I have the Citi Aadvantage AMEX card, I always wonder why they advertise the MC/Visa ones but not the Amex. Annual fee is $50, and last week I called them saying I was thinking of getting rid of my card... while they wouldn't take away the fee, they said they would offer me a statement credit of $50 if I spent $1k in the next three months. Considering most of my transactions are over $1k each, it was an easy way to get rid of the annual fee.
The only problem I had with the card is I normally never carry a balance or pay interest, and one month I ended up paying some interest. The following month I had paid everything off before the grace period ended, but they still charged me interest. One call to the customer service line and it was credited back though.
I had to dispute a charge with them when I bought my iPad (long story short, apple didn't credit gift cards correctly and overcharged me by about $150 and wouldn't budge). I sent in my forms asking for the $150 back, not the full purchase price, they immediately took that amount off my balance while they investigated, and finally two months later they said I wouldn't have to pay for it. So score one for Citibank for helping me out on that one.
I've earned enough miles for several free flights on AA, and every so often they'll send you an e-mail and if you enroll, you can earn 20 percent bonus miles on spending during a certain month, etc. Miles always faithfully post to my AA account, haven't had any problems.
If you fly AA a lot, and you're going to be using those miles for free flights, I'd say it's a no brainer.
