Citi, American Airlines Join For Elite Credit Card
The Citi Executive / AAdvantage World Elite MasterCard, available for a $450 annual fee, offers elite-level travel services and experiences to American's flyers. The card includes: Admirals Club membership privileges, no foreign transaction fees on purchases, waived baggage charge for first domestic checked bag and concierge service.
In addition, the new card offers a once per year AAdvantage Elite Qualifying mileage-earning opportunity, based on annual card spend, to put cardmembers on the fast track to American Airlines AAdvantage elite status membership. Later this year, Citi plans to introduce the Citi Executive/ AAdvantage card with EMV chip card functionality to provide cardmembers with the ability to use a technology that is increasingly important when making credit card purchases abroad.--Tanya Irwin
