Credit Cards Any Reason to Keep Citi AAdvantage Platinum Select Card

    I've had the Citi AAdvantage Platinum Select card for 18-24 months now and picked up the US Airways card a few months ago. Now my US Airways card is being converted to the Aviator Red, which seems to have all the same benifits as the Platinum Select except perhaps zone 1 boarding.

    Since I can't get any additional sign-up bonuses in the future from the Aviator card but I can get a new sign-up bonus on the Citi AAdvantage Platinum Select 18 months after I cancel it, is there really any reason to NOT cancel the Citi AAdvantage Platinum card asap?

    With the Aviator I still get the first checked bag free, 25% discount on in-flight purchases, reduced mileage awards, and 10% of redeemed mileage back annually (up to 10,000 miles) of which I've actually already reached the max for 2015.

    As additional background I also have a Citi AAdvantage Gold card, which I keep simply because I've had it since 2001.

    Andrew, to be honest I can't see an upside to you keeping it. I'd probably cancel it in your shoes as well.
