Citigroup is making another push for digital deposits.
The bank is planning on offering users of its American Airlines co-branded credit card a high-interest online savings account early next year, according to Jennifer Bombardier, a spokeswoman for the New York-based bank. To entice people to join, Citigroup will offer up to 50,000 in miles as a signup bonus and a 25% boost on miles earned through the card (capped at the first $50,000 spent.)
