Which AA credit cards to cancel and which to pick up?
Ben, I plan to make an award booking on Cathay using my AA miles for a trip next May. I currently have the Citi World Elite Mastercard that I want to cancel because my annual fee is due soon. I also have the Citi Executive Card that I picked up last year that’s due in July. I want to keep one AA card in my portfolio so that I can get the 10% rebate from my award booking. If i end up cancelling both cards this year, is there another AA card I can pick up this year so that I have an AA card when I take my trip next year? As far as I understand, one must possess an AA card during the trip and not just when the booking is made, correct?
@ Luis — In my experience the 10% rebate posts within a few weeks of when the booking is made, so I believe you should be fine as long as you have it when the refund posts, which should be a few weeks after booking.
