Every now and then I look forward to receiving junk mail – especially if there’s free points and miles involved. Earlier this week I received a special invitation via mail to register my Citi AAdvantage Visa for a great targeted promotion. My promotion was for 10x American Airlines miles on eligible Amazon.com purchases and 3x AAdvantage miles on eligible holiday shopping purchases through December 31, 2012. The promotion is capped at 2,500 bonus miles.
While I don’t have an immediate need for anything at Amazon.com at the moment, the T+C states, “the Amazon.com offer is valid for purchases billed as Amazon.com transactions”. Without giving too much away, my first thought was to check to see if Amazon Payments billed as Amazon.com, but it does not; however, I do believe that the purchase of Amazon.com giftcards would count towards the bonus, so that’s the route I’ll be going with this. Does anyone have any previous experience with getting the 10x points to post from last quarter’s promotion?
If you’re a Citi AA cardholder, be on the lookout for your offer if you’ve be targeted. Some people have received their offer via email and others via mail. Which offer did you receive and how do you plan on taking advantage of it?
