Title: Fly AA a bunch, best credit card?
Post by: MacDan on September 07, 2013, 10:24:57 PM
I fly AA about 12-15 times a year. What is the best credit card in order to get the various benefits with them (baggage, miles, etc). Is the CitiBank card the only option or are there others?

You can apply for the Amex SPG card and get a bunch SPG points which transfers to AA 20:25.

Already got that and use it, but I am concerned about the huge amount of baggage fees I am paying (I always check a bag due to the nature and length of my stay). I understand that with a AA-branded CC I may be able to avoid such fees. I am looking for solicitations as to which card is the best (if Citi is not the only option).

Citi is the only option for that.
Happy travels!

Before you get the citi card see if they have any bonus mileage deals. I originally got 75,000 per card for 4 cards and went to Israel with my wife business. It was a while ago, but maybe they have something now too.

I think he means to earn miles with the credit card and signup bonuses
