Best Citi Credit Card Overall (For AA Platinum member)

Best Citi Credit Card Overall (For AA Platinum member)

  1. embtx

    [FONT=Arial]Lucky- I currently have 2 Citi Mastercards that I use routinely- the Citi Thank You Premiere and the Citi Platinum Select World Mastercard. I use the AA card for purchasing travel on AA and the City Thank You Premiere card for just about all other purchases (as points can be transferred to non-AA airlines).

    My company used to pay for annual membership to an airlines’ lounge, so my annual fee for the Admirals’ Club was paid for in the past. That benefit is disappearing in 2017, so I was wondering, would you recommend opening up an account for the:
    [SIZE=4][B][URL=’https://www.citi.com/credit-cards/credit-card-details/citi.action?ID=citi-aadvantage-executive-credit-card&category=view-all-credit-cards&afc=1C2&intc=7~7~67~1~MCT~1~CMSDefaultOffer~4XEIWFB681C2111111W’]Citi® / AAdvantage® Executive World EliteTM MasterCard®[/URL] ?[/B]

    and cancelling the other 2 cards ? Or, opening the Citi AAdvantage Executive World Elite Mastercard and cancelling my current AA Platinum Select Card and keeping the Citibank TY Premiere Card?

    My rationale for the Citi TY Premiere card is that even though the majority of my flights are on AA (trying to get to Lifetime Platinum- I currently have about 1.8 million AA miles) but there are times when I travel on other airlines (Singapore/Delta) due to the fact that I do travel for fun to some areas of the world that are not serviced by AA/OneWorld airlines.

    For 2017, if I want to maintain my Admirals’ Club access I will have to pay for it out of pocket personally, so I have read your posts about the Citi/AAdvantage Executive World Elite MC and the benefit that it contains Admirals’ Club access.

    Also, I will be trying to obtain the new Platinum Pro status in 2017, (I don’t think I will be able to obtain Executive Platinum) so was wondering, which combination of cards will help the most with that goal, as well?

    Thanks much for any assistance with these questions.

    hi [USER=2585]@embtx[/USER], welcome. If you value AA club membership I think the Exec card is a no brainer since it offers you membership plus the 10,000 EQM once you spend $40,000 on the card in a year which should help you in your status goals. I’d consider keeping the Citi Premier since it has good complementary categories and also covers gas, dining, and entertainment. Citi will often offer you fee waiver or bonus points challenges if you call around the time your annual fee posts.
