Apparel purchases are transactions made at stand-alone merchants that sell clothing, furnishings and accessories geared toward a specific audience. Citi does not determine whether merchants appropriately identify the purchases (including online, catalog, mail order and telephone purchases), but Citi does reserve the right to determine which purchases qualify for this offer. Bonus miles awarded for each offer are subject to a maximum of 2,500 additional miles.

Bottom Line

We’re glad to see more promotion spending offers for the Citi AAdvantage card. We normally use our Chase Freedom card for their great promotional spending offers, and now we’ll add our Citi AAdvantage card into the mix for this offer. Hat Tip Hansgolden

  1. What qualifies as “eligible Amazon.com purchases”? Anything purchased from Amazon, or only items in certain categories?

  2. It specifically says: “The Amazon.com offer is valid for purchases billed as Amazon.com transactions.” That seems rather cut and dry to me.

    So total is 2,500 per offer per card so 5,000 points total per card?

    Spending $250 at Amazon would be my pleasure!

  3. When I received the email I noticed it is written as 2,500 bonus miles. And states, “earn 9 bonus miles/$.” Since going through the portal and using any card normally gets you 1 mile/$, to me that means spend $277.78 and earn an additional 2,500 miles with a citi AA card, for a total of 2,778 AA miles. What do others think?

  4. Is this promotion through the American Advantage shopping portal, or is it independent of that? I don’t see Amazon listed on the shopping portal. And, Citi itself knew nothing about the promotion. Thanks for any help.

  5. This may be targeted.. I did not receive email, whereas did receive email for similar CitiAA offers ending 9/30/12.

    I interpret same as Ken except it’s the use of the Citi AA card at point of sale that generates the (9x) bonus points eligibility rather than the portal thru which Amazon.com is accessed.

    Another note: Similar recent Citi AA promotion had the T&C provision “offer valid 4 days from enrollment” which also was difficult to interpret. Not sure that applies here.

  6. Sent a SM to CITI. I have AAdvantage Executive and the had downgraded my AAdvantage Platinum earlier this year to Bronze. They said that the offer was not available for either of these card 🙁

  7. Sent an SM to Citi as well, got this response: “This is not a Citibank offer, please contact Amazon.com for more information.” ???

  8. I received the same SM response as David–“This is not a Citi offer, please contact Amazon.com for more information.”

  9. Okay. I see that there is no need for a shopping portal. Just shop on amazon.com for qualified purchases and use the targeted AA card for 9 bonus miles on top of usual 1mile/$ spend.
    I find it interesting that the targeted email comes from citicard and that some people have had a response, “this is not a citibank offer, please contact amazon.” but in the email’s terms and conditions it states: Citibank, N.A. will be solely responsible for all obligations in connection with the offers described herein.

  10. Just sent an email to Citi CS and they responded with the same thing as David/Spencer: “This is not a Citibank offer, please contact Amazon.”

    I replied back that this was definitely a Citi offer and re-requested the offer. We’ll see…

  11. Just got me 2nd response:

    “We apologize that our previous message contained incorrect information. The Citi AAdvantage offer is only available by solicitation. We are unable to send out specific offers upon request.

    We regret any inconvenience this has caused. We appreciate the opportunity to serve you.”

  12. I actually got a letter in the mail regarding this offer today, so check your mail if you have an AA card.

  13. Spoke with a Citi rep over the phone, and after conferring with her supervisor, she said the offer is only available to personal cardholders.

  14. I got the same offer in the mail – only it’s for the Citi Thank You card instead of AA. 10X for Amazon and 5X for back to school (department store, electronics, office supply, apparel). You have to call or go online to enroll though.

  15. I have the Citi Platinum Select AA Signature Visa. Sent a secure message and got the promotion applied. Here is Citi’s response:

    “We appreciate the opportunity to assist you.

    You will earn an additional nine miles per dollar on purchases at Amazon.com until 09/30/2012 up to a cap of 2,500 bonus miles. You will also earn an additional two miles per dollar on purchases at department stores, electronics stores, office supply stores and apparel stores until 09/30/2012 up to a cap of 2,500 bonus miles.

    We have enrolled you in this offer today.”

  16. I also sent a secure message and received the same response as Henry82. I assumed I was enrolled, but I then I received this letter in the mail:

    We are contacting you regarding your Citi Select/AAdvantage account.

    From time to time Citi creates special offers but at this time you were not selected for this specific offer. You may be selected for another offer in the future if one becomes available. We apologize if you were given incorrect information previously. As a courtesy, we have added 2,500 miles to your account.
