aa free bag card question
« on: January 16, 2013, 09:08:48 PM »
so last week i got a new aa gold visa card. on the pamphlet it mentioned about the free bag offer. when i called citi, they said that the card does not come with the offer, but since the invitation mentioned the free bag, they will dispute it.

the main problem: i want to book a flight via aa on orbitz from jfk to lax. if my card does not have the free bag, can i use someone else's skymiles number (who has a platinum card) and get the free bag? how does this exactly work, i'm a bit confused.

thanks

If you have the citi AA card you do get a free bag. I am not sure what rep is talking about

Your card does NOT come with a free bag, only the platinum lever cards $85 yearly fee (waived first year) comes with a free checked bag, the gold level $50 yearly fee (waived first year) does not have that benefit.

Do you still have the pamphlet?
Other wise I'm not sure how you will win the dispute.

A huge YMMV but ask your friend to make you an additional user for his platinum card, and show it at check in..

Unless you have the same name, I doubt you can use their AA Advantage number...
Personally If you dont have the card, I dont think it makes a difference what card you book it on.
Good luck with the dispute, there are people out there that had platinum cards but booked with Avios so their AA adantage number wasnt there at time of reservation and lost the dispute, even showing the check in agent didnt help..

Wow!
How could you guys figure out when your last night will be??
Either way, I don't believe its makes a difference for AA baggage.
Love me or hate me. I still love you.

another quick question- if someone has an aa advantage number, signs up for a new card, does not include their advantage number, will their number stay the same or will it change?

You can fill in your current Aadvantage number.  It will not effect the signup bonus.
