 miles, through 6/20/15 from:
- Department Stores
- Grocery Stores
- Gas Stations
3x AAdvantage Miles From Citi Executive Card (Targeted)
These categories are really broad and easy to hit. Too bad they cap the offer at 2,500 miles.
The Fine Print
¹ This offer starts upon enrollment and will end on 06/30/15. AAdvantage® miles are only earned on eligible purchases. Earnings associated with this program will equal 2 AAdvantage® bonus mile(s) per $1 spent on eligible purchases and may overlap with other special offers in which you are currently enrolled. AAdvantage® miles earned with this offer are subject to a maximum of 2,500 AAdvantage® bonus miles. Eligible purchases exclude purchases made at warehouses & discount stores, balance transfers, cash advances, convenience checks, items returned for credit, fees and interest charges. Department stores are classified as merchants that provide a general line of merchandise from departments that usually have separate checkout counters.

Grocery stores, including supermarkets, are classified as merchants that provide a complete line of food merchandise for home consumption. This offer includes convenience stores which are classified as merchants who sell a limited variety of food items. All purchases must be posted during the promotional period. We do not determine how merchants are classified, however, they are generally classified based upon the merchant’s primary line of business. We reserve the right to determine which purchases qualify for this offer.

It’s a shame that the cap on this is up to 2,500 miles. I will likely max this out quickly and then go back to using some other cards with better offers. If there was no cap, I would be putting all my purchases on this card! Did you get this offer and will you be using it?
