The Citi Platinum Select AAdvantage World Mastercard is the middle tier of Citi 's American Airlines travel credit cards. These credit cards are designed specifically to provide benefits for flying on American Airlines, and earn points towards booking American Airlines flights.
As a travel credit card, the Citi Platinum Select AAdvantage World Mastercard provides 30,000 bonus miles for $1,000 in purchases in the first three months, in addition to priority boarding on American Airlines, $100 flight discounts, and 10% of your AAdvantage miles back. In the grand scheme of travel credit cards, this is a very strong performer - its primary competitors being the likes for the American Express Delta SkyMiles credit card. When looking at these other mid-tier credit score types of cards, the 30,000 mile bonus and the $100 savings on flights are great - but the point accrual leaves something to be desired in that you only earn 22 American Airlines AAdvantage miles for every $1 spent. This is restrictive - these miles only count towards American Airlines and you only get two per dollar, many travel cards will provide that same percentage cash back with unlimited redeemability.
That being said, there are no blackout dates, no expirations, and all of the perks one would expect with a Citi Travel card, including travel accident insurance, auto rental insurance, and an extended warranty. This card makes sense for people who fly on American Airlines regularly, but with the $95.00 fee, if you don't see yourself booking a significant number of flights through American any time soon this might not be the best option for you.
