    I did the two browser trick back in July and Got the Citi AA MasterCard and Amex for 40,000 miles each. I just received an email (I tried to copy and past it but MP said I had too many images so here is the text version):

    I'm assuming I got this email based off of the Mastercard account. But there is no way I could get another Citi Amex from this offer since I already have one right? I mean, it says in the terms and conditions "This Citi® / AAdvantage® card offer is valid only for new Citi® / AAdvantage® accounts applied for by February 28, 2013 pursuant to this offer and excludes any other Citi® / AAdvantage® credit cards offered." Or could I???

    But if they are so smart to determine when applying that I already have one, then why are they not smart enough to not send me this offer?

    What is the difference between being a "Citi® / AAdvantage®platinum cardmember" and the new "Citi SelectSM / AAdvantage®American Express® card"? Or is the Mastercard the Platinum and the Amex the Select?
