As I wrote about yesterday, at the moment we’re seeing some great welcome bonuses on Citi AAdvantage Cards. By applying for two cards with the annual fees waived for the first 12 months, you can earn 130,000 AAdvantage bonus miles (which I personally value at $1,690):

— The Citi® / AAdvantage® Platinum Select® World Elite™ Mastercard® is offering a sign-up bonus of 60,000 AAdvantage miles after making $3,000 of purchases within the first three months; $99 annual fee, waived for the first 12 months
— The CitiBusiness® / AAdvantage® Platinum Select® World Mastercard® is offering a sign-up bonus of 70,000 AAdvantage miles after making $4,000 of purchases within the first four months; $95 annual fee, waived for the first 12 months

Citi has what’s known as the “24 month rule,” and I wanted to clarify exactly how that worked in the context of these bonuses, as it’s a point that confused many.
