    Is This Card Worth $450? Citi AAdvantage Executive Credit Card Review
    By Lee Huffman/ Credit Cards/ Bald Thoughts/ baldthoughts.boardingarea.com

    The Citi AAdvantage Executive credit card charges an annual fee of $450. Do you think this card is worth that much? Well, it can be in certain situations. Let’s talk about the credit card and who benefits from having it in their wallet.

    American Airlines offers multiple credit cards through Citibank and Barclays for both consumers and small businesses. Each credit card has its pluses and minuses.

    Citibank has the following American Airlines credit cards:

    • AAdvantage MileUp card
    • Citi AAdvantage Platinum Select card
    • Citi AAdvantage Executive card
    • CitiBusiness AAdvantage Platinum Select card
    And Barclays offers a personal and business version:

    • AAdvantage Aviator Red World Elite Mastercard
    • AAdvantage Aviator Business Mastercard

    I really want to have access to the Admirals Club lounge at the Nashville airport, so I recently applied for the Citi AAdvantage Executive credit card.

    Citi AAdvantage Executive Credit Card Review
    When I applied for the Citi AAdvantage Executive credit card in December 2018, there was an offer for 50,000 American Airlines AAdvantage miles. To earn the miles, I would need to spend $5,000 within three months. I timed my application with some larger bills that were due, like my auto insurance and property taxes.

    Benefits of the Citi AAdvantage Executive Credit Card
    Besides the 50,000 mile sign-up bonus, there are some additional perks to the Citi AAdvantage Executive credit card. These benefits can save you money and improve your travel experience.

    • Priority Boarding with Group 4 (same as AAdvantage Gold members that fly 25,000 miles and spend $3,000 per year with American Airlines).
    • Free checked bag for you and up to 8 friends and family on the same itinerary.
    • Priority Check-in at the airport.
    • Save 25% on food and beverages bought in-flight with your Citi AAdvantage Executive credit card.
    • Priority Airport Screening (where available). I use CLEAR to skip the lines, so this isn’t a huge benefit to me. Use my referral link to try CLEAR free for two months.
    • Earn 10,000 Elite Qualifying Miles each year you spend $40,000 on the card.
    • Receive 2x miles when you use the credit card on eligible American Airlines purchases.
    • Earn 1x mile on all other purchases.
    • No foreign transaction fees.
    • Add up to 10 authorized users at no charge. The Chase Sapphire Reserve charges $75 per authorized user and the American Express Platinum Card charges $175.
    The biggest benefit to me is being able to have access to the American Airlines Admirals Club lounges when I travel......"
