AAdvantage Executive card new benefit

Postby Battery111 » Mon May 11, 2015 3:24 pm

I just got the email today. Looks like Citi has added a new benefit to the AA Executive card. Reimbursement for global entry or Precheck. Looks like Citi is really trying to go head to head with AMEX these days. Can't help but wonder if we won't see a fee reimbursement perk on this card in the future.

I believe the WEMC has a ways to go to compete with the Platinum in terms of overall travel. One way the AA Exec has Plat licked is lounge access. I travel with my family so the ability to get the three of us in the Admirals Club saved us hundreds the year I had that card.

I'd be surprised to see fee reimbursement as that benefit seems to be designed to compete with the free checked bags and discounted inflight purchases most co-branded cards offer. You never know though...
