Two AA FF accounts when applying for AA Exec cc with existing AA Advantage card?
I have just called Citicard’s customer service (well, actually chatted with them online – have the chat log). Asked them what happens if I apply for a AA Executive CC, will I be earning miles for my existing AA FF account (which is already linked to my current AA Advantage Platinum Select card). The agent said that with the new card I would need to get a new “member ID”, (which according to him means a new AA account), and then I would need to ask AA to link those. Do you know whether this info is correct?
I wanted to know this because with my current AA Platinum Select card I would get back 10% of redeemed miles (yearly max of 10k miles), while there is no such benefit with the Executive cc. I do not want to get the new card if I risk losing the 10% mile-back benefit.
Also, the bonus is 50k AA miles, but I seem to remember that last year it was 75k. Do I remember correctly?
Thank you as always for your help.
[USER=1592]@Daniel B[/USER] – you do NOT need to get a new AA frequent flyer number. You can hold both cards at the same time so you can enjoy the AAdmiral’s Club benefit from the Exec card and the 10% back from the Platinum card at the same time.
At one time I had 2 of the Exec cards as well as the Platinum card (which I’ve had for 20+ years) and all the miles went to my one FF account.
That’s great! Thank you for the clarification.
