did you have other AA cards in the past? if not- which would make it seem that the denial is credit related- it's probably a good idea to check your report for mistakes/fraud anyway (and with the denial you are entitled to the report)

I have seen reports of people calling in and getting the decision reversed. I plan to call myself and try and get at least one reversed. Ill report back how that goes.

Update: I tried a few times. No go on getting the decision reversed.

On a separate note, it seems the Business cards take quite a while to process...has anyone else experienced that? Its been pending since Friday...

Does anyone know if Citi counts sending money through paypal as a purchase? If so, that would be a pretty cheap way to spend the required amount of money.

Im not sure what you mean. Although there is a fee for withdrawing money, it is still quite a cheap way to get to the required spending threshold (now that there is no more Us Mint)

They charge roughly 4%. What happened to the mint?

Weird data point;
A friend of mine has an active Citi AA card for the last few years and applied for the 75K promo and got the message that he will receive a letter in the next few days with their decision. He just assumed that like everyone else he was probably denied because he is not a "new cardholder".
Today he got a congradulations email that he was approved for the card- and the kicker is that they said he already had the maximum amount of credit with them so they were moving a few thousand $ from his current active (Citi AA) card to this new card! So it is not even like his other card was missed by their system they actually acknowledge the card.
Is it maybe because his Citi AA is now a bronze card (lowered from regular card a few years ago)?

@ Rebzelik: There still is the US Mint but only for $1000 every 10 days

If multiple people apply for the CC using the same AAvantage number, would that go through?

I believe its 2.9%.  For $750 Dollars it comes out to about 22 dollars. Seems like a pretty good price to me for the bonus miles. Anyway I just verified that it works.
