Thinking about getting the Citi AAdvantage Platinum Select card for the 50k bonus and group 1 boarding as I build status. Worth it?

There's an AA Platinum Challenge right now. 12.5k miles within 90 days + $200 fee

If you earned status level during the year, you'll keep it for 2017. Make sense?

But if you only fly the 12.5k and that's it, you'll only keep it till feb

Card is great for bonus miles. Citi upgrades it and you can reapply for another bonus in a few months. Shhh

I have it and it's all I use. Love it. Have status but love getting extra miles w/ all my friv spending.

@OP It upgrades from World MasterCard to World Elite MasterCard. Per the rules, a new card is eligible for the bonus if the cardholder has not opened or closed the card in the past 18 months. That clock resets to 0 after an upgrade. (And they waive the annual fee if you call and ask, so you can keep rotating indefinitely.)

OP I got offer for 60. Did it, got the miles and ✌🏻️ if you have good credit y not

Also, do you need to purchase the ticket with the card or can you just input your ff #?

Why don't you just do a status challenge or something like that?

No

That will give you status till February 2017? How does it work with finishing the challenge the first half/second half of the year?

Upgrades it to what? And how often can you get another bonus?

My advice is always to get the CC with an airline you won't make status on.

^^ EY how do I upgrade my AA card?!?

@EY2 It should happen automatically after a few months. Maybe you have to keep using it regularly, I'm not really sure. You can try calling and ask. Not unreasonable to try to get the World Elite benefits.

Yeah I've had it for almost 3 years and it's the only card I use 😔 I want an upgrade!!! I'll call tomorrow 😎

If you've had it for three years, you can apply for another one regardless and get the bonus again

^^ not to sound like a dummy but that would add another card to my wallet, right? Not just transforming my current card?

@EY2 Correct

I'm kicking myself--I've got a number of side gigs, one in particular that I've been running since 2016. I'm not a marketing guy, so I hired a small box ad firm to run my marketing for about 1.5 years and had a -3x marketing ROI during that timeframe, just dumping money down the drain.

Fired them in the spring and started marketing it myself and have been seeing a so far scalable ~2-2.5x marketing ROI since I started experimenting with my marketing budget in June.
