Citi AAdvantage Card Perk

I am not sure how I didn't realize this until today. But Citi and AAdvantage give reduced price domestic ticket awards to card holders. Be careful when redeeming AA awards that you didn't waste an opportunity to use Avios miles at a better rate. The list of cities changes periodically, with a few months notice.

This is the AA Page listing the cities.

There are some tricks here; if you miss your connection you could potentially get a low priced award to a transcontinental flight that isn't on the discount list. For example, JFK-SFO-FAT with a missed last connection could get you the discount on at least half the trip. SFO - JFK - Some random east coast place, could do the same for the way back. The discount is pretty substantial, 7500 miles or at least $100 worth of miles valued conservatively.


Here is the table of current options. Make sure to use the discount code.
