7 months to spend $4,000 instead of 4 months if you apply by May 31st!

While you have 4 months to make this minimum spend, Citi has offered a 3 month extension on all bonus period if you apply before May 31st. So if you apply by May 31st, you should have 7 months to spend the $4,000. It’s not advertised anywhere, but Citi had broadly announced that extension. This also applies to any new Citi credit cards you may open before May 31st of this year.

Citi American Airlines Credit Card Bonuses – Once Per 48 Months

You can get this bonus only once every 48 months. The same goes for all of the American Airlines credit cards. For this reason, and because this card doesn’t count against your Chase 5/24 count, you really should be sure to get it exactly once every 48 months. Why wouldn’t you?
