WHY YOU SHOULD GET IT
This is the highest bonus this card has offered but does that mean you should apply right away? Not exactly. To get the biggest bang for your buck, you can combine this and the Citi Prestige®, which I have written in more detail here. In a nutshell, if you have both cards you can redeem them at 1.6 cents each for cash paid American Airlines flights. If not, you will at least be able to redeem the points for $750 worth of flights.
I would use the points for cash paid flights on American Airlines — which is especially great because you don't have to stress about finding an award flight.
There are quite a few travel partners but unless you are experienced in the points game, you may not recognize many of the airline partners. The best value for the points getting the Premier and the Prestige card as mentioned above. You won't need to worry about transferring to these partners for now but that is always an option.
