    I recently got an AA Citibank Master card which states I get two free bags.
    My AA tickets were bought last year for an upcoming trip.
    Will I be eligible for the free bags on this trip? LAX-SJU.
    Thanks for your help

    I thought you had to use the card to purchase the ticket to qualify for the free bag benefit. I'd love to know if this is not the case.

    edekba is correct again. Here is what it says in the footnotes to the MC offer on aa.com

    First checked bag free
    For benefit to apply, the Citi® / AAdvantage® account must be open 7 days prior to air travel AND, reservation must include the primary cardmember's American Airlines AAdvantage® number 7 days prior to air travel.
