Citibank is offering up to 30,000 bonus American Airlines AAdvantage® miles when you open one of their checking accounts by October 31, 2012.

The deal

Anyone who is interested in taking advantage of this deal must either open a new Citibank checking account online, by phone or at a branch. The promotional code CY4Y must be mentioned upon account opening.

Within 60 days, you must set up direct deposit to the checking account for two consecutive months and spend a minimum amount with your Citibank debit card (the amount varies depending on the checking account) in order to earn the bonus AAdvantage®miles. The amount of bonus miles earned also depends on the checking account opened.

  • Citigold Account earns 30,000 AAdvantage® bonus miles, requires $750 in debit card purchases
  • Citibank Account earns 15,000 AAdvantage® bonus miles, requires $375 in debit card purchases
  • Basic Banking Account earns 5,000 AAdvantage® bonus miles, requires $125 in debit card purchases

The bonus miles will be posted within 90 days to your American Airlines AAdvantage® account — from the end of the month in which the requirements are fulfilled.

The accounts

The Citigold, Citibank Account and Basic Checking accounts have monthly fees of $30, $20 and $10, respectively. Each of these monthly fees can be waived if certain requirements (differs by account) are met.

    monthly fee $30X12 months =360 actually they are selling 30,000 miles with 50% discount rate $720  should be
    the regular fee for these miles. These are rought calculations so it is new trick with different packaging. Banks play these games all these years they are out there to back stab you with all kinds of invisible fees. I don’t trust any of them.
