Get an advantage in business with the CitiBusiness AAdvantage Credit Card
By Ben Woolsey
Citibank pioneered the frequent flier credit card genre, with its groundbreaking partnership with American Airlines. American was the first major airline to offer a frequent flier program for its best customers, who were usually business travelers. Not long after, Citi formed an alliance with American that lasts to this day to allow business and nonbusiness customers to earn extra AAdvantage Miles by using its credit card.
Recently, Citi raised the bar to new levels with the CitiBusiness AAdvantage MasterCard. The CitiBusiness AAdvantage MasterCard offers an astounding 20,000 frequent flier miles just for signing up for the credit card. Considering it only takes 24,000 miles to get a free domestic roundtrip coach ticket, it shouldn't take too long for a small business owner to reach that level with such a head start.
And the incentive bonus is just the icing on the cake considering the best-in-class basic features of the card. Things like no annual fee for the first 12 months (almost unheard of with the major co-branded airline credit card programs), reasonable interest rates and frequent flier miles that never expire.
As many frequent fliers have learned, redeeming a free ticket can sometimes be harder than earning one. Most airlines maintain strict blackout dates for the most popular travel dates and only allocate a certain number of seats to award tickets on most flights. But American has made this part easy with the CitiBusiness AAdvantage Credit Card. Cardholders are not subject to blackout dates and can book award ticket travel with ease through AAdvantage Aware Travel.
If you are looking for a business advantage when considering your next credit card, the CitiBusiness AAdvantage MasterCard may just your ticket to success.
