Citi and American Airlines enlisted recording artist Gavin DeGraw to show off their new airline rewards card in New York City this week. The partners used Grand Central Terminal's historic Vanderbilt Hall as the backdrop for the launch of the Citi Executive / AAdvantage World Elite MasterCard. A VIP reception featuring the singer of "Chariot" and "Not Over You" also treated guests to a wine tasting and celebrity beauty advice.

New York commuters also got a special glimpse into the Admirals Club, AA's exclusive airport lounge. Airline employees recreated a version of the Admirals Club inside Grand Central Terminal, inviting passersby to enjoy complimentary refreshments and wireless Internet access.

Guests who enjoy the elite traveling experience may want to consider the the Citi Executive / AAdvantage World Elite MasterCard, which combines Admirals Club access for cardholders and their immediate family members (or two travel companions) with other premium benefits, including:

  • Earning 1 AAdvantage mile per dollar spent on purchases with the credit card
  • Double miles on eligible American Airlines purchases
  • Dedicated check-in areas and priority airport security screening lines
  • First checked bag check is free on domestic travel
  • Personal concierge service

New cardholders can also enjoy opportunities to earn up to 35,000 bonus miles in their first year with the card. After making $1,000 in purchases during the first four months, new cardholders earn 25,000 bonus miles. However, frequent fliers will likely appreciate an extra 10,000 Aadvantage Elite Qualifying Miles after spending $40,000 on purchases in a year on the card. Unlike other bonus miles, Elite Qualifying Miles count toward an AAdvantage member's elite membership status.

The Citi Executive / AAdvantage World Elite MasterCard comes with a $450 annual fee.
