I have to disagree here. I don't think we've ever seen a public 100k signup bonus on the AA cards, or at least not anytime recently. The offer also gives a $200 statement credit, effectively bringing the AF down to $250. Despite what has happened with AA over the past few days, it's still a very good deal.

I had been on the look out for 100,000 airline offers for the past year for airlines we use and this has been the best so far for AA, especially with the $200 credit. The highest before was 75K without $200 credit. However, I did notice that DH just recently got a new AA targeted offer for the 100,000 w/ $200 credit that expires on May 31.

 

If you frequent the FT forum, you can see how so many churners and regular folks are jumping on this offer because it's such a rarity and good deal. In fact quite a few are taking advantage of Citi's generous sign up policy and opening 2 or 3 of these cards.


I just dont see how this is such a wonderful deal after the latest deval. I promise I wont point it out anymore, but American really made Uniteds deval look like a small trimming. 


I don't think the deval was that bad, but it was moreso about how it was delivered. The loss of international gateway stopovers and explorer awards definitely hurts, but it could have been much worse. I'm still not convinced that they're finished yet either, and I expect a tweaking of the OW partner chart will be next. They're doing this simply because they can.

 

The biggest issue IMO is that it shook something that AA loyalists had taken for granted for years, and made them question the integrity of both their preferred program and those who run it.

Yes, there are a lot of people very upset by the deval. I think it's a good deal for me because my attitude is that these points are nice bonuses. I don't depend on these points and I don't MS so it's little extra to have on hand. But if I'm going through the trouble to open up another credit card, then I want it to be the best deal out there.

I have serious heartburn with the tiers but calling them AAnytime rewards. Its insulting.

Sorry to hijack your thread. This offer has been around awhile, It appears the March 31 expiration date was just a rumor :smileyhappy:

+1. I couldn't have said it better myself. If the offer isn't fantastic (100k), I won't bother opening a new card.

I think everyone was expecting it, and the only questions were when and how bad was it going to be.

 

It's hard to imagine that AA wouldn't deval given that both of their competitors already did.
