If you’re considering an airline credit card, and if American Airlines flies routes that suit your travel plans, a new offer from Citi could be a top-flight option for you.

Beginning on Oct. 4, 2017, and for a limited time, Citi is doubling the sign-up bonus on the Citi® / AAdvantage® Platinum Select® World Elite™ Mastercard® card and the CitiBusiness® / AAdvantage® Platinum Select® World Mastercard® card for consumers who apply through select sites including NerdWallet.

The Citi® / AAdvantage® Platinum Select® World Elite™ Mastercard® now offers the following sign-up bonus: For a limited time, earn 60,000 American Airlines AAdvantage® bonus miles after making $3,000 in purchases within the first 3 months of account opening*. The card charges an annual fee of $0 for the first year, then $95.

The CitiBusiness® / AAdvantage® Platinum Select® World Mastercard® is also offering twice its previous sign-up bonus: For a limited time, earn 60,000 American Airlines AAdvantage® bonus miles after making $3,000 in purchases within the first 3 months of account opening*. This card also charges an annual fee of $0 for the first year, then $95.

In addition to those extra American Airlines AAdvantage® bonus miles, new cardholders will still have access to perks that come standard on both cards, such as preferred boarding privileges and a free checked bag for you and up to four companions traveling with you on domestic American Airlines flights. Both these cards typically require good credit for new cardholders to be approved.

Both cards offer 2 miles per $1 spent on eligible American Airlines purchases. A key difference is that the business version offers 2 miles for every $1 spent on purchases at telecommunications, car rental merchants and gas stations.
