Canceling AA Citi Card and Losing points?
Do I lose my points if I cancelled my AA (Advantage Ameriacn) Citi Card? I was told that I have 60 days to use the points? I never had a problem losing points when canceling my card. I assume that the points are already transfer to the AA portal. How does Citibank have access to my AA points?
No, they just say that. The reps are ill-informed. You’re good as long as you have activity within 18 months!
Tiffany is right. Once those earned points are transferred to your AA account, they cannot take it back, they remain on your AA FF account. Of course you have to watch for that 18 months where you have to have some activity. You can always set up a AAdvantage Dining profile, get a sandwich at a participating restaurant for a few $, and voila, a week later those points are deposited on your AA account, and the expiration of points is extended by another 18 months. Or buy something through the AAdvantage Shopping portal.
