I'm hopefully going to be able to get a new job in the upcoming year (around the 27-30k range) and I want the AAdvantage card. Is the card worth it to you? I mainly fly Southwest and American now and am debating when the time comes to app again to see if It is a card I should have.
Edit- I realize that this thread is about the CSP. I want the CSP too, but hopefully in another year or so I'll try for it, but congrats to those of you that have it!
You could say I'm a quick learner
also got in on the Delta 25,000 mile SunTrust offer last summer. Now it's a fun hobby.
My challenge to myself at the moment, is to take my boyfriend & I to Paris and Sorrento when we both graduate college. My goal? 2 round trip First Class tickets on British Airways (fuel surcharges aside), 6 nights in Paris, and 4 nights in Sorrento, ALL on points.
In my eyes, there's no such thing as too many cards. With Chase and American Express, I plan to keep (almost) everything I open. They are great banks, with great cards and nice rewards programs.
Cit is another story. Cit is kind of my points pinata. With all the bonuses they've been throwing out, it's silly not to try. The Citi AAdvantage Cards are worth it as long as you get one of the World Mastercard/Visa Signature/Select AMEX level cards. The reason I say this is because there are different levels that they will approve you for if you don't qualify. I will close my ThankYou Preferred and 3 of 4 AAdvantage cards in January (opened them for the point bonuses). i'll keep one for the priority boarding and bags. I could care less about the AAdmiral's Club passes because AMEX Platinum incudes lounge access. So it's really up to what you're looking for. Without the bonuses, I probably wouldn't care about the AAdvantage cards.
