Earn 30,000 American Airlines AAdvantage® bonus miles by opening a new Citibank® checking account by April 14, 2019!

Are 30,000 “FREE” AAdvantage Miles Too Good to be True?

There are plenty of offers, promotions and deals out there that promise “FREE” bonus miles. Most are tied to spending minimums on credit cards or with merchants that are part of the promotion. Requiring a minimum spend on a credit card might lead you to charge more than you are comfortable with. After all, paying interest charges is the fastest way to wipe out any “earnings” made off of points and miles.

What interests me about this offer is that while yes, there is a minimum spend of $400 on your debit card, there are no constraints on how or where you spend!

Banks are famous for adding monthly fees and surcharges for different checking account options. But, as long as you are comfortable opening a new bank account (and are careful to select the checking account that is best for you) you’ll be able to score 30,000 bonus AAdvantage miles. There are ways to avoid paying these fees if you have a minimum balance across linked Citibank accounts or if you’re 62 or older.
