Citi AAdvantage Reduced Mileage Awards for Fourth Quarter 2012

American Airlines website

The fourth quarter Citi reduced AAdvantage Award chart has been published and there are a number of great destinations listed.  Here’s a look at a few of them:

Montreal, QC
Santa Barbara, CA
Monterey, CA
Sante Fe, NM,
Grand Junction, CO
Colorado Springs, CO
Charleston, SC
Reagan Airport, Washington D.C.
Walton Beach, FL

Depending upon which Citi AAdvantage card you have, you can save 5,000 to 7,500 AAdvantage miles on a round-trip MileSAAver award ticket.

Even better, Citi AAdvantage Reduced Mileage awards qualify for the 10% mileage rebate that you get when you use your Citi AAdvantage card to pay for the fees and taxes.  So rather than spending 25,000 AAdvantage Miles you’ll end up using just 15,750.

A few things to keep in mind:

• You have to call AAdvantage reservations to book an award, it can’t be done online.

• Unless you have AAdvantage Executive Platinum status, there’s a $25 processing fee for booking the award over the phone.

• Requires a round-trip award. Not good for one-way travel.

• Travel must be completed by December 31, 2012 (keep this in mind if you’re making holiday travel plans).

I counted 111 destinations, go here to see the full list.


  1. The Award Code Citibank gave me yesterday for reduced miles is only for Business and First Class miles according to American.

    Not sure this card is worth the time and effort I’ve had to put into it.
    Calling Citi yet again for a different Code.

  2. Here are the codes for the first Quarter of 2013:
    Main Cabin reduced mileage code: TB8X7A
    Business/First Class reduced mileage code: UB21X2A
