I pulled the trigger today and got the Citi AA WEMC; with my upcoming relocation and the sign on bonus I couldn't resist.
75k miles after $7500 spend in 3 mos. Kind of high but with relocation expenses and an expensive family photo shoot I should have no problem making it in the first two mos.
I'm now back up to 12 active cards...I have been trying to get down to 10 so this doesn't help in this area at all. I think this has solidified closing my Amex Plat this year though as I cannot justify two cards with AFs at $450 or higher.
The card comes with Admirals Club access and with Amex losing most of its club access this year I will get more value not to mention free checked bags for my family.
...and it is my first World Elite MC
Now to figure out what cards to close...
Oh, details: had to call to verify info but was approved in under 10 minutes from the time I started the online app process. Initial CL $19k which is about $5k higher than my avg. CL of $14.1k
