I just picked up our mail for the day and found a couple of letters from Citibank with offers for a small amount of bonus AA miles for spend categories. For the relevant spend categories we were offered 3x spend up to a maximum of 2,500 miles. Not a huge amount, but better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick as they say. Here is the letter for my account:
The categories for mine are not overly exciting but I am sure I will be able to make the most of it, which given the bonus is capped at 2,500 miles that means $833.33 of spend.
My wife got a very similar offer for her card but her spend categories were far more enticing, being department stores, restaurants, gas stations and grocery stores. The last two in particular are great stomping grounds for various forms of manufacturing spend, so meeting the required spend on that card will be very easy.
