I booked GRU on 05/24/12 with 92500 miles and got 9.250 back on 06/04.
By the way, I sent a message to Citi and got confirmation that the Exec World MC does NOT qualify for this credit, despite erroneous information on the site.
That's pretty crazy given the annual fee.
Booked two biz class award tickets LAX-BKK for 220K AA miles and immediately got this and I am not an AA elite member:
I am however a CITI Visa & MC cc holder
Yep. That's what you get for your $85- or $95-level Citi card. You've gotten the annual maximum mileage rebate now (10,000) and even if you redeem more miles in 2012, can't get another of those (and couldn't, even if you were elite) this calendar year. Enjoy Thailand.
Booked 8/7 and 9/3 and received rebate for both on 9/18, backdated to 9/3.
Redeemed 102,500 miles on 7/19 and the 10% redemption bonus at 10,000 was posted at the same time on the same date. It is almost real time now, I think.
Did it actually post on the same day or was it back dated?
Might be backdated
That would match previous comments on this process in that case then, credited and backdated to the redemption date.
So it is true for most people here tht using any cc other than citi AA card is not a problem getting the 10% rebate on miles redeemed?
used my Hilton Amex Surpass for two 50,000-mi redemptions and got two 5,000-mi rebates from AA w/o incident.
Yep, it's tied to being a cardholder, not using the card.

Yippee! jst redeemed 80k miles for 2 rt to LHR to visit with friends. Looking forward to the 8k rebate.
If you have 2 or 3 AA cards, is there any chance you'd get multiple 10% rebates (e.g. redeem 75,000 miles, and get 7,500 miles as a rebate three times for each of three AA cards you have?) I realize it's a long shot but I thought I'd ask.
If that doesn't work, is there any chance that having multiple cards means you're capped at 20k miles per year or 30k instead of 10k? For example, if I redeem 220k this year, maybe I get 22k back.
I'm not necessarily asking what the T&Cs say. I'm asking about the actual experience of multiple card holders who have redeemed more than 100k miles this year.
Does anyone know whether the rebate miles are deducted if the award tickets are cancelled? I would assume they are, but wonder what others' experiences have been.
No idea, but I suspect your intuition is correct.
On a related note, I'm looking forward to 2013 so my 10K rebate opportunity refreshes!
I redeemed 270k miles two months ago and have two Citi AA cards. I got one 10k rebate. Which I was still pleased about.
It is a nice benefit. I'm sure I'll be getting the 10k rebate early each year.
Just received my 10k for this year a couple days ago.
I meant to add I got a 10k bonus within a couple weeks of the benefit being announced which blew my 2012 limit , hence my prediction that I'd get it annually as long as it exists.
FYI, the 10% rebate on American Airlines awards up to 10k miles in rebate per year looks like it's based on the time of redemption, not when the flight was flown. I redeem some miles for a trip over NYE where my outbound was in 2012 and my return was in 2013 but it looks like the full rebate was posted for when the miles were debited from my account.
Yes, I believe there are quire a few comments about this on the first page of this thread from April/May 2012.
I just recently got my 10K and another 10K for my wife. We booked two one-ways instead of an RT so we could use miles from each of our accounts and secure our 10% discount.
