Unintentional CitiBusiness AA card

Somewhat misleading subject but I was minding my own business after getting the Marriott Premier card last week and I received a targeted mailing from Citi for the business AA card with 60K bonus. No thanks. Wait 60K? Nope, I don't fly AA often. FIne. I applied late last night and got the pending screen with a call in number to verify some info. Made the call this morning and was approved. They just reviewed all the info on my application, nothing additional. $16,800 limit and the offer is for $3K spend in 3 months.

I don't think I'd have the willpower to pass up that offer either.

"Resistance is futile" comes to mind.

Re: Unintentional CitiBusiness AA card

I guess it is not too bad if it is really just the CitiBusiness card since that only has an annual fee of $95.  I have never seen a 60k AA miles signup bonus on anything other than the CitiExecutive card though, which comes with a hefty $450 annual fee.

 

What does the business card give you that the personal Citi/AA card you already have does not provide you with? Or did you sign up just for the extra miles?

Just the miles. Fee waved for first year. Collecting for eventual flights for personal travel.
