Citi AAdvantage Drops International Discounted Awards
||:: Late-Breaking News
(Posted: Jan 19, 2009)
Many Citi AAdvantage cardholders take advantage of the reduced flight awards offered each quarter to members.
In the past, members were able to find good deals to destinations in the U.S., Canada, the Caribbean, Mexico, Central and South America, Europe and Asia. Granted, selection was limited to specific dates and cities, but many members were willing to travel at off-peak times to save a few thousand miles.
Now, members will only find domestic destinations at reduced rates. Citi Platinum Select MasterCard and Citi Select American Express cardmembers can redeem coach class awards for 17,500 miles and first/business class awards for 42,500 miles. Citi Gold MasterCard and Citi American Express cardmembers will find coach class awards for 20,000 miles and first class awards for 45,000 miles. There are a total of 49 discounted destinations across the United States, including Monterey and Fresno, Calif.; Houston, Tex.; Albuquerque, NM.; Key West, Fla. and Madison, Wis. The discounted awards are valid for travel between now and March 31, 2009.
