2 Citibank Accounts for 1 Airlines Account?

Postby ErnieP » Tue Dec 29, 2009 2:21 pm


I currently have an American Airlines rewards account. I also have a citibank mastercard tied to this account.

My question is, can I have my wife sign up for a new citibank card to get bonus miles but have her new credit card (and bonus miels) point to my already existing AA rewards account? Basically just want all rewards going to the same account but have both of us get the bonus miles for signing up for cards.

Also, how long after we receive bonus awards should we wait to close her new credit card?

I think you will need to read the fine print.

You probably need to keep the account open for a year to keep the miles but I don't know. And they probably will not let you get miles in one account for two different card offers. People try to do this kind of thing all the time. They have rules to stop it.

I don't think that will work...
Disclosure: I am a moderator/paid staff of this site, which does have advertising relationships with some credit cards that are discussed and linked to. Regardless, anything I say is my honest opinion.

Current Cards:
American Express: Blue Cash, Simply Cash Bank of America: WorldPoints Platinum Plus Chase: Amazon, British Airways, Cash Plus Rewards, Freedom, Ink Cash Citi: Thank You Premier, Dividend Platinum Select Discover: More
Primary Everyday Card: American Express Blue Cash
Primary Travel Card: Chase Sapphire Preferred
