Verify that the following language does not appear on the offer or in the terms first, otherwise you are ineligible for a new Citi AA card: "American Airlines AAdvantage bonus miles are not available if you have had any Citi / AAdvantage® card (other than a CitiBusiness / AAdvantage® card) opened or closed in the past 24 months." Do the same on the application page itself. If that verbiage is not present, you should be okay to apply and receive the bonus.
I didn't see that on the invite or webpage. I was instantly approved. Happy as often 50k is the most you can get with this card.
You can get an extra 10k if you send them a secure message saying you saw a 60k offer and would like to be matched. No need to give specifics, they'll just do it no questions asked.
On one of the blog I saw a comment by a guy who asked for an extra 10k. The Citi CSR checked his account, saw that the guy had had this bonus recently and canceled it all together.
Well, my wife and I have each had this bonus three times now, and I've got the 10k bonus twice on each of our accounts in the last month. It seems everyone is doing it now, it's even made it to Reddit. I get the same canned response each time, so I'd say they just had bad luck.
