To be clear up front, this is certainly a targeted offer, but I thought it was worth discussing here. I received both a mailer and an email for it on the same day (Wednesday) for 3X bonus miles for purchases made with my Citi AAdvantage Executive card.

“Online purchases” is a pretty broad category. I can buy just about anything online, and frequently do. Of course, online purchases of AA tickets are excluded. On the other hand, I don’t see anything in the terms and conditions that exclude Amazon, where I frequently shop. I just might take advantage (no pun intended) of this, even if it is capped at 2,500 miles. Did you receive an offer for your Citi AAdvantage card? What was it? Share in the comments, including the type of card you have and the offer.
