American Airlines (AA) miles can be used for redeeming not only AA flights, but also Oneworld partner flights. The 10% miles back on award tickets is a nice perk.  

Restrictions when you apply: 

1. You can only apply for one Citi card every eight days, and can apply for no more than two Citi cards every 65 days. Also, you can only apply for one Citi Business card every 95 days. Due to these restrictions, it is not possible to have multiple applications on the same day to combine credit inquiries (hard-pull). 

2. You are not eligible to receive the sign-up bonus if you had received sign-up bonus reward points/miles from the same series in the past 24 months. 

3. If your online application is not instantly approved, you may call the reconsider line 1-800-695-5171 to request for reconsideration. 


Some of the best perks of the Citi AAdvantage Platinum Select card is the 10% miles back on award tickets, preferred boarding on domestic flights, and one free checked bag for both the card member and companions traveling on the same reservation of domestic flights. The card comes with a $95 annual fee after the first 12 months, so you might need to do some calculation and see if it’s worth for you. We have witnessed a hike in the miles needed to redeem for business/first class tickets between Asia and North America in early 2016, but using AA miles for premium cabin on Oneworld partner flights can still be a good deal.
