Look what I found!
This isn’t just another reminder about how double dipping the American Airline cards is still one of the best deals in the credit card game. This is also an alert that there is a 50,000 mile Business MasterCard version of the American Airlines Citi card. Why is this a big deal? The best one I heard of was 40,000, but doing some searching I found a 50,000 card!
Who cares? Let me back up.
I’ve written a lot about double dipping the American Airlines personal cards. The card comes in two version, Visa and Amex, but you’re only meant to get one. However, if you apply for the both cards at the same time, in two different browsers (like Firefox and Chrome), you can get approved for both… and when I first did this, it was on one credit pull!
You can essentially do the same with the business cards. One Visa and one MasterCard! However, most reports that I hear are that you can only do one business app in a day with Citi and to just wait at least 95 days between both business cards (some say 120 days). This could net over 200,000 AAdvantage miles and $450 towards American Airlines!
Here’s the landing page for the MasterCard version, and here’s the link to the application.
Also here is the landing page for the Business Visa (and both personals) for 50,000 miles, $150 credit statement, two lounge passes and a spend requirement of only $3,000 in 4 months. And here’s the app for the Biz Visa.
These are the best offers that I’ve seen in a long time. These applications keep getting taken down but… here it is. (And note that there is a 40k personal MasterCard too (there are reports that you can apply for this 18 months after the personal cards, but haven’t done this personally)).
Also, a little secret: my business card just has my name on it twice – once as the name of the user and once as the business name. And my application just had my ssn as my ssn and business number (I’m a sole proprietorship :-p).
