It's the best AA miles return for non bonus spend, I don't see what the big deal is, if you want the miles, do it, if not, don't.
I just found it weird to offer 2,500 for $3,000 spending.

Let me spell it out:

Point is that it ain't free. Opportunity cost is 3k SPG, 4.5k UR/MR (via FU/Amex EDP), or $60 (via Citi 2x cash).

You gotta ask yourself if 5.5k AA > max(3k SPG, 4.5k UR, 4.5k MR, $60).

Random,
Got an email from Citi that I'm eligible to add AU on my Citi AA card and will receive 2,500 miles, hold it, after spending "$3,000"
can someone explain me this,

I read this email 5 times thinking maybe it said 25,000 miles, but no 2,500.

Why would anyone in the world take this offer.
I got same offer but on the business version and the spend was only 2500
Comes out to 2ppd (or 3ppd on bonus categories)

You're looking at it wrong. My point was that if you want a 5k top up to your AA account, this is the best way to do it, not that you couldn't get a better return on your spending on a different card.

If that's the case then that increases the likelihood that 5.5k AA > max(3k SPG, 4.5k UR, 4.5k MR, $60).

It's all about the (highly subjective) relative values of various currencies.
