If one of your credit cards is the American Airlines Citi Bank credit card, you may be able to earn a 50% bonus on anything you purchase with this card thru June 31, 2012.
At Bestfares.com, we received a special invite through snail mail; Citi Bank also sent the same notice via email.
This offer is by invite only, but you may have received it without even noticing. The title of the email we received from Citi Bank was: Respond By 11/25/11 To Earn More American Airlines AAdvantage Miles Faster. So go back through your old emails and see if you can find it
If you are invited to partake in this special double miles event, you may want to register your cards and start shopping now for the Christmas shopping season. Imagine getting 50% more miles on everything you buy between now and January 31, 2012.
Insider tip: We think online shopping is great skip the crowds and mall parking and jump online to https://www.aadvantageeshopping.com/welcome.aspx this is American Airlines eshopping page. Not only will you get your .05 additional AAdvantage miles for every $1 you spend, but when you shop on this site you can earn up to 15 times more miles for every dollar you spend.
For example, once you log in using your AAdvantage # you can shop at almost any retail online store from JC Penney, Best Buy, Nordstrom and for every $1 you spend online buying gifts you will earn 3, 5, 7, 15 or more miles for every $1 spend, depending on which retail store you choose. Then on top of that you will get 50% more miles for each dollar you spend with this special by invitation only offer.
Around the holidays we see stores like Harry and David's, 1-800-flowers, and Pro-flowers will offer usually 15, 20 or 30 miles for every $1 spent, so don't forget to send a small gift basket to all your friends!
This is a fantastic offer, so check your email and mailbox to see if you were invited. It's always nice to get 50% more of something for really doing nothing!
