    I don't use my AA card very much - I keep thinking I'll cancel it when the annual fee comes up, but they keep waiving the fee.

    I got a targeted promo from Citicard offering two club passes for only $250 spend at restaurants, grocery stores, gas stations, or department stores by the end of September; register by the end of August.

    Curiously, I recently opened an Amex Everyday card, which is the new default for some of that spending. It's almost as though Citi, despite the fact that I wasn't using any Citicard for this spend before, knew about the new Amex.

    For $600 spend I'll temporarily shift spend to the AA card (I did the math in another thread last week), but for $1250 I personally wouldn't.

    For those that got the offer, did you get the offer via e-mail? Snail mail?

    I feel that way, too. I was hoping to be able to overlap it with the 1,000 bonus pts for $1,000 spend that's part of his retention offer, but the categories are a stumper for me.

    As the manufactured spend people remind us regularly, office supply stores sell gift cards.

    Right. Two AA club passes aren't worth any extra effort to me. Not a trip to an office supply store, and certainly not a trip to Walmart.

    Got my passes recently, and Citi apparently noticed that they got some spend from me with this offer, so it's back now for me:

    2 Admirals Club® One-Day passes when you spend $600 on eligible purchases at gas stations, grocery stores, restaurants and department stores by 12/31/14

    I completed the spend, but no passes yet. Got the new offer, though. How long between completing the spend and getting the passes?

    I don't really know when I completed the spend. Maybe beginning of August, and got the passes 4-6 weeks later.
