Anniversary Card

Hard to believe but one of the first major co-branded rewards credit cards has hit the 20-year milestone. To celebrate the anniversary of the “Citi AAdvantage” card, Citi and American Airlines is offering a special live auction, 20% discounts on “MileSAAver Awards,” an “AAdvantage” miles giveaway, plus a sweepstakes. Cardholders will be able to bid on special high-value entertainment, sports, leisure, and travel packages starting June 5th. Cardholders will be able to view the first five packages starting June 1st. Some items can be purchased by credit card while other require miles. New postings will then appear every Tuesday thereafter for a total of four weeks. Cardholders will also receive 20% off “MileSAAver” awards including coach, first and business class fares within the continental U.S., Mexico, Caribbean, Hawaii and Canadian destinations for travel between August 22nd and November 16th. Additionally, a sweepstakes will award 20 times bonus miles to one grand prize winner and 500 first prize winners. Every transaction that card holders make during August and September 2007 will count as an entry into the sweepstakes. Plus, from June through September, Citi will be conducting giveaways on the “Private Pass” Web site, in airports and in airlines, in addition to partner discount sand deals.
