    Just received via email:

    Start earning 5 AAdvantage® miles per $1 spent on retail purchases at clothing, home improvement, home furnishing and department stores. That's 4 AAdvantage bonus miles per $1 spent! Earn up to 2,500 AAdvantage® bonus miles, through 06/30/13.* Enroll now!

    This is not through the shopping mall, it appears to be a bonus on regular spend. I assume it will stack with various on-line mall offers.

    Unfortunately, the limit is pretty low - 2500 bonus miles. The bonus is 4x, at that rate you can spend up to $625 under this offer.

    It appears from TOS* that several Citi AA credit-card holders are receiving in emails today offers between 3-10x miles per dollar spent on various categories (some with travel, others as Larry above, still others with groceries and gas).

    * = the other site ;)

    I find these kind of promo's useful and 5x AA miles is nice deal if it's in an area you plan to spend. Free miles, good stuff. Hope I get one!​

    I got 3X but it seems there is no restriction based on spend category:

    "Start earning 3 AAdvantage® miles per $1 spent on purchases, including dining, groceries, shopping, entertainment, travel and so much more. Earn up to 2,500 AAdvantage® bonus miles, through 06/30/13.* Enroll now! "

    My 3x promo just ended March 31. I guess they are sending out a new batch now. So far, nothing here for me.
    CitiBank AA has been very generous with these promos and renewal bonus deals as well.
    Thanks CitiBank!

    Well, it shifted some of my spend to the Citi AA card in the short-term. By the time I am done with this, hopefully Barclay's will have send this loyal US Airways MasterCard holder a 15,000 mile bonus offer for his recently acquired second card.

    Seriously? I'd buy one VR and be done.

    What's your spending pattern been on this card?

    I've had the card about 4 years, but rarely use it (last time was probably in December). I've kept it mostly because of the new perks 10% miles back, etc.) At 10 X I will certainly spend $250 on it this Spring and collect the 2500 miles.

    I got a new offer in the mail today, but it's for just 3 x on grocery stores, gas stations, restaurants, drugstores and commuter transportation expenses. The 10x was great and I got the max - 2500 bonus miles. At 3 x, I will hardly use my card at all.

    Definitely getting the feeling this is quarterly. My TY card just got 5x on Groceries, Department Stores, and Gas Stations.

    1 500 Visa and a few gas tanks will hit the $625 and then back in into the pile of unused cards.

    I actually have a pile, rather than the traditional sock drawer. I have to many Socks.
