Wow – 100,000 Citi Card Comes In Slick Package And High Spending Threshold Presents Challenge

Earlier this week I shared my initial concern about the Citi 100,000 letter that didn’t contain the card. But the card has arrived today and in impressive style.

Citi 100k Card Offer

Last week I applied for the 100,000 bonus mile offer for the Citi Executive card. This week I’m on my way to earning 100,000 AAdvantage miles that I can put to good use like booking 5 First Class seats from the east coast to the west coast in the same plane.

The card comes with some great benefits in addition to the 100,000 miles. But it also comes with a hefty $10,000 spending requirement to earn the bonus. So I plan to get my Bluebird on in the coming weeks along with a few other spending habits.

Even with the high spending requirement, I’ll earn a $200 statement credit, 100,000 miles, gain access to the AAdmirals Clubs, and get free first checked back on American Airlines. I wouldn’t be surprised if that last benefit is increased since the Delta Reserve card also allows for first checked bag for free for cardmembers. It seems the 1 free bag simply doesn’t make sense given the high annual fee.

Bottom Line

The 100,000 credit card offer is the first huge bonus offer of the year. I anticipate there will likely be more, but can’t say for certain.

Regardless, those with the new 100,000 bonus offer card in hand have some work to do. How do you plan to use your new card?

If you are looking for more miles to use on American Airlines or there partners, consider purchasing US Airways miles with the current 100% bonus on purchased or gifted miles. It can be a great deal if you had planned on purchasing a ticket anyway.

  1. Huh? I didn’t get all of that awesome packaging?!! Mine just came in a regular envelope via UPS. I wonder how they choose who gets the special welcome and who gets quicker delivery?

  2. My wife and I both ordered one. Mine came in a regular envelope, hers came with the fancy packaging above.

  3. Interesting that your card came in that “fancy” packaging.

    My card arrived via FedEx. Inside the fedex envelope was a regular white envelope with my card on the usual white paper, no different than others.

  4. “It seems the 1 free bag simply doesn’t make sense given the high annual fee” . . . what doesn’t make sense? The card includes a lounge membership
