I love Gmail. Especially the new feature that sorts incoming messages into separate inbox tabs: Primary, Social, and Promotions.
There is one drawback, I’m more likely to miss an interesting offer or deal because I tend to ignore anything that lands in the Promotions inbox.
Today I decided to clear out the unread message under the Promotions tab, and I’m glad I did, I found an 5 day old email from Citi that I’m happy I didn’t miss:
Ascend to a new level of luxury with the
Citi Executive / AAdvantage World Elite MasterCard
Apply now, get the card and earn 60,000 American Airlines AAdvantage bonus miles after making $5,000 in purchases within the first 3 months of cardmembership.
This is your passport to a world of luxury benefits:
• Admirals Club membership (a membership value of up to $500)
• Earn 10,000 Elite Qualifying Miles after spending $40,000 in purchases each calendar year
• No foreign transaction fees on purchases
• Earn two AAdvantage miles per $1 spent on eligible American Airlines purchases
• Expert Concierge Service
• Enjoy these VIP benefits and more for an annual fee of $450
That’s 20,000 more miles that the current offer on AA.com!
Unfortunately, it’s targeted, so I don’t have a link to share.
One downside of the card (for some) is that while many employers will pay for your Admirals Club membership, few will reimburse you for the annual fee. So, in effect, you’ll have to pick up the tab for club membership.
Anyway, keep an eye on your inbox!
Something else I nearly missed because it landed in my Promotions inbox, this interesting thread on Quora:
It includes photos of a Pakistan International Airlines that landed on its belly because the pilot forgot to drop the landing gear. Doh!
