What is interesting is that the new Citi Executive card now has fewer special benefits- Admirals Club , 10K EQM after spending 40K, double miles on AA purchases and no Forex fees.

Not worth the extra $350.00. I only have it as it will take me over 2 Mil and give me LT plat.
Yup, at least it should offer million miler miles for spending like it did before 12/11.
Really lame card otherwise.

I wonder if they will make that a permanent feature of the card...although everyone would just cancel it after hitting 1 or 2 mil.
Mine will be cancelled before i have to pay the fee again.

It does if you applied before 12/01.

Although as of now its only through 12/12...im thinking they will make it a permanent feature of the card...if they dont, im sure alot of people will cancel as it doesnt have any major perks

When they called priority access, before this added feature, there was already a stampede of people. They might as well do away with the group numbers as after EXP, PLT, and priority access board, there is probably no one left to board.

I just flew this AM and an agent in LGA read a memo that said this only applies to Citi MC not Visa...Didnt want to fight so I ended up paying for my bags.

When I showed him the website he said he does not care what Citi says, only what AA says.

I wonder if a cancelled card (that's not yet expired) would work?

I received a letter in the mail stating the new benefits for my Citi AA Visa and that the annual fee will go up to $95 next year... But travel must be booked after 4/2/12.

You should easily be able to dispute it

same here - my letter also indicated that the new $95 annual fee was being waived on  existing cards for the first year
