04/05/2016: Sent an message through Citi website enquiry if I had met the requirements for the promotion.
04/08/2016: Got a response back confirming that I met the requirements for the 50K AA bonus promotion. Possibly posting in July 2016.
05/13/2016: Saw a $300 credit in my account for a different promotion number than the one I signed up. Emailed Citi. A case was open to check on this by Citi on 05/14/2016.
05/21/2016: Received the response on the case through E-communication & not through the regular message center. This caused the delay when I took my next step.
“Our records indicate that your account was credited $300.00 on May 11, 2016, for meeting the required terms and conditions of Promotion 4368VWMRZ7.”
07/08/2016: Sent in another enquiry about crediting me with a wrong promotion. Another case opened on 07/08/2016.
08/01/2016: Citi acknowledges that I have completed the needed requirements for the 50K AA bonus promotion. Will retract the $300 credit & deposit the AA miles. Response through E-communication
“Your account does qualify for Promotion WD3QFS2Y4C, which offered 50,000 AA Miles. Citibank is eager to have these miles applied to your American Airlines AAdvantage account, however; will need your American Airlines AAdvantage account number to process your request. Please contact Citibank Online Services at 1-800-374-9700 at your earliest convenience to provide the AAdvantage account number”
08/31/2016: $300 credit retracted from my account. AA miles posted on my account.
