New Benefits for Citi AAdvantage Cards
Citi has added new benefits effective Nov. 23, 2014 to AAdvantage co-branded credit cards.
According to an email from Citi to AAdvantage cardholders, new benefits will include access to trip delay protection, baggage delay protection, medical evacuation, improved worldwide auto insurance protection, improved trip interruption and cancellation insurance, return protection (covering most items when a merchant will not accept a return within 90 days), missed event ticket protection (if you have to miss an event due to weather or lost tickets) and improved damage and theft protection.
Improvements to worldwide auto insurance protection include covering vehicles with a value up to $100,000. Current program terms exclude cars with a value over $50,000.
Another interesting addition is the trip delay protection, which according to the terms and conditions covers you “If a trip you paid for in full with your Citi card is delayed for at least three hours, we may reimburse you for expenses you incur because of the delay. You’re covered for up to $500 per trip.” The benefit covers reasonable expenses for hotel accommodations, ground transportation, meals and necessities for carrying out your work or supplies like toiletries. The program does not cover you if you booked your trip by redeeming AAdvantage miles.
